Section 50. Selection of proposals

3 AAC 148.050. Selection of proposals

(a) The department will assign a score to eligible grant applications, using the scoring system described in the solicitation for evaluation of applications, based on the department's evaluation of

(1) the applicant's readiness and ability to complete the project successfully in light of its organizational structure, experience, history, and personnel;

(2) the communities and industry sectors that will benefit from the project and the extent of the impact of the downturn in the commercial fishing industry for salmon on those communities and industry sectors and on the region in which they are located;

(3) the project's potential to further the objectives in 3 AAC 148.030(a) (3) during the life of the grant;

(4) the applicant's financing structure and contribution to the project;

(5) the long-term sustainability of the project and its potential to further the objectives in 3 AAC 148.030(a) (3) after the grant has been exhausted; and

(6) other criteria identified in the solicitation.

(b) The department will forward its scoring calculations and the corresponding applications to the following, who may comment upon the scoring:

(1) the commissioner of fish and game, or the commissioner's designee;

(2) the commissioner of labor and workforce development, or the commissioner's designee;

(3) the fisheries policy advisor in the Office of the Governor.

(c) The commissioner may modify the department's scoring calculations, taking into account any comments received. The commissioner will resolve equal scores for projects based on the overall potential of the proposals to further the purpose of this chapter.

(d) The commissioner will make a preliminary award determination with respect to each application. The department will notify applicants of the preliminary award determinations by mail.

(e) An applicant whose proposal was rejected or modified in the preliminary award determination may submit to the commissioner a request for reconsideration. The request for reconsideration must be in writing and must be received by the department within 15 calendar days after the applicant receives mailed notice of the preliminary award determination. The request for reconsideration must include documentation and discussion in support of the applicant's request.

(f) The commissioner will review a request for reconsideration and may issue a written decision. If a written decision is not issued within five days after a request for reconsideration is delivered, the request is considered denied. The commissioner's decision on a request for reconsideration is final for purposes of judicial review.

(g) Upon completion of the review of all pending requests for reconsideration, the department will mail to applicants its final award determinations. In the final award determinations, the commissioner may decline to award, or may reduce the amount of a grant that was proposed to be awarded in a preliminary award determination, if reconsideration of another preliminary award determination has altered the availability of money.
