This evaluation, included in the application in a separate section, should contain information on alternatives considered for each project and an explanation of why each specific conservation project was selected, procedures used, processes used, staffing levels used, funding requirements, and so on.
3. The lessons learned. Included in the report in a separate section, this details what the applicant, in hindsight, would do differently on each project.
