October Contract Change Request Justification/description of change......

This contract change request (CCR) was initiated in October, 2007, to complete tasks that are part of the original project statement of work but that will require 30 days longer than expected to complete.  In addition, allowing the contract to extend for 13 months, rather than the initial planned 12 months, places the contract cycle a month further from the Federal Fiscal Year boundary, a situation that will greatly facilitate NOAA-Fisheries ability to complete budgeting and invoicing tasks at this point in the FY.  Specific work elements that are affected by this change request are WE/Tasks N, P and U.  Task N -- reporting -- will need to be finalized after tasks P and U are completed.  Task P was initiated after the June, 2007 CCR was finalized.  At that point, NOAA Fisheries initiated a sub-contracting process to engage a specific vendor to assist with the task -- this contracting process was delayed due to the late passage of the Federal 2007 Budget, so work on this task did not begin on schedule as planned in the June, 2007 CCR.  An additional one month in the performance period for this task will allow the successful completion of the tasks specified in the subcontracted statement of work.  In addition, Task U, the development of Environmental Compliance documents, has been extended to allow for the completing of EC documents for planned FY08 work.  The completion of these documents has been delayed due to a slow response from one of the cooperators (Bureau of Land Management), but now that the communication issues have been resolved, progress on this task has resumed, albeit slightly behind schedule.  No additional costs will be incurred as a result of this contract change request.

June Contract Change Request Justification/description of change......

This contract change request (CCR) was initiated in June, 2007, to complete tasks initially proposed, but removed for budgetary reasons.  In particular, five Work Elements/Tasks (P - T), have been added to address data management functionality and the development of novel monitoring indicators and approaches in the pilot watersheds.  The data management tasks concern refinements to the Automated Template Modules (ATMs) (specially developed Microsoft Access databases) developed to facilitate data transfer between data generators and the project databank.  These tasks reflect increased functionality of ATMs, additional metrics and metadata coverage by ATMs and the testing of the Protocol Manager jointly developed with the USBoR.  The novel monitoring work involves the completion of a task initiated in a previous contract to develop a "fish food" metric from standard approaches to macro-invertebrate sampling and the addition of PIT tag detection capability within the Wenatchee/Entiat consistent with ISEMP's focus on developing protocols and documenting process as a critical component of implementation.  Note that the budget for the sub-contract (see budge line-item for subcontractor tab) for added work on ATM's and a copy of the SOW for sub-contract are attached to this SOW.

This project seeks to develop two novel monitoring and evaluation programs: (i) subbasin-scale pilot status and trend monitoring efforts for anadromous salmonids and their habitat in the Wenatchee, John Day and Salmon River basins, and (ii) effectiveness monitoring for suites of habitat restoration projects in selected watersheds within the three target subbasins.  This work builds on current status and trend monitoring programs within each of these basins; however, the proposed work differs structurally from much of the ongoing status and trend monitoring work as it focuses on the explicit development and testing of the sampling protocols and methodologies required for generating habitat and population monitoring data of known spatio-temporal resolution, accuracy and precision.  The proposed work expands on the utility of status monitoring data to explicitly address watershed-scale questions of habitat restoration action effectiveness.  The ultimate objective of the project is to develop an end-to-end data gathering to analysis system that supports tributary habitat off-site mitigation actions.

This contract's specific portion of the entire project (2003-017-00) will address overall coordination tasks.  The overall technical and scientific coordination of the project will be accomplished by the project sponsor (NMFS/NWFSC, Dr. Chris Jordan) through this contract.  This contract will also cover the initial coordination, scoping and design work necessary to initiate the pilot projects in the Salmon and John Day River basins.  Once these basin level projects are fully defined, they will be independently and directly contracted as components of the overall ISEMP program.  

This contract will also cover three additional technical coordination tasks: data collation to support initial design and scoping, data management system design and development, and statistical support for project data analysis.  These tasks fall under the overarching heading of technical project management, and are identified as individual tasks as they will be accomplished through a variety of subcontracting vehicles initiated by the project sponsor.

To support the design of monitoring and restoration actions it will be necessary to develop data sets that represent the status of the populations in question as well as the status of the landscape that contains these populations.  The landscape that supports a population consists of the physical and biological components of stream and riparian habitat, the suite of current and recent past management activities such as restoration projects and land use actions, and the broad characteristics of the watershed and upland area as a whole.  This contract will cover the compilation of the data layers necessary to construct this landscape status as well as the development of the tools to manage and analyze these data layers.  

To develop the design of monitoring and restoration actions this contract will contain work elements, tasks and deliverables specific to the generation of technically sound plans of action for the Salmon and John Day portions of the overall project.  These tasks involve the design and writing of plans for monitoring and restoration actions in these watersheds that will be subject to technical review and revision.  These tasks also will result in implementation plans, timelines and budgets that are based on the reviewed and revised technical plans.
