Evaluation Criterion Information Needed The extent, and quality, to which the subcategories of NPS pollution are identified and described. CWA 319 subcategories of NPS pollution- need detailed description of which subcategories are impacted with a description of what these impacts are on the watershed. The extent, and quality, to which the water quality problems or threats to be addressed are identified and described. The extent, and quality, to which the goals and objectives of the project specifically identify the project location and activities to be implemented. Agriculture Farming and livestock production Silviculture or forest management Construction Runoff Urban Runoff Resource Extraction/Exploration/Development Land Disposal Hydrologic Modification Channelizaton Dam Construction Riparian Modification Flow Regulation/Modification Other: Natural Conditions What assessments have been done to justify the project? This helps us establish the need for the project and provide for pre and post testing of the project for evaluation purposes. What are the goals and objectives of the project in SMART terms? The ESA goals and objectives were kind of nebulous. 1. Specific – Objectives should specify what they want to achieve. 2. Measurable – You should be able to measure whether you are meeting the objectives or not. 3. Achievable - Are the objectives you set, achievable and attainable? 4. Realistic – Can you realistically achieve the objectives with the resources you have? 5. Time – When do you want to achieve the set objectives? The extent to which significant water quality benefits will be achieved as a result of the project. What specific benefits will there be to fish and wildlife, the Russian River, the reservation and people. What benefits will accrue? The adequacy and specificity of the budget in relation to each work plan component/task. The budget was a little weak and did not tie back well to the work plan, the goals and objectives, and did not include a cost-benefit analysis. The justification needed The level of detail in relation to the schedule for achieving the activities identified in the work plan. additional detail. The Gantt Chart will help but detail will need to be documented. I also need more information on the who, what, where, when, and how of the work activities performed, what their respective roles are etc. We will use a Gantt chart this time. This should tie in much of the detail. This will tie the goals and objectives, the work plan, the budget, deliverables and evaluation criteria all together. The extent and quality to which the roles and responsibilities of the recipient and project partners in carrying out the proposed work plan activities are specifically identified. The Project Manager is Tom Keegan (I assume). Are there strategic partners? Who will work with DEP on this project? The extent and quality to which the performance evaluation process meets each of the following subcriteria: Extent and quality to which the proposal demonstrates potential environmental results Extent and quality to which the proposal demonstrates a sound plan for measuring and tracking progress toward achieving the expected outputs and outcomes Extent and quality to which the applicant adequately documented and/or reported on progress towards achieving the expected results What are the outputs (Outputs are the direct products of a program’s activities. They are usually measured in terms of the volume of work accomplished) and outcomes (The ultimate impact you hope to achieve with the proposed project. Outcomes should be quantifiable measures or indicators and identified in terms of the change). What performance indicators does the tribe want to declare for this project? What are the expected results in concrete, scientific terms? What data will be tracked to measure progress including pre and post testing? The extent and quality to which the proposal addresses one of the following four factors. The proposal develops a watershed-based plan and implements a watershed-based Plan. The proposal develops a watershed-based plan and implements a watershed project (that does not implement a watershed-based plan). The proposal implements a watershed-based plan. The proposal implements a watershed project that is a significant step towards solving NPS impairments or threats on a watershed-wide basis. Which factor are we addressing? How well did we do in previous 319 funding?
