Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: It is impossible to identify all constraints and problems that may occur. While we will make every attempt to stay on schedule, unforseen assignments, bad weather, equipment failure, etc. will delay progress.

Comment:

Technical Issue: Basically the same as the FY98 proposal – need to provide an explanation of work that was funded in FY98 plus new work in FY99 dependent on FY98 funding.

Technical Issue: Proposal needs significant modification to clearly describe how the techniques are valid and appropriate to achieve the objectives, and the specific fish and wildlife benefit.


Recommendation:
Fundable

Comment:

Presentation: This is a pilot project to facilitate work in other tributaries and coordinate assessments and implementation throughout the Pend Oreille subbasin. It is complimentary to the Kalispel Resident Fish Project (9500100) in that it focuses on upland areas while 9500100 focuses on riparian areas. Sedimentation could be a limiting factor. The project promotes grass roots communication and networking between landowners, private parties, the Forest Service, and WDFW. Through this communication, costs-sharing is part of the project development.

Questions/Answers:

What on-the-ground work will be conducted? Answer: We are currently doing the leg-work and contacting and coordinating with the land owners.

What are the target species? Answer: Bull trout and cutthroat trout. The project focuses on the upland where problems start instead of on the streams where problems show up.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes

Programmatic Criteria: Yes

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

Comment:

This is a proposal to fund a watershed analysis, but it does not provide adequate technical justification for the work. There is little description of methods or monitoring. The proposed analysis appears to be a good idea, but the proposal does not ensure that it will be done well.
