The State of North Carolina's Cooperating Technical State (CTS) Committee held its second meeting on November 14, 2000. The meeting began with an overview of the North Carolina CTS Program for those who were unable to attend the Kickoff meeting in October. Then the full Committee met from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

John Dorman, CTS Committee Program Director, introduced the two private contractors selected by the State to conduct the work: Greenhorne & O'Mara and Watershed Concepts.

Status updates were presented to the Committee on the progress of the initial scoping meetings. Scoping meetings had taken place in the following counties: Franklin, Nash, Onslow, Jones, Carteret, Craven, Pitt, Beaufort, Edgecombe, Halifax, Wilson, Warren, Vance, Scotland, Richmond, and Montgomery.

Status updates were also presented on the development of the Mapping Activity Statements and Delivery Orders. Mapping Activity Statements are cooperative agreements between the State, FEMA, and other Federal partners to implement components of the State's program. Delivery Orders are mechanisms for the State to task work to its contractors. Mapping Activity Statements were being developed for the following tasks: Project Scoping for Six Eastern River Basins, Information Management System, Digital Base Map for Six Eastern River Basins, Digital Elevation Data Development for Six Eastern River Basins, and updated Flood Hazard Data and Digital FIRM Production for Six Eastern River Basins. Future Mapping Activity Statements will be developed for the remaining basins in the State. Copies of the Delivery Orders for LIDAR/DEM and IT Infrastructure Requirements Analysis/Design were provided. LIDAR/DEM Requests for Proposal (RFPs) were issued on November 9, 2000, and the IT Infrastructure Analysis/Design RFPs would be issued shortly.

Other topics discussed during the November 14 meeting were the CTS Committee bylaws, the accuracy standards for LIDAR data development, and the strategy for developing the updated flood theme.
