PCSRF Administration 2021
| - |
CRITFC has been managing the PCSRF funded projects for its member tribes since 2000. For 2021, 16 new projects at an additional budget level of $2.1 million will need to be contracted, implemented, and monitored.The number of projects implemented will increase to 417 total projects (77 ongoing projects) with the addition of the FY 2021 ($2.1 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. Staff will also conduct project site visits when travel is permitted to make sure projects are being implemented in a timely manner and meeting all of the compliance requirements.
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 2021 funding, CRITFC will be managing 77 active individual projects simultaneously at a budget of nearly $7.6 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 project will benefit all salmonid species in the Columbia Basin as a result of all the tribal projects being implemented.
