Re: Second Appeal-Guadalupe Blanco River Authority, PA ID# 000-U0169-00 Contract Services and Force Account Labor Costs, FEMA-1425-DR-TX, Project Worksheet (PW) 850
Dear Mr. Colley:
This is in response to your letter dated June 9, 2006, transmitting the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority’s (Applicant’s) second appeal, dated June 2, 2006, of Project Worksheet 850. The appeal disputes the basis on which the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) denied assistance for certain contract services and force account labor costs in connection with the disaster.
As explained in the enclosed appeal analysis, the Applicant is eligible for reimbursement of costs for contract services supplied by Lower Colorado River Authority as well as force account costs incurred in support of permanent repairs to spill gates of Dam TP-4. Accordingly, by copy of this letter, I am requesting the Regional Director prepare and obligate a version of PW 850 in the amount of $56,635.90.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR § 206.206.
John R. D'Araujo, Jr. Director of Recovery
