Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: The Clearwater Focus Program is not a direct implementation project, consequently biological outcomes are not a direct function of the funding requested. The program provides the structure for administration, policy development, program and project planning, inter-agency cooperation and evaluation throughout the subbasin to coordinate projects designed to improve or enhance fish and wildlife habitat. Actions coordinated by the Clearwater Focus Program will compile and analyze data to identify population distributions, connectivity, habitat diversity, condition, and connectivity, and factors limiting fish production and survival. This assessment will provide the basis of future implementation projects and define the desired biological outcomes.
Biological Data: Fish and wildlife data for indicator species and habitat and water quality data are being assembled for the subbasin-wide assessment. All data is public information having been collected during projects funded by state and/or federal agencies conducted by agency staff, tribal staff, and/or private individuals.

FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 95,000
% change from forecast 50.6%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The budget change reflects the Clearwater Focus Program use of a subcontractor for completing analysis for the subbasin-wide assessment, work on the regional planning process, and M&E design.


Reason for change in scope

The change in scope from FY1999 reflects the Focus Program's response to ISRP analysis for Fiscal Years 1998 and 1999 and anticipated changes in the FWP from the NPPC's amendment process. The Focus Program has initiated the subbasin-wide assessment, regional planning and design of a M&E program with policy direction and decision-making from the Clearwater Policy Advisory Committee. These components were articulated in the FY2000 response to ISRP and were the basis of the ISRP then recommending funding. The FY2000 contract scope modification to include this work was approved by the NPPC on 5 April 2000. The FY2001 proposal is a continuation of the modified contract.

The budget change reflects the Clearwater Focus Program use of a subcontractor ($50,000) for completing analysis for the subbasin-wide assessment, work on the regional planning process, and M&E design. This activity was added to this contract by amendment of FY 1999 contracts within the Clearwater Focus Program on April 5, 2000.

The change in scope from FY1999 reflects the Focus Program's response to ISRP analysis for Fiscal Years 1998 and 1999 and anticipated changes in the FWP from the NWPPC's amendment process.
