Comment:

Reduce FTE funding with cost share
Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose after revision
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The revised proposal made little improvements from the original. The original is incomplete and makes no direct or indirect links to Council program measures. It needs to provide more information regarding facilities, monitoring and rationale. Although the project has been going on for approximately five years, the project history and results are not presented in adequate detail.
