Project 2007-314-00 - Regional Consolidation of Habitat Restoration Project Information From Multiple Funding Sources with Dissemination Through the StreamNet Website
Project Number:
2007-314-00
Title:
Regional Consolidation of Habitat Restoration Project Information From Multiple Funding Sources with Dissemination Through the StreamNet Website
Summary:
Detailed information on habitat restoration projects is maintained by the multiple sources of project funding, but there is currently no way to review consolidated information in a common format. This will obtain data across agencies and disseminate.

Final Round ISRP Comment:
The proposal is sparse in details so justification for the benefits of the proposed work is difficult to assess. It would seem that this could be useful, but it is unclear how much the consolidated web site would be used and what provisions there are for quality control. Although we recommended this type of an effort as needed in the systemwide/province review, this proposal doesn't adequately describe the problem or how the project would address the problem. The proposal does not adequately describe how this project would relate to the other monitoring programs. It is not clear whether this project would depend on others for developing standard protocols or whether this project would develop and require standardization.

The overall objective is to obtain data across agencies and disseminate them. It is not clear what the timeline will be. Work elements are described in very general form. Needed is more detail on what type of data, a framework for data capture, or specifics on how "cooperators will compile, standardize and exchange data." What is their incentive to collaborate and standardize? How well documented are the existing data, enough to allow standardization? There is reference to what agency cooperators will do but not a clear distinction between what will be done within agencies and what will be done by this project.

Not enough information is provided to evaluate the adequacy of facilities, equipment, and personnel, so it is not possible to discern if personnel have the appropriate expertise to conduct this project. The proposal states that new personnel will be hired for these tasks, but justification is lacking. Percent of time by project management personnel is not identified.
