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:

Management Issue: Explain why this work is not redundant with many other projects (e.g., EPA, DEQ, StreamNet, FPC). True, currently there is a problem with data access, but existing agencies should fill the role.
Recommendation:
Fund (low priority)

Recommendation:
Inadequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This is a poor proposal ranked low in the set. It does not explain present databases and their inadequacies. The proposal does not describe specific plans to work with agencies such as EPA or ODEQ, in spite of support letters. The work may be needed, but the proposal is not technical enough to tell.
