I. INTRODUCTION/ OBJECTIVES:

The objective of this project is to hire a consultant (Contractor) who has a cultural
perspective and experience in Native American customs to develop a resource
materials kit for the Native American tribes and bands. This resource kit will provide
guidance to these communities on how to plan and implement sustainable techniques
and use environmentally preferred products in their construction and demolition
projects, as well as in their day-to-day business operations.

The contractor will be required to conduct a literature search of resource materials
related to buying environmentally preferable products and building sustainable
buildings, projects, and businesses. In conjunction with the Board’s Contract Manager,
the resource materials gathered will be reviewed, evaluated, and the best materials
chosen. The Contractor will develop a resource materials kit specific to Native American
tribes and bands. All tasks and materials are subject to the review and approval by the
Contract Manager.

The resource materials kit will address remodeling, renovation, building and operating
established businesses, business parks, and/or new construction within California
Native American communities. These resource materials shall include, but are not
limited to, the following information:

       Recycled-Content Products
       Sustainable Landscaping, including compost and mulch use
       Sustainable Building Practices
       Environmentally Preferable Purchasing
       Energy Efficient Products/Materials/Systems/Practices


II. WORK TO BE PERFORMED:

The Contractor shall: 1) conduct a literature search of green building/environmentally
preferable products publications, case studies, guidebooks, fact sheets, etc; 2) obtain a
copy, preferably a master copy, of each publication identified in item #1; 3) provide a list
of existing (less than 3 years old) building/construction and/or improvement projects on
tribal lands throughout California; 4) develop a list of actual sustainable
building/construction projects that have occurred on tribal lands; 5) provide a list of
future construction projects planned and/or proposed on tribal lands; 6) review and
evaluate the literature obtained as a basis for the development of a resource materials
kit specific to Native American tribes and bands to provide the information and guidance
