Reviews and recommendations

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

Recommendation:
Return to Sponsor for Revision
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Technical Issue: Need to provide more detail on the measurable objectives and expected results and monitoring and evaluation plans.

Technical Issue: Explain the printing vs. staff costs.

Management Issue: Management concern that this may be an in-lieu issue.

Technical Issue: Explain if this project is coordinated with the Methow council (project 9155).


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 after revision
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The revisions make the proposal marginally adequate, but there was still not enough detail or technical content regarding the program. The public education idea was good but the proposal did not convey how it would be implemented.
