Performance Measure 34 - Number of Projects Completed
Definition All completed projects that are part of the EIP. Projects are categorized by the EIP program they predominantly affect. However, any one project can contribute to many EIP programs. Projects are also categorized by stage of completion based on whether funds have been allocated or implementation is complete.

Critical Definitions

Completed project – In general, a project is considered completed when all actions have been performed to satisfy the requirements laid out in the project plan. “Completed project” is defined differently for projects that fall under different EIP programs. 

  • Stormwater Management – Projects are considered complete when planned facilities are installed and are functioning as designed. All parcels retrofitted with stormwater BMPs within each calendar year are together counted as one “project” for the purposes of tracking this PM. This stormwater retrofit project is considered complete on December 31st of each year, as long as stormwater retrofits were completed during that year.
  • Watershed Management; Threatened, Endangered and Sensitive Species – Projects are considered complete when planned improvements, or restoration and enhancement activities, have been installed, even if monitoring activities are ongoing or vegetation has not fully matured.
  • Invasive Species – For the Acres Treated for Invasive Species PM, projects are considered complete when planned activities have been implemented. All inspections completed for the Watercraft Inspection Program within each calendar year are considered collectively as one “project” for purposes of tracking this PM. This watercraft inspection project is considered complete on December 31st of each year, as long as inspections were done in that year.
  • Forest Ecosystem Health and Hazardous Fuels Reduction – Fuels reduction projects are considered completed when all planned activities have been completed. Each parcel of private, local government and vacant urban core land treated to have defensible space is considered complete when defensible space regulations are satisfied on that parcel. All parcels treated for defensible space within each calendar year are together counted as one “project” for the purposes of tracking this PM. This defensible space project is considered complete on December 31st of each year, as long as defensible space treatments were completed during that year.
  • Air Quality and Transportation – Each non-compliant wood stove removed or retrofitted counts as a separate project and is considered complete when the new stove is in compliance with TRPA regulations (or when the old stove is completely removed, if no new device will replace it).
  • Recreation; Scenic – Projects are considered completed when all planned improvements for the project have been installed.
  • Program Support, Reporting, and Technical Assistance Program – The EIP Annual Report is considered complete when it is made available to the public in its final form. Operations and maintenance activities are grouped into projects by funding allocation, and each project is considered completed when the planned activities have been performed. This may correspond to all operations and maintenance activities that are expected to take place over a specific time period. If all planned activities have been performed, the end of this defined time period will mark completion of the project.

Funds allocated – This PM tracks both completed projects (those which have been fully implemented) and projects for which funds have been allocated, but implementation is not yet complete. 

Accounting Period and Scale

Projects are tracked at various times scales, based on the project type. In general, a completed project should be tracked in the EIP Database as soon as possible after it is completed, but no later than the end of December for all projects completed in that year. This data entry is performed by project implementers, and the number of projects is tracked in the EIP Database as information is recorded for all other PMs.
