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:

Technical Issue: Concern that the costs are excessive to achieve the O&M objectives. Technically, it is important to maintain the past investments, but within reasonable cost.

Technical Issue: Need to describe the management strategies, objectives, and tasks that may have changed since FY98.

Technical Issue: Address the fact that the objectives do not indicate doing new work, yet the narrative describes new fence (which is not shown in the materials budget).

Technical Issue: Also – need to expand the monitoring to address cover the adaptive management discussed in the proposal.


Recommendation:
Fund
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Increase due to availability of increased FEMA funding
Recommendation:
Adequate after revision
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The revised proposal placed an emphasis on soft engineering and wider buffers to protect a 50-year floodplain. Comments on the original proposal (before revision) suggested that results should be measured in terms of fish and their life histories. In addition, the project history was insufficiently described, methods were vague, administration costs were high, the core purpose was not expressed well, and site-specific projects and watershed analysis were not described. However, these shortcomings were substantially improved in the revised proposal.
