Section 2: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Original Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2007: $500,000
Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $539,111
Explanation or Additional Information: Proposed FY07 budget of 500k was for Step 2 process. However, Step 1 has taken much longer than anticipated. FY06 budget for master planning was $400,000, most of which has been used.

Technically, we should have rescheduled $160,250 from FY06 to FY07 for change orders. Now that FY07 is past, I don't know that any action is necessary and will defer to the BOG on what to do with those funds.

$10,000 has been added to the contract in FY08 and I expect they'll need additional funds to complete the master plan, so I am requesting that the remainder of the $400,000 be rescheduled into FY08, for a total of $39,111.

Several factors have delayed the master plan, including a new fisheries manager with the Warm Springs Tribe, family illnesses, new research findings, and the usual human errors and failings.

Section 3: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Activity Description Original Start Date Original End Date New Start Date New End Date Condition/Situation Creating the Need to Reschedule Cost What Will Enable the Work to be Achieved Now?
Complete revised Master Plan for Hood River Production Plan  2/6/2006  12/31/2006  2/6/2006  5/31/2008  Continued changes in direction for the program, inlcuding a need to reevaluate the safety of Parkdale Fish Facility in light of flooding in Nov 2006.  $39,111  Work has been ongoing. Co-managers are in agreement as to future direction. 
Step 2 of the Master Planning process, including environmental work and final design/specs.  10/1/2007  9/30/2008  6/1/2008  12/31/2009  Master Plan not completed yet, cannot go to Step 2 until it is done.  $500,000  Work will proceed after Master Plan has been approved by Council & BPA. 

Please explain why the following alternative funding solutions are not feasible and would jeopardize the project:
Reducing existing scope of project
(i.e., eliminating some activities planned for FY 2008 to accommodate the FY 2007 activities)
We can't have a partial master plan - it is what it is.
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
Schedule is already WAY behind. We need to get a new plan and new traps in place before Powerdale Dam, where all trapping and broodstock collection occurs, is removed in 2010.
