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
$108,754
Comment:
An increase is anticipated in Personnel, Operations, and Travel costs. There is no change in the scope of work. An increase in the budget is due to cost of living allowances. Last year's budget was reduced due to budget restrictions. All FY 2000 tasks and objectives were supported by the SRT and the ISRP.

NWPPC Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Fund
Date:
Sep 13, 2000
2001
$ 50,000
Comment:
Rationale: Budget increase inappropriate in this review. Project has full balance of $50,000 uncontracted from 2000. Check ability to initiate.
