Periodically, Geoscience BC issues Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to seek out research partners who will help us generate high quality and unbiased earth science research and data.

The project proposals we receive in response to an RFP are reviewed by members of the relevant Minerals, Energy (Oil & Gas) or Energy (Geothermal) Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) who ensure that each project helps us achieve our mission by generating data that:

  •       Improves our collective level of geoscience knowledge;
  •       Informs responsible natural resource development and investment decisions;
  •       Catalyzes socio-economic opportunities; and  
  •       Stimulates innovation and geoscience technologies.

The TACs make recommendations to the Board of Directors, who make final funding decisions.
