Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $458,924

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?
Completion of conservation easement  12/1/2007  11/30/2008  12/1/2008  11/30/2009  Significant delays in appraisal, appraisal review, appraisal revisions and cost share submissions  $00  The appraisal revisions will be finalized and the cost share contributions will be submitted. 

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)
This is an internal BPA contract created with funds from the FY 08 project expense allocation. Reducing the 08 scope would forfeit the majority of the easement funds, resulting in a complete loss of the conservation easement.
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
A re-schedule of funds from 08 to 09 is the only way the conservation easement can be secured.
