1. We Would Love to Hear from You!

You are receiving this survey because you have been identified as a representative of an agency or organization that has received funding in the past or is currently administering a grant award through the North Coast Resource Partnership (NCRP) Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) program. Programmatic evaluation has been taking place on an ongoing basis – with NCRP staff documenting input from stakeholders and partners. In anticipation of Proposition 1 IRWM funding, (anticipated to roll out in the fall of 2018), the NCRP would like to gather information about the project proposal solicitation process and contract administration.  Given your past experience as a project sponsor, your insights are valuable and will assist the NCRP to identify barriers to participating in the next round of funding and potential solutions. The Department of Water Resources has been very interested in and receptive to input from the NCRP since the inception of the IRWM program, creating an opportunity to work in partnership with the State to enhance this program. Your feedback will inform the NCRP’s continued collaboration with DWR to continually improve the IRWM program. Please visit the NCRP website for more information (https://northcoastresourcepartnership.org/).

The NCRP places a strong emphasis on science-based planning, adaptive management and process improvement – constantly evaluating and seeking to advance its programmatic approach as new information becomes available. In addition to improving the NCRP processes, programmatic evaluation also enables the NCRP to articulate challenges with the IRWM program, positive aspects of the program, as well as a set of concrete recommendations that demonstrate responsiveness and accountability in terms of use of public funds. This survey will support the NCRP’s current programmatic evaluation and continued improvement.


We hope you are willing to participate in the following survey by providing responses to as many of the questions below as you are able. We anticipate that the survey should take about 20 – 30 minutes to complete.
