On February 26, 2005, EGGI was awarded a contract for Water Resource Management Plan & Consultant Services as a result of Request For Proposals (RFP) #63-05sm, released January 6, 2005.  Seven (7) proposals were received and evaluated as a result of the RFP, and a contract was negotiated and awarded in a not-to-exceed amount of $72,000 to EGGI as the top-ranked firm.  Modification #1 for $5,500 was issued in May 2005, resulting in a revised contract total of $77,500.
