Reason for change in estimated budget

In previous years, our understanding of the CBFWA form instructions was that the out-year budget projections were for the operations & maintenance portion of the projects only. For the John Day Watershed Restoration program, all O&M costs have been borne by the landowner or BOR, under a formal agreement, as their cost-share portion of the project. Consequently, we have not requested funds for O&M and did not project them on the annual project solicitation form. For internal planning, we do calculate annual costs for the other phases. Although not listed in previous funding requests, the planning/design and monitoring costs have, in fact, increased considerably in the last two years, while construction costs have only been adjusted for minor changes in market conditions. Planning and design costs have escalated due to a number of factors including the loss of two cost-share contracts that directed, under the NPPC program, the BOR to fund the administrative portion of this program.


Reason for change in scope

The BPA, NMFS, and USFWS are requiring a much more extensive planning, design, consultation, and monitoring phases to these projects than in the past. The nature and extent of filings required with these agencies requires much more attention to project procedural specifics and less to the actual implementation. Consequently, we spend more time with the planning and evaluation of the projects than with the actual construction. The additional administrative and regulatory demands placed upon the JDBO and GSWCD requires correlative increases in staff time, supplies, travel, and other overhead expenses. However, even with these increasing procedural obligations, the John Day interagency team has still proposed to complete the same or similar number of individual projects (objectives) within the original program authorized under the NPPC program and BOR/interagency team comprehensive watershed analysis.
