Biological Outcomes of this project: With the exception of Project habitat tasks, no specific biological outcomes are expected from the management and other activities proposed herein. However, the work detailed below is critical to the success of YKFP operations throughout the Yakima basin. Habitat refugia protection and restoration tasks are expected to preserve and increase habitat quality and quantity throughout the Yakima and Klickitat basins. Data management tasks will assist in resolving biological uncertainties throughout the Columbia basin.
Biological Data: Biological outcomes of related Project tasks are identified in the YKFP's M & E proposal #199506325. EDT modeling utilizes information gathered by the Project, which will assist YKFP managers in deciding the direction and scope of future activities.

Reason for change in estimated budget

Additional costs were created by the transfer of data management functions from the YKFP's M & E proposal (see above) to this proposal. In addition, Project support personnel have been consolidated in this proposal. Consequently, the M & E and O & M proposals have been reduced accordingly. Finally, Habitat Coordinator tasks have been fully implemented and incorporated in this proposal.


Reason for change in scope

See above.

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
$1,141,232
Comment:
The additional costs were created by the transfer of data management functions from the YKFP's M&E proposal (199506325) to this proposal. In addition, Project support personnel have been consolidated in this proposal. Consequently, the M&E and O&M (199701325) proposals have been reduced accordingly. Finally, Habitat Coordinator tasks have been fully implemented and incorporated in this proposal. The WA SRT is unable to provide a comprehensive review of this program using the project proposals submitted for BPA funding. A technical review should be performed in coordination with the annual program review currently being provided by YKFP.

BPA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Reducing funding request for fy01 by 10%
Date:
Sep 8, 2000
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:

Recommendation: The CBFWA comments recommended a technical review be performed of this proposal during the Project Annual Review. We agree and would also suggest that the proposal/project be reviewed as part of a Council Step Review of the YKFP. Funding for this project in FY 2001: $1,000,000.

Background: This proposal has three initiatives (objectives):

  1. Support YN Management/Policy activities related to YKFP
  2. Design, Develop and Maintain YKFP Data and Information Systems
  3. Coordinate participation in water and habitat planning/development initiatives by various agencies, groups and committees.
The FY 2001 request is for $1,141,232. The FY 2000 request was for $750,000. Based on FY 2000 analysis of end of year un-obligated balances, there is a balance of $100,000. This balance could be either returned to the Anadromous Fish Placeholder or retained and credited toward a Council approved budget for 2001. (See explanation below). The recommended funding level for this proposal in FY 2001 is $1,000,000.

The reorganization of the activities described in the proposal correctly presents the work planned under this proposal. The proposal covers all the major management oversight by the Yakama Nation of the YKFP.

The data management initiative is an evolving and major function of the management of the YKFP. The investment in this aspect of the YKFP's activities is appropriate and deserves the highest priority. Collecting and distributing data is a major task of the YKFP. This initiative is the heart of this work.

The coordination of habitat planning into the YKFP occurred during the past year. The move is appropriate because it brings under the Policy Groups overview all the habitat initiatives that are undertaken in support of the fisheries resource. Note, the actual habitat projects are not included in this initiative. These projects are proposed and funded as stand-alone projects. BPA project managers coordinate on these projects and track their accomplishments through the YKFP Policy Group.

As part of the budget analysis for the renewal for this project for FY2000, $100,000 is being recommended for returned the Anadromous Fish Placeholder. This amount reflected a contract balance at the end of the budget year of about $100,000. In looking at the expanded scope of the project and taking into consideration the reorganization of activities reflected in the proposal, it is our recommendation that the funding request for FY 2001 be reduced by ten percent, or $140,000, for a total of $1,000,000.
