Re: Second Appeal - California Institute of Technology, PA ID 037-90027, Unsupported Project Costs, FEMA-1008-DR-CA, DSRs 27787, 27788, 28889, and 27790
Dear Mr. Jones:
This letter is in response to your January 10, 2002, letter forwarding the referenced second appeal on behalf of California Institute of Technology (Cal-Tech). Cal-Tech has requested that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reinstate funding for the force account labor costs and repair to a mass spectrometer. The amount in question is $67,601.
As described in the enclosed appeal analysis, I have determined that Cal-Tech has not provided adequate documentation to support reversing the previous appeal decision. Accordingly, I conclude that Cal-Tech is not eligible for the additional assistance. Therefore, I am denying the appeal.
Please inform Cal-Tech of my decision. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206.
