Updated Schedule for the Solicitation of Near Term Actions and Adoption of 2018-2022 Puget Sound Action Agenda
The Puget Sound Partnership heard from partners that the original timeline for the release of the Solicitation for Near Term Actions for the 2018-2022 Action Agenda did not allow adequate time for quality work and discussion. In response to these concerns, we have extended the timeline, and associated deadlines, for the solicitation. The new schedule provides more time for quality work and collaboration, which will enable us to collectively make successful progress toward our Puget Sound recovery goals. Details of the new schedule are outlined below.
- The Solicitation for Near Term Actions for the 2018-2022 Action Agenda is expected be released in mid-November 2017. The solicitation will include deadlines and will provide detail on the NTA development and review process.
- The period for NTA development will occur between mid-November 2017 and the end of March 2018. Pre-registration for all NTAs will be due on December 22, 2017.
- The period of NTA review will occur between April and July 2018.
- The period of Action Agenda development, review, public comment, and revision will occur between April and December of 2018.
- The 2018-2022 Action Agenda is anticipated to be adopted and published in December 2018.
We are dedicated to continually improving the Action Agenda and to building strong partnerships so that we can collectively and successfully make progress towards our Puget Sound recovery goals. We are confident that these adjustments are an important step toward building an Action Agenda that better addresses all of our needs and is responsive to partner input.

Time line extended for the Solicitation for Near Term Actions for the 2018-2022 Action Agenda Implementation Plan
The Partnership has heard from its partners that the current timeline for the release of the final Solicitation for Near Term Actions does not allow adequate time for quality work and discussion. We agree, and therefore, are extending the deadlines for the Solicitation
We have adjusted the deadline for public comments on the draft Solicitation to August 4th, 2017, and we are targeting November 2017 for release of the final Solicitation.
After additional consultation with affected partners, we will release a new detailed schedule for adoption of the 2018-2022 Action Agenda by early September 2017.
