Final Council recommendation (Nov 2006)
Funding category: Expense
Recommended budgets: FY07: $0 | FY08: $0 | FY09: $0
ISRP final recommendation: Response requested
This proposal is to fund a pilot project collaboration between StreamNet and CSMEP to develop data standards, data acquisition tools, and data dissemination for the region. A primary goal of CSMEP is to document, integrate, and make available existing monitoring data on species of concern. This proposal may complement the CSMEP proposal (although this proposal is not referenced in the CSMEP proposal) by providing the data management expertise. The overall idea may have merit but the proposal does not provide enough detail to evaluate the benefits of the project or the likelihood of success. A response should describe the type of data that will be collected and managed and relate these to fish and wildlife populations. How will protocols be established and enforced. How will quality assurance for the data be conducted? What evidence is available to show how useful the data will be to others? What is the value added to the data from this project? How will the project be monitored to determine its success?
