Discussion:

Items 1 and 2 were discussed concurrently.

The MMG established the CBFWA Statement of Work (SOW) ad hoc Work Group which includes Tony Nigro, Dave Statler, Pete Hassemer, Mary Verner, Susan Barnes and John Palensky. The Work Group will meet December 19, 2001 from      9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to develop language for additional tasks to be included in the FY 2002 CBFWA SOW.

Discussion:

It is contemplated that the workgroup will focus on tasks necessary to develop the process for preparing an annual implementation assessment of the Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program. A description of this process would be the deliverable for the FY 2002 Contract. The first annual report from the implementation of this process would be the deliverable for the FY 2003 Contract. A detailed list of the ideas generated at this meeting including the announcement for the ad hoc work group meeting was sent to the MMG December 14.

ODFW Request for Blue Mountain Project Reconsideration

Project #199405400 Characterize the Migratory Patterns, Population Structure, Food Habits, Abundance of Bull Trout from Subbasins in the Blue Mountain Province

Action:

The MMG agreed that this project should not have been excluded from the original project solicitation. At the time it was thought to have been redundant. The MMG directed staff to forward the request to the Members for Consent Mail approval.

ITEM 4:

Recap of the NWPPC 12/11-12 Meeting (added item)

Discussion:

  • $186M budget cap - In general, the MMG thought the CBFWA Members presentation regarding BPAs $186 million budget cap went well. This issue will continue to be discussed among CBFWA, NWPPC and BPA. There was concern that Steve Wright from BPA was not present at the "round table" discussion. A memo highlighting the discussion is attached.

Action:

The MMG directed staff to draft a follow up letter to the NWPPC for their January meeting that reiterates the Councils agreement to provide "next steps" in addressing this issue.

 

FPC Board of Directors (BOD) Tony recommended a response to the Council with respect to the existing CBFWA FPC BOD, and requested this be on the next MMG agenda.

Action:

The discussion of a response to the Council regarding the NWPPCs FPC BOD Oversight Committee will be on the next MMG agenda.
