The total project budget is $70k, which includes reimbursables such as travel, supplies, and other expenses. $5k is currently budgeted for marketing and public awareness, with an additional $10k reserved for the creation of a project website.  Respondents may include teams comprised of multiple firms and/or individuals, and a multi-disciplinary approach is encouraged.
