Section 2: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Original Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2007: $78,474
Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $64,474
Explanation or Additional Information: Construction of the MVID East project was delayed at the request of the project sponsor and BPA to incorporate a value engineering review process and modify the Reclamation design as indicated.

VE process has been completed. Modifications to the Reclamation engineering design are being completed by HDR as a subcontractor to Reclamation. Final project design scheduled for completion too late in the contract period to allow for construction. Funds retained in current contract are necessary for coordination of design review, permitting compliance, stakeholder review, and administrative tasks.

Construction budget requested for reschedule will be included into the detailed line item budget upon approval of request by Budget Oversight Group.

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?
Remove existing diversion structure  9/19/2008  4/30/2009  6/30/2009  6/30/2010  Additional design constraints identified through VE process requested by BPA and project sponsor  $64,474  Revised engineering has been developed through a coordinated process with input from permitting and funding entities. 

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)
The value engineering process was selected by BPA as a necessary step prior to project implementation. Insufficient time remains to complete any construction during the current contract period. Administrative and engineering/coordination tasks must be completed to ensure a competent design for construction in the next contracting period.
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
As stated above, all construction elements are being shifted to the next scheduled contract period. All coordination, EC, permitting tasks need to be completed during this period to meet construction schedule proposed start date September 1, 2009.
