Section 2: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Original Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2007: $51,400
Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $51,400
Explanation or Additional Information: Due to administrative processes w/in BPA, the Potlatch River Watershed Restoration project (contract 35708) was unable to accomplish certain field projects. This was the first year of on-the-ground work for this project. They had $51,400 un-contracted (in reserve) for EC sub-contracting. Had BPA given better direction/guidance for the process of EC sub-contracting, this would have allowed for cultural surveys to be accomplished so that all work elements could have been completed. Because of the confusion and misunderstanding of BPA process, Bonneville proposes to reschedule this funding into the FY08 contract (CR-96205). Approved FY2008 Start of Year Budget: $397,486 Approved changes (add from FY07 contract): $51,400 TOTAL FY08 budget amount: $448,486

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?
Cultural Resources   9/1/2007  8/31/2008  9/1/2008  8/31/2009  Misunderstanding of BPA process  $51,400  future cultural sub-contracts  

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)
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
