R — PRODUCE A SHORT FORMAT VIDEO TO ILLUSTRATE THE CONCEPTS OF IEA WAD-12-04254 071712 Melvin N. Fondue, Phone (206) 526-6043, Email melvin.n.fondue@noaa.gov This is a combined synopsis / solicitation for service to produce a short format video to illustrate the concepts of IEA, with special emphasis on trade-offs omong ecosystem components, including species, foodwebs, habitat, water quality, and human well-being.   Background Integrated ecosystem assessments (IEAs) are a critical science-support element enabling an ecosystem-based management (EBM) strategy, and are an emerging science tool to support fisheries management, and the Pacific Fisheries Management Council ecosystem management plan. An IEA is a formal synthesis and quantitative analysis of information on relevant natural and socio-economic factors in relation to specified ecosystem management goals. It involves and informs citizens, industry representatives, scientists, resource managers, and policy makers through formal processes to contribute to attaining the goals of EBM. IEAs begin with an identification of critical management and policy questions to define the scope of information and analyses necessary to inform management. IEAs use quantitative analyses and ecosystem modeling to integrate a range of social, economic, and natural science data and information to assess the condition of the ecosystem relative to the identified scope. IEAs also identify potential management options, and these are evaluated against EAM goals. IEAs are peer-reviewed and communicated to stakeholders, resource managers and policy makers. IEAs differ from other assessments like Environmental Impact Statements in that they explicitly consider all components of the ecosystem and address the broad goals of EAM. A key goal of IEAs is to move towards clear, well-defined ecosystem objectives built upon a science strategy that fuses ecosystem components into a single, dynamic, fabric in which both human and natural factors are intertwined. Periodic assessment of biological, chemical, physical and socio-economic attributes of ecosystems allows for coordinated evaluations of national marine, coastal and Great Lakes ecosystems to promote their sustainability under a variety of human uses and environmental stresses. Moreover, IEAs involve and inform a wide variety of stakeholders and agencies that rely on science support. IEAs integrate knowledge and data collected by NOAA and other regional entities including other federal agencies, states, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions. IEAs also identify critical knowledge and data gaps, which, if filled, will reduce uncertainty and improve our ability to fully employ ecosystem approaches to management. The objective of this contract is to generate communication products for the general public, stakeholders, and resource managers about IEAs. Theproducts will be short-form videos suitable for electronic displays, presentations and websites. 2.0 SERVICES REQUIRED   The vendor will provide the following services to assist in addressing the objective and questions in section 1.0 of this statement of work.

PERFORMANCE WORK STATEMENT FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES DEBT MANAGEMENT SERVICES 1. OVERVIEW/BACKGROUND As part of the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Financial Management Service, our mission as Debt Management Services (DMS) is to improve the quality of the federal government’s financial management by increasing the collection of delinquent debt owed to the government, by providing debt management services to all federal agencies, and by protecting the financial interests of the American taxpayer. DMS also develops and implements government wide debt management policies. The Financial Management Service (FMS) serves as the government’s central debt collection agency, managing the government’s non-tax delinquent debt portfolio. As a part of FMS, DMS’ goal is to provide a broad range of services, to be more responsive to the needs of client agencies, and to bring about more equity and uniformity in how the U.S. Government treats its delinquent debtors. We provide these services through a network linking our own debt collection expertise and capabilities with those of the Federal Program Agencies’ Debt Collection Center, private collection services, and the U.S. Department of Justice. The Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (DCIA) provides that any non-tax debt or claim owed to the U.S. Government that is 180 days delinquent, with certain exceptions, will be referred to the Department of the Treasury for collection, which validates the existence of two primary methods of collecting debt: The Treasury Offset Program (TOP) and The Cross-Servicing Program. Our call center collection agents provide both servicing that focuses on customer service to federal program agencies, and delinquent debtors. Cross-Servicing functions involve contacting debtors (phone and correspondence); negotiating repayment agreements; sending debts to Private Collection Agencies; reporting to credit bureaus; issuing Administrative Wage Garnishment (AWG) orders; and referring debts to the Department of Justice for litigation. 2. OBJECTIVE Our objective is to incorporate the industry’s current best practices and techniques. The facilitation should assist our 79 call center collection agents with techniques that build positive connections with debtors, provide an access to their financial information, and obtain effective payment promises that are within the guidelines of US consumer law such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), federal and state credit laws. Our supervisors and leads, total of 12 are expected to gain the essential communication, leadership and coaching skills, and best tactics and practices for agent training and development, motivation and retention, team collaboration, performance measurement and management, and self-assessment. The overall experience will provide facilitators the opportunity to deliver a curriculum that will provide agents empowerment and an extensive understanding of the direct financial impact experienced by debtors; a positive connection with people skills and negotiations; enhanced interpersonal skills, leadership, and problem-solving skills that are beneficial to all areas of life . 3. DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING COURSE Call Center Collections Certification This 3 day program should strive to improve debt resolution rates, agent productivity metrics, morale and turnover, and skills-based approaches that are supported by research and call center sciences; and Supervision and Leadership Skills for Collection Call Center Supervisors This 2 day certification program should be designed to provide the “how to” best practice for executing day-to-day, tactical job requirements with finesse. Supervisors and those in leadership roles will gain the core skills, knowledge, and in-class practice opportunities.
