I think I see @backpack's issue with the BOR doing anything with regard to evaluating the project for any reason, other than a simply, cursory review.
The proposal signature area for Council/District says:
So this rep has already taken in to account the GTA and the pertinent sections quote by @fredjohnson. So the project is reviewed and approved. As others have pointed out when discussing the proposal versus the plan versus the final report, BSA does not require ANY pre-work review of the plan or the report and THAT is a problem. Many issues could be discovered if the Scout were to develop and have the plan signed off and not just the proposal.
Next is the approval of the final report and Requirement #5. The workbook says:
This means that the Requirements is signed off. This should be treated like a completed Blue Card or any other signed requirement. Remember, a Scout learns, is tested, reviewed and recognized. After the SM and beneficiary sign off on the requirement, the BOR cannot do a thing to revoke it.They can find another basis to challenge him, but not on the project.
Ummm ... That is a desired reading, but not a clear reading of the explicit words. As quoted, BSA GTA sections 188.8.131.52 says "Boards of review should " and BSA GTA 184.108.40.206 says "At the board of review, ...". This is repeated in the BSA Advancement News that adds discussion and information.
Given BSA says "Boards of review", I'm going to go out on a limb and say they meant "Boards of review".
