Abstract: This project is the administrative and outreach component of the integrated Long-term Monitoring of Marine Conditions and Injured Resources and Services program referred to as Gulf Watch Alaska (GWA). PWSSC serves as the fiscal agent for non-Trustee Agency recipients of GWA funds with Hoffman as Administrative Lead. This continues Hoffman’s role, as with GWA during FY12–16. Hoffman is also serving as Outreach and Community Involvement Lead for FY17-21, a new role as compared to the previous five years. As a Program Management Team member, Hoffman contributes to the coordination and management of over two dozen scientists generating monitoring data and synthetic information about the ecosystems and marine conditions within the spill area. PWSSC has extensive fiscal experience with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and is the party through which all non-Trustee Agency funds are distributed. PWSSC issues and manages contracts for subawards to the various non-Trustee Agencies participating in GWA, for whom we also coordinate semi-annual reporting to NOAA. PWSSC also works with Trustee Agency principal investigators, with whom we coordinate reporting to the EVOSTC. PWSSC ensures regular program engagement with EVOSTC staff, Trustees, and Public Advisory Committee members. We coordinate logistics for annual PI meetings for all GWA participants and make telecommunications available for remotely-connected meetings. We support travel and logistics for all GWA Science Review Panel members. We will convene the Outreach Steering Committee, which will guide the development of products to inform the public and managers about changes in the environment and the impact of said changes on injured resources and services. PWSSC is also the administrative lead agency for the Herring Research and Monitoring program, allowing for efficient fiscal management of and reporting for both programs. We are not proposing any major changes to this project for FY18.
