​Hatchery/Major Construction
In a Statement of Work, these work elements are used to describe all of the activities involved in participating in the Council's Three-Step Review Process. This category includes the preparation or revision of documents required by the Three-Step Process, responding to Council/ISRP questions, attending meetings with Council/ISRP; and all planning and design as well as actual construction associated with building or expanding a hatchery. These work elements may also be used by contractors who are participating in the Council's Three-Step Review Process for other major (non-hatchery) construction efforts.

Three-Step Review Process (PDF)
In order to determine if a proposal requires a review process, the following triggers have been developed. When the Council recommends a proposal as part of a funding recommendation, it will also identify which of the following triggers applies to direct the project into the step review. This will occur as a comment as part of the funding recommendations to Bonneville in association to a particular solicitation. The Council recommendation should clearly articulate whether or not the proposal will be subject to the three-step review process and what the expectations (e.g., time-certain deliverables) will be as a condition of future funding.

Artificial Production Initiatives will trigger a review when a project proposes any one of the following:
(a) construct significant new production facilities;
(b) begin planting fish in waters they have not been planted in before;
(c) increase significantly the number of fish being introduced;
(d) change stocks or the number of stocks; and/or
(e) change the location of production facilities.

It also includes initiation of funding existing facilities that were formerly funded otherwise.

Other Project Initiatives - the Council may request a review for other projects based on the following triggers:
(a) construct a facility that costs more than $1,000,000 during the fiscal year;
(b) phased engineering designs are required for contractual purposes;
(c) proposed actions address the entire watershed;
(d) action is a multi-agency and multi-contractual effort;
(e) new proposal that is outside the current solicitation and review cycle;
(f) additional review or fix-it-loop is requested; and/or
(g) the action is a substantial deviation from the adopted subbasin plan.
