PCSRF Administration XX
| - |
CRITFC is charged with the coordination and administration of PCSRF funded projects within CRITFC and its member tribes. For 2019, 17 new projects at an additional budget level of $2.0 million will need to be contracted, implemented, and monitored. Since 2000, 368 tribal projects at a budget level of $34.4 million have been implemented. Of the implemented projects, 326 projects (89%) are completed and 42 (11%) 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 385 total projects with the addition of the FY 2019 ($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.
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.
Each tribe will submit semi-annual technical performance reports to CRITFC on September 30th (covering the period of March 1st to August 31st), and March 31st (covering the period of September 1st to February 28th) of each year of the contract, and a final report 90 days after the expiration of the underlying grant. It will be mandatory that the current PCSRF Performance Measure Metrics be completed for each respective project type during the reporting period.
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. CRITFC will complete the PCSRF data validation reports and submit them to NOAA Fisheries on April 30th and October 30th of each year and remedy any problems identified by NOAA Fisheries staff.
CRITFC staff will meet with all tribal project managers to assist in developing spending plans/strategies for the PCSRF projects that will continue to incorporate the Wy-Kan-Ush-Mi Wa-Kish-Wit. The spending plan will clarify how the PCSRF funds will be used in a timely and efficient manner. Each spending plan will identify ways to leverage more cost-share opportunities and ensure that adequate monitoring and evaluation is incorporated in each project to demonstrate salmon restoration benefits.
This project will benefit all salmonid species in the Columbia Basin as a result of all the tribal projects being implemented.
