Section 2: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Original Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2007: $91,501
Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $91,501
Explanation or Additional Information: I need to move 91501 dollars in unspent FY 2009 BOG funds to FY 2010 in order to complete planned work. FY 2009 BOG funds were received too late in the year to fully utilize. The FY 2009 budget including BOG funds was 412729 dollars while the FY 2010 budget allocation was $431,247 dollars. Adding the unspent FY 2009 funds to the extant FY 2010 budget will increase the FY2010 budget allocation to $522,748 dollars.

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?
Conduct HEP surveys to determine the numberof HUs to credit BPA  10/1/2008  9/30/2009  10/1/2009  9/30/2010  Received BOG funds too late in the year to complete planned work.  $91,501  We have a new field season to complete work starting in May 2010 

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)
Cannot reduce the scope of the project. Determining the number of remaining habitat units is a critical function for crediting purposes.
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
Cannot defer HEP work without exacerbating the situation. The number of HEP evaluations needed continues to increase annually.
