Section 2: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Original Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2007: $229,648
Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $229,648
Explanation or Additional Information: Based on preliminary interaction with WDFW and Bonneville staffs, the Council staff recommends that the initial contracting for this proposal address only the work elements necessary to accomplish the inventory and assessment as requested by the ISRP. Based on the council's recommendations the original budget request did not include implementation. Because the hiring of a person to manage and administer this project took longer than expected the full contract amount was not expended. This request is to reschedule the unused portion of the FY 07 budget allotment $48,735 to the FY 08 contract for continued inventory and assessment activities. The second portion of this request is to reschedule the remaining portion ($180,913) of the original council and BPA recommended funding for FY 07 ($308,000) to FY 09. As mentioned above the council required inventory and assessment to be completed before they would fund implementation. These funds will be used for the implementation of pump screen corrections.

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?
For FY 08 the activities will include items identified in Work Elements 157,114, and 115.   8/15/2007  8/14/2008  9/15/2008  9/14/2009  For FY 08 the length of time it took to recruit and hire a person for this position complete the assessment and inventory before they would fund implementation.   $48,735  The work already accomplished will enable this project to start the on the ground implementation of pump screening. 
For FY 09 the activities will include the on the ground implementation of pump screens, WE 69  8/15/2007  8/14/2008  9/15/2009  9/14/2010  For FY 09 the requirement of the ISRP to complete the assessment and inventory before they would fund implementation.   $180,913  The program will be established and should be able to screen a larger number of pump diversions. 

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)
It is expected that the project will be able to start implementation during FY 08, reducing the amount of inventories, assessments, and screening will only extend the work into future years where costs may increase and fish will be at risk.
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
There is no advantages to extending this project into out years as it will only increase costs and leave ESA listed fish at risk of injury or mortality.
