Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: Weather is the major constraint on operations. Winter conditions can inhibit access over primitive roads or in stream channels. The length of the season for propagating vegetation is limited by duration of soil moisture.

Comment:

Technical Issue: Clearly describe how the objectives in FY99 differ from FY98.

Technical Issue: Explain how the staffing level is not excessive to achieve the objectives.

Technical Issue: Too similar to the original FY98 proposal – need to provide the additional information that was provided in FY98, plus an explanation of new work in FY99 resulting from FY98 funding.

Comment:

This is a well-written proposal--good balance of concepts and details. The proposal describes a well-planned project, with significant progress already. The watershed-scale conceptual foundation is excellent. It is well integrated with other projects. Minor criticisms include a failure to give details on the personnel. The technical background could be described better.
