WSCC publishes grant and contract requirements for conservation districts and partners when funding is received through WSCC appropriations. These requirements are published in the WSCC Grant and Contract Procedure Manual, which is reviewed by WSCC staff prior to each new biennium.
The Commission has approved staff to send the proposed Grant and Contract Procedure Manual to districts for a 45-day review period. For the most part, there are no major changes to the proposed Grant and Contract Procedure Manual, which you can review here. The regional manager and finance team worked together to address, define, and clarify the content in the manual. We may have one additional change around an electronic signature policy in the future; the WSCC is still in the process of developing our own electronic signature policy as a first step.
Please use the link below to submit any comments or questions by Wednesday, March 31st. This manual will be presented at the May Commission meeting and effective 7/1/2021.
If you have any questions as you review the updated Manual, please reach out to any member of the WSCC finance team or your Regional Manager. Thank you!
