Contract Description:
AMENDMENT 02/104/2013:  This contract is being amended to add WE N:162: Develop models of information and learning flow to support the completion of a sub-contract with Oregon State University for Sociological Data Analysis.  The total value of the change in budget is $50,000.  These funds are being de-obligated from Project 2003-017-00 Contract 46273 NOAA Fisheries Coordination Project Design.  The effective date for this amendment is 3-1-2013.

Contract Description: The Integrated Status and Effectiveness Monitoring Program (ISEMP, 2003-017-00) is an ongoing collaborative effort to design, test, implement and evaluate Status and Trends Monitoring for salmon and steelhead populations and their habitat, and watershed-scale Effectiveness Monitoring for management actions impacting salmon and steelhead populations and habitat in the Interior Columbia River Basin.

ISEMP explicitly addresses work requirements of many 2008 FCRPS Biological Opinion RPAs (56.1, 56.2, 56.3, 57.1, 57.2, 57.3, 57.4, 57.5) and is directly related to additional 2008 FCRPS Biological Opinion implementation strategy requirements and recommendations. ISEMP takes a pilot-project approach to the research and development of monitoring by implementing experimental programs in several major subbasins of the Interior Columbia: the Wenatchee, Entiat, Methow, John Day, South Fork Salmon and Lemhi River basins. The overall goal of the project is to provide regional salmon management agencies with the data, information and tools necessary to design efficient and effective monitoring programs.

Specifically, ISEMP generates quantitative guidance on and examples of: the robustness and limitations of population and habitat monitoring protocols, indicators and metrics; sampling design approaches for the distribution of monitoring effort in time and space; analytical approaches to the evaluation of monitoring data, information and programs; effective data management and communication designs that support the use, standardization and compilation of implementation, compliance, status, trends and effectiveness monitoring data by regional data generators and decision makers; and finally the design and implementation of watershed-scale restoration actions to maximize both the biological impact and associated learning opportunities resulting from the design and implementation strategy.

Through its work to date, ISEMP has developed expertise in the coordination and implementation of large-scale monitoring data collection programs. Applying this experience, ISEMP coordinates the installation, maintenance and calibration of in-stream PIT tag arrays across the Snake River basin and is designing and coordinating the implementation of a Columbia River basin-wide stream habitat status and trends monitoring. These programmatic implementation facets of ISEMP leverage previous experience with logistics and social factors to effectively implement comprehensive, standardized monitoring research and development at an unprecedented scale.  

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.  Terraqua's role has been, and continues to be, to enable the Bonneville Power Administration to continue to implement Project #2003-017-00 in the Wenatchee and Entiat and other pilot subbasins. Objectives of this work have been, and continue to be:

In 2012,

- Coordinate contract development between Bonneville and entities participating in implementation of the ISEMP program in the Wenatchee/Entiat and other pilot subbasins.

- Coordinate contract implementation between Bonneville and entities participating in the ISEMP program in the Wenatchee/Entiat and other pilot subbasins to ensure that implementation activities meet the purpose and needs of the ISEMP program.

- Implement selected monitoring and analysis activities.

- Analyze and report results related to the implementation of monitoring activities.

However, for FY12 Terraqua has removed some tasks and reduced the scope of other tasks that were included in Release#6 to fit the scope of work with the level of funding for FY12:
1)  Implementation Strategy Updates and Protocol development is not funded for FY12;
2)  The scope of some coordination and reporting elements that were more prominent in earlier releases has been reduced, e.g., WE E 13.4: Pilot Subbasin Coordination: this effort has been reduced by 25%, and WE D 13.2 Program Reporting has been reduced by 50%
3) The scope of work for WE J 13.10 UC Status and Trend Fish Monitoring: this effort has been reduced by 27%.
