Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Not Applicable
Final Round ISRP Comment:
This is a coordinator position description. Objectives are very general and stated in terms of improving various conditions associated with fish habitat, but there are no endpoints from which real progress can be assessed.

No monitoring results for project effectiveness are provided. Objectives are not described in measurable terms. Responsibilities do not seem to include any assessment to guide an adaptive management approach. There is only a brief statement for 2005 results regarding development of an offstream watering well, a project to divert wastewater, and funding negotiated for stream improvement of the Jocko River. Reviewers are provided no basis for assessing whether there is continued need/benefits from the position.

Since the purpose of the position is to coordinate projects in the basin, perhaps it could be incorporated in Project 200200300.
