This category comprises most of the activities necessary to acquire or lease a parcel of land or conservation easement, including the purchase or lease itself. Some activities associated with land acquisitions and conservation easements must be performed by BPA staff, and therefore can only be added to a BPA Internal Statement of Work (can not be added to a contract):
- WE# 5, Land Purchase - includes the direct wiring of money to escrow associated with real estate transactions and,
- WE# 6, TBL Work - covers work the Transmission Business Line's Real Property group provides in support of a Fish and Wildlife project, including: appraisal review, appraisals, help in development of an MOA, real estate negotiations, survey/photogrammetry, GIS work, and relocation costs.
The BPA COTR is responsible for creating the BPA Internal Statement of Work. Note
