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:

Management Issue: Describe why a permanent fence (which is more cost effective in the long term) is not being used. Need description of the annual cost savings of annual re-wiring due to the posts now being in place.

Management Issue: Need to address whether a less structural approach, such as removing the grazing, would be more cost effective.

Technical Issue: Need to describe the habitat response or other benefits from this fence.

Management Issue: Potential in-lieu issue (Is the need for the work caused by inadequate federal management?).

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

Comment:

The revisions do not significantly change the original proposal. The original proposal falls into unacceptable level because of insignificant description and little justification. However, the purposes appear worthwhile.
