Comment:

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Incomplete: Participation in a scientific process should not merely be to "critique". The proposal should demonstrate a more positive relationship to the success of PATH. Appears to duplicate Project # 9700200

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Incomplete: Unable to determine from the proposal

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Incomplete Unable to determine from the proposal

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Yes


Recommendation:
Do Not Fund

Credit against 9700200
Recommendation:
Inadequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This was a poorly written proposal and ranked near the bottom of the set in scientific quality. The proposal should stand alone and describe what PATH is. The proposed work should be better related to the Fish and Wildlife Program and other plans. The objectives are vague in relation to specific PATH tasks and no tasks are given for objective 3. It is not clear why there is a need for a separate proposal and funding when the principal investigator is already involved with PATH and other projects that receive funds for it. The scientific quality of the proposal does not warrant additional funding.
