US-Mexico - Implementation Border 2020 Program
In general the BECC will coordinate an operating strategy with EPA Region 6 for implementation of Border 2020 programs and related initiatives along the U.S. -Mexico border region. The BECC will use its expertise on border issues, institutional strengths and working knowledge in dealing with stakeholders on both sides of the of border to develop the best method for implementation of Border 2020 related programs and projects. The BECC and/or its authorized sub-consultant(s) will accomplish the services defined. As part of this task the BECC will participate with the EPA in the coordination and implementation of Border 2020 projects. The BECC's role will include the development of the initial public solicitation Request for Proposal (RFP) for projects that meet the criteria establish under the Border 2020 Program. In addition, the BECC will participate in the evaluation, selection, and award of grant funds for project implementation. As the GHG Climate Action Planning continues in the six Region 6 Border states, the BECC could support efforts to date to complete the action plans for each of the six states. In the quest to reduce emissions at border crossings, in which EPA is currently engaged with the Council on Environmental Quality and the JWC, the BECC will support the ongoing analysis of border wait times and increased air emissions, potential implementation of any recommended actions, and related cross-agency/cross-border efforts to address idling at land ports-of-entry.
