These copies should be forwarded to the DEMD offices in Lakewood, Colorado, to the attention of the Energy and Mineral Development Program. All products generated by EMDP studies may be subject to release under FOIA, as noted above. Products include all reports and technical data obtained during the study such as geophysical data, geochemical analyses, core data, lithologic logs, assay data of samples tested, results of special tests, maps and cross sections, status reports and the final report. J. Requests for Technical Assistance The DEMD staff may provide technical consultation (i.e., work directly with tribal staff on a proposed project), provide support documentation and data, provide written language on specialized sections of the proposal and suggest ways a tribe may obtain other assistance, such as from a company or consultant specializing in a particular area of expertise. However, the tribe is responsible for preparing the executive summary, justification and scope of work for their proposal. The tribe must notify DEMD in writing that they require assistance, and DEMD will then appoint staff to provide the requested assistance. The tribe’s request must clearly specify the type of technical assistance desired. Requests for technical assistance should be submitted by the deadline stated in the DATES section for such requests to allow DEMD time to provide the appropriate assistance. Tribes not seeking technical assistance should attempt to submit their EMDP proposals well in advance of the deadline to allow DEMD time to review the proposals for possible deficiencies and allow ample time to contact the tribe with requests for revisions to the initial submission.
