Guidelines for Proposal Submissions and Evaluations

The Joint Venture’s role is to encourage and facilitate international and cross-flyway studies focusing on high-priority information needs for northern-nesting goose populations, as described in the Prospectus, Strategic Plan, and other guidance documents available from the AGJV Coordination Office.

Consequently, the AGJV will receive proposals in three categories:

  1. Informational those requesting only technical review, advice on operations, or coordination with other related projects, and for inclusion in AGJV compendia;
  2. Endorsement – those that are seeking endorsement as an AGJV project, but not specifically requesting AGJV funds;
  3. Endorsement and Funding – those partially-funded or unfunded projects seeking endorsement as an AGJV priority and seeking AGJV assistance in locating financial cooperators.

Proposals will be given full review by the AGJV Technical Committee with an endorsement recommendation and priority designation if required.  The AGJV Management Board generally reviews proposals twice per year, but may act outside the regular meeting schedule to expedite support if necessary. When funding is available, requests for proposals by the AGJV, which outline highest priority information needs and submission deadlines, are posted to the AGJV website and other media.

Proposals should be submitted to the AGJV Coordinator, if possible in electronic format at the email address below.
