Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The new facility at John Day not being ready in time could delay start up of sampling at that site. Any mechanical falilure of sampling equipment can delay sampling.

Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

While reviewers endorse the purpose of the study, they comment that it does not adequately relate the intended work to other smolt monitoring projects or to the basinwide Fish and Wildlife Program. Further, the proposal neglects to correlate how numbers of smolt are to be related to recovery. Methods for data collection and monitoring are inadequate. Reviewers note the significant budget assigned to subcontractors, and suggest that these figures be reviewed by an appropriate oversight agency.
