Reviews and Recommendations

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

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Ongoing Funding: yes; New Funding: no
Date:
Jul 14, 2000
2001
$2,295,433
Comment:
The increase in this budget is due to cost of living increases. There is no change in scope of work. The information provided in the proposal is confusing, since the cost of the project increased even though the price of PIT tags decreased.

BPA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Date:
Sep 8, 2000
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
CBFWA comment: The increase in this budget is due to cost of living increases. There is no change in scope of work. The information provided in the proposal is confusing, since the cost of the project increased even though the price of PIT tags decreased.

BPA response: Funding support for project 198712700 is accomplished through 3 BPA contracts. Two contracts are administered under project 198712700 (PSMFC and USFWS) and one under project 199008001. The PSMFC administered contract under Project 198712700 supports the multi-year SMP effort sponsored by the Fish Passage Center (FPC), representing the Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Columbia Basin Tribes. Funding of PIT tags and other fish marking support services for project 198712700 is provided through a separate BPA contract to PSMFC under project 199008001 and a separate contract to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under project 198712700. All program funds are allocated to project 1987127000 initially and then the costs for PIT tags are transferred to and obligated under 199008001.

The estimated FY2001 funding requirement of $2,295,433 is essentially the same level of funding made available for the same scope of work in FY2000. The budget for the 198712700 PSMFC FY2000 contract, totaling $2,066,036, was adjusted for $400,000 carry-over so only $1,666,036 in FY2000 funding was obligated. 198712700 USFWS contract obligated $44,017. $174,720 was obligated under 199008001 for purchase of 72,800 PIT tags.

 

Funding Support Provided for Project 198712700 Work FY2000 Funding Allocation Recommended for Project 198712700 Work FY2001
PSMFC Contract $2,066,036* $2,295,433
USFWS Contract 44,017
PIT Tag Costs @ $2.40 per tag $174,720
$2,284,773

* $2,066,036 funding requirement was adjusted for $400,000 carry-over so only $1,666,036 additional funding authority from FY2000 funds was awarded.
