One of the features of the authorisation legislation is the possibility for Forest Service and BLM to apply to other authorised hostess projects the value of timber or other wood products that have been withdrawn as compensation for the costs of the services received, to choose contracts and agreements on a `better value` basis and to award a contract or agreement for a maximum period of ten years, stimulate long-term investments in the local community. Hostess contracts can be used for treatments aimed at improving, preserving or restoring the health of forests or pastures. restoring or maintaining water quality; improving fish and wildlife habitat; and reduce hazardous fuels that pose risks to communities and ecosystem values. A variant of the flight attendant contract is the Master Stewardship Agreement, which can be concluded without a tendering procedure through multilateral agreements. Placer County and the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) have entered into a Master Stewardship Agreement to facilitate the removal of excess wood biomass from LTBMU projects and the transportation of this biomass to the Cabin Creek Biomass Energy Facility. For specific projects, additions to the Master Stewardship Agreement have been developed to explore ways to improve the processing and transport of biomass to energy facilities. Section 604 (16 USC 6591c) of Public Law 108-148, as provided for in Section 8205 of Law 113-79, as amended by the Agriculture Act of 2014, gives the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management permanent authority to enter into management contracts or agreements to achieve land management objectives for national forests or public lands that meet the needs of the local community and Rural. Section 8205 replaces the temporary authority given to the forest service in section 347 of Public Law 105-277, the Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Appropriations Act, 1999. The USDA Forest Service and the Department of the Interior`s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have been granted new authority to implement hostess contracts and agreements in Section 8205 of Public Law 113-79, the Agriculture Act of 2014 (PDF, 75 KB).
The Agriculture Act 2014 gives the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management the possibility to conclude, for a maximum period of ten years, draft flight attendant contracts with individuals or public or private bodies to provide land management services for forests or national public spaces that meet the needs of the local and rural community. § 8205 replaces the power conferred on the forest service under article 347. The flight attendant contract is an approach to partnerships that can lead to greater efficiency and synergy for partners. Public Law 108-7, initiated by appropriations Act of 2003, gives the Bureau of Land Management and the United States Forest Service the power to enter into contracts or hostess agreements in order to achieve the Agency`s land management objectives and meet the needs of the Community. One of the main functions of a flight attendant contract is to carry out projects that improve, preserve or restore the health of forests. Standard flight attendant contracts are concluded through a tendering procedure. The agreements can be used for flight attendant contracts. The following draft agreements were provided as examples of how forest service hostess agreements are implemented. It is possible that the templates for official stewardess agreements have been updated since the publication of these examples. Forest service staff should find on the internal website for grants and agreements, the templates (only forestry officers), the current version of the template for the development of a new hostess agreement. Integrated resource contracts are used in the flight attendant contract.
These contracts allow the Agency to exchange goods for services. Different approaches or types of agreements are available to facilitate the removal of biomass from wooded areas. In the past, the removal of waste has resulted in the removal of this material from biomass. Placer County will work with authorities and landowners to implement agreements that will allow for economic exploitation and also provide significant environmental benefits. . . .
