Section 7. Abstract


Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

ISRP Preliminary Review , ISRP 99-2 Recommendation:
Delay Funding
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Recommendation: Delay funding until the authors justify why this should not be covered under indirect costs from other proposals in project 20510. The set of proposals needs to be reorganized to explicitly address the two stated objectives to test supplementation and to provide a harvestable surplus.

Comments: This proposal emphasizes the process of adaptive management but does not identify the specific experiments that are being tested, the management response that has/will be made, or the criteria that will be used to determine if management changes are needed. This proposal is a description of the current bureaucratic structure. It does not discuss the need or problem solved by this structure. It is awkward to review the management portion of supplementation as a distinct subproposal. The staff proposed for this work have primarily technical expertise associated with data analysis or hatcheries. There seems to be little ecological expertise represented.

Like most of the other projects in this group, this proposal provided only minimal background or technical detail on the fishery problems that it was to address. These had to be inferred by reading other proposals within this group or relying on the reviewer's previous knowledge. The technical background on the need for project management and decision making was logical but lacked any citations or documentation. The major criticism of this proposal is that it is not clear how success will be measured. The proposal has an adequate description of the progress reports and planning documents that are produced, but it defines success by "effective participation" without any elaboration on what that means. Why aren't these activities covered by the indirect costs?

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Aug 20, 1999

CBFWA: Nonwatershed Technical Group Comments Recommendation:
Aug 20, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Technical Criteria 1: Met? no - The budget breakdown and justification section needs to be greatly expanded and many more details included for a project proposal of this size and scope

Programmatic Criteria 2: Met? yes - Doesn't seem to belong in program.

Milestone Criteria 3: Met? yes -

Resource Criteria 4: Met? yes -

CBFWA: Subregional Team Comments Recommendation:
Aug 20, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Should some of this manpower be provided as standard operating costs for the agency. There appears to be duplication of policy and technical tasks within FYKP with YIN and WDFW. The duplication of effort should be reduced as the project continues to progress.

ISRP Final Review , ISRP 99-4 Recommendation:
Oct 29, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Fund at appropriate interim level to maintain the basic program until province level review. See programmatic recommendation and comments in project 8811525.

NWPPC Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Fund existing activities
Nov 8, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]

NWPPC Funding Recommendation , NWPPC 2000-6 Recommendation:
Mar 1, 2000
[Decision made in 11-3-99 Council Meeting]; Address ISRP comments in BPA contract
