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:

Technical Issue: The WTWG understands the merit of promoting greenhouses in these areas, for site-specific plant propagation and the related cost-effectiveness, and they understand the overall watershed benefits from native plants, but request that the sponsor identify information that indicates that fish and wildlife benefit more from native plants.

Management Issue: Management note – consider if there is an "in-lieu" issue associated with the personnel and indirect costs.


Recommendation:
Do Not Fund
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).

Budget constraints. Proposal was found to be technically sound and appropriate but was deferred because other work was judged more urgent and funds were not adequate for all needed work.


Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This proposal is for a practical and simple goal, increasing use of native plant species in restoration projects. The goal is to grow about ten species of native plants. Methods for accomplishing the work are not well developed. Propagation methods should maximize genetic diversity within each species, but methods to achieve this are not detailed in the proposal. The proposal does not describe long-term plans for where plants will be propagated and grown. The proposal also does not list the projects that this project will service; thus, it also does not demonstrate the need to plant the plants. BPA should examine whether sites to be revegetated should be funded by BPA.
