Independent Scientific Review Panel Final Review (August 31, 2006) [Download full document]

Recommendation: Not fundable
NPCC Comments: The proposal did not include any narrative except to describe agreements and administrative processes and the response likewise did not constitute an actual proposal. Nevertheless, they pulled the cost of acquiring wildlife habitat out of the budget and are now asking for funds to perform O&M at existing sites and to pursue opportunities for future acquisitions. The response does not provide enough information to evaluate the scientific merit of the project.

The sponsors state that past funding provided for a wide variety of habitat protection and enhancement activities and that assessment of habitat improvement activities is being quantified. In addition they note that long-term management plans are being prepared in cooperation with other agencies. Reviewers are told, "detailed description of the activities can be found in project annual reports and work plans submitted to BPA." A comprehensive summary and evaluation of past accomplishments in terms of benefits to fish and wildlife would be a useful basis for the sponsors to begin formulating a future proposal should they choose to do so.

Recommendation: Not fundable
NPCC Comments: No narrative information is provided as a basis for evaluation. The goal is to acquire and manage land, but the entire budget is in personnel.
