Section 2: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Original Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2007: $50,000
Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $50,000
Explanation or Additional Information: Our project collaborator, CREST, recently issued the request for proposals (RFP) for the Grays River Restoration design, survey, and implementation. The project timeline provided in the RFP indicates that final restoration design has been delayed from when originally planned in the BPA proposal stage, and is expected to be completed by June 30, 2008 (this is 60 days after the end of our FY07 contract date of 4/30/2008). Our work toward finalizing the restoration design and completion of the restoration monitoring plan is dependent upon the RFP schedule. Therefore, this work must take place during the FY08 contract period (5/1/2008 - 4/30/2009).

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?
final restoration design; restoration monitoring and assessment plan  5/1/2007  4/30/2008  5/1/2008  9/30/2008  contracting delays  $50,000  planned contracting with selected restoration firm 

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)
Eliminating FY08 tasks is not a viable alternative, as the tasks are sequenced and timed according to restrictive in-river construction timeframes.
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
Shifting FY08 tasks to FY09 is not a viable alternative, as the tasks are sequenced and timed according to restrictive in-river construction timeframes.
