The Upper Colorado River Commission (UCRC) is requesting qualification-based proposals for legal, economic, and engineering-related analyses and services to investigate specific concerns and challenges related to water demand management as a component of the Upper Basin Drought Contingency Plan (DCP).

The Contractor(s) will work with State agency staff members of the Upper Division States of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming through the UCRC staff to explore the feasibility of developing and employing temporary, voluntary, and compensated demand management within the Upper Colorado River Basin, in a manner that helps reduce consumptive water use, if and when needed, to ensure ongoing compliance with the 1922 Colorado River Compact. The UCRC may make multiple awards under this solicitation. For more about the RFP, click here.
