Contract Description:
CCR 29147 is a no cost contract modification required due to delays in acquiring access/right of way  permit from the BLM, and appropriate scenic and wildlife river permit(s) from the state for the Wallowa River array, WE I.   This is only a change is schedule.   Installation may occur as early as February 2013 if permits can be secured.  If permits cannot be secured prior to this date, then in-water installation of the array will have to wait until river flows drop in early August with planned installation completed by the end of August, or early September.  The proposed new end date for this CCR is September 20, 3013, ensuring adequate time to test and accept the array by the end of the contract..  

CCR 28667 is a no cost contract modification for the purpose of clarifying the actions described in CCR 26276. Briefly, CCR 26276 identified a site in the upper Grande Ronde River and a site in the Wallowa River for placement of a single-span PIT tag array (one at each site). These two upstream sites were selected to replace the tandem PIT tag array originally proposed for the lower Grande Ronde River. CCR 28667 clarifies the prior CCR by breaking Work Element F into two Work Elements; one describing the PIT tag array installation in the upper Grande Ronde (Work Element F), and Work Element I describing the installation of a PIT tag array in the Wallowa River. Additionally, language is included to document the obsolescence of Work Element H; which originally proposed installation of a tandem PIT tag array in the Lower Grande Ronde River.

CCR 26276 is a no cost contract modification that includes the following elements:
1. Inclusion of a new Work Element (H) that identifies alternative PIT tag array locations in the upper Grande Ronde River and Wallowa River. Briefly, the originally proposed PIT tag array sites on the lower mainstem Grande Ronde River described in Work Element F may ultimately prove infeasible with existing PIT tag array technology. The FCRPS BiOp workgroup is considering the tradeoffs between the sites described in Work Elements H and F. Once a final set of locations has been selected by the workgroup, either Work Element H or F will be deleted.
2. The original contract included errors in two stream names that have been fixed.
3. The contract end date has been extended from 5/25/2012 to 01/31/2013 in order to facilitate permitting and enable additional opportunities for installation of PIT tag arrays in the Grande Ronde and upper Salmon River.

Notes Accompanying CR-199943:

Under the fast track proposal process, Biomark was identified to conduct site selection, design, construction, and installation activities for eight new passive integrated transponder (PIT) tag arrays. This work has been divided into two performance periods; the initial contract issued in June 2010 in the amount of $1,070,964.00 and a second performance period in the amount of $806,930.00 that was initially planned to be awarded in September of 2011. Biomark has completed the work associated with the initial performance period ahead of schedule. This Contract (CR-199943) is to enable Biomark to continue tasks needed under the project utilizing FY 2011 funds. C-199943 enables Biomark to continue to meet the originally proposed project deliverables ahead of schedule.


Background:
Since its inception in FY2003, Project #2003-017-00 (the Integrated Status and Effectiveness Monitoring Program; ISEMP) has been developing two novel monitoring and evaluation programs: (i) subbasin-scale pilot status and trend monitoring efforts for anadromous salmonids and their habitat in the Wenatchee/Entiat, John Day and South Fork Salmon River basins, and (ii) effectiveness monitoring for suites of habitat restoration projects in selected watersheds within the three target subbasins. This work - critical for implementing the 2000 NMFS FCRPS Biological Opinion (RPA Actions 180, 181, and 183) (BiOp) and UPAs from the 2004 BiOp - builds on current status and trend monitoring programs within each of these basins. Several regional and local organizations are funding and implementing these programs. In short, this project has integrated existing and new monitoring and evaluation activities in three pilot subbasins to help ensure that provisions of the BiOp are satisfied. This contract is one of several contracts that will implement this project. The final report for this contract will contain data that will 1) be submitted to NOAA Fisheries (also a contractor under this project) for use in a project level integrated Annual Report and 2) be submitted to BPA as a contract final report according to the terms of this contract.  

The Salmon portion of the ISEMP project began in 2005 with the completion of a study design (http://www.nwfsc.noaa.gov/research/divisions/cbd/mathbio/isemp/docs_salmon.cfm#2005), which received a positive review by the Independent Scientific Review Panel in 2006 (ISRP 2006-1; http://www.nwfsc.noaa.gov/research/divisions/cbd/mathbio/isemp/docs_salmon.cfm#2005). Implementation of the ISEMP project in the Salmon subbasin was funded in FY2008, and commenced on-the-ground actions in FY2009. This contract funds Biomark to construct and install extended length instream PIT tag array systems in the lower Imnaha River, Joseph Creek, lower Grande Ronde River, and mainstem upper Salmon River.  These arrays include construction and installation of arrays identified under the FAST TRACK RM&E review process based on decisions by ISEMP's overall project manager Chris Jordan in coordination with Chris Beasley, ISEMP's Salmon River  project manager.

[Note:  Jody White and Chris Beasley will serve in their respective roles (see contact) and are fully funded under contract 45428.]
