Schedule Constraints: Adverse weather conditions could delay some of the on-site work at the projects. Inability of manufacturer to produce portable reader would affect schedule; this is not anticipated.

Comment:

ISRP reviewers appreciate the need to change from an interrogation system based on 400 kHz frequency to one based on 134.2 kHz frequency. Nevertheless, they considered that this proposal can benefit from expanded description. The budget only includes capital acquisitions or improvements without detail on the overall cost/benefits. They suggest that the proposal should ensure that the needs of all user groups will be satisfied.
