RE: Second Appeal City of Los Angeles, Department of Water and Power; PA ID # 037-91079, Overhead Costs and Security Wall,
Dear Mr. Jacks:
This letter is in response to the referenced second appeal transmitted by your letter dated December 6, 2004. In its appeal, the City of Los Angeles, Department of Water and Power (LADWP) requested additional funding for rental equipment overhead costs totaling $89,792 ($14,972 for the Water System and $74,820 for the Power System facilities) and $100,455 in additional costs for the security wall at the Rinaldi Receiving Station.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that LADWP has not provided information to establish the direct link between the overhead charges and the eligible rental vehicle invoices to support its claim for rental equipment overhead charges. LADWP has provided supporting documentation for the security wall at the Rinaldi Receiving Station. Therefore, the appeal is partially approved. By copy of this letter, I am requesting the Regional Director take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the LADWP of my determination. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter as set forth in 44 CFR § 206.206.
