To help prospective candidates, can you add some more specifics.  Such as:

  • Will the work be for a government or private entity?
  • What field is the work in?  You mention Land Managment and Natural Resources, but candidates would probably want to know which aspects of these broad fields.  For example, Regulation, Operations, Policy Making support, etc.
  • Since you added a category of "Manager", how many people would the candidate directly supervise?
  • Can you be more specific on where in Idaho the position would be?  Idaho is a pretty big state and a position in Bonners Ferry (Canadian border, very small town) might be of interest to some while Boise (central Idaho, big city) might be of interest to others.
  • What company or organization do you work for?  No offense, but how do we know you have a legitimate offer to make?  In this day and age where Identity Theft is rampant, that question needs to be asked.
  • Does your organization have a range already established for what the position might pay?  Yes, I understand it is a RFP and such is negotiable, but if you already know some basic limits which could be expressed as range, it would help all parties if that is stated up front so nobody wastes time in trying to see if the there is a match only to find out after much interaction that the compensation is not agreeable (and I say this as someone who has experienced this many times - compensation gets discussed last, way into the hiring process, and only then do the parties find they are worlds apart).

My apologies if the last two points come across as very direct, but they are valid concerns.
