Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: Deep snows and high stream flows could slow inventory start, move project completion back. Project would still be completed in 1999.


Reviews and recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

Recommendation:
Pass (Fundable)
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Management Issue: Management concern that the USFS should have included this work as part of the original assessment (in-lieu issue).
Recommendation:
Fund (low priority)
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

In-lieu funding issue. Proposed tasks appear to be "in lieu of other expenditures authorized or required from other entities under other agreements or provisions of law". (Section 4.(h)(10)(A) of PNW Power Act).
Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The proposal was not related to the Fish and Wildlife Program. It was a good idea to determine where road crossings are a barrier to bull trout. The ISRP questioned whether BPA should fund this project or the USFS.
