PCSRF Administration XIX
| - |
CRITFC is charged with the coordination and administration of PCSRF funded projects within CRITFC and its member tribes. For 2018, 14 new projects at an additional budget level of $2.0 million will need to be contracted, implemented, and monitored. Since 2000, 354 tribal projects at a budget level of $32.4 million have been implemented. Of the implemented projects, 311 projects (88%) are completed and 43 (12%) projects are ongoing. The majority of the projects are on-the-ground projects involving collaboration with federal, state and private landowners. The number of projects implemented will increase to 369 total projects (includes a new FY 2016 WST project due to a budget adjustment) with the addition of the FY 2018 ($2.0 million) funds.
Primary duties under this project include applying for the annual competitive PCSRF funding using the federal government application process, writing and amending subcontracts with the tribes, maintaining the PCSRF database, reports to the CRITFC Commission, budget tracking by project, financial management, gathering individual progress reports and submitting comprehensive progress reports to NOAA Fisheries, coordinating the project selection process and audit compliance (see attached timeline) process.
The project also involves participating in all meetings of NOAA Fisheries regarding planning, implementation, region-wide coordination, and reporting of the PCSRF effort. Continued efforts also include assembling the Phase II performance measures (metrics) from all CRITFC and tribal projects required by NOAA and entering them into the PCSRF database.
With multiple fiscal years under the PCSRF program and the addition of the FY 2018 funding, we will be managing 58 active individual projects simultaneously at a budget of nearly $3.7 million. The internal CRITFC audit requires detailed individual project budget tracking. The PCSRF electronic database has to be maintained and the development of reports and management of official documents has to continue.
CRITFC will compile the tribal progress reports along with reports on its own PCSRF salmon recovery activities. CRITFC will update the NOAA Fisheries PCSRF database as new or modified project information becomes available, or at least quarterly, so that the PCSRF database contains accurate descriptions and performance metrics for all completed, ongoing, and proposed projects.
This will benefit all Salmonid species in the Columbia Basin as a result of all the tribal projects implemented.
