Re: Second Appeal – St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, PA ID#103-033FE-00 Overtime Labor Costs, FEMA-1603-DR-LA, Project Worksheet 200
Dear Colonel Smith:
This is in response to a letter from your office dated April 25, 2006, forwarding the referenced second appeal on behalf of the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the determination of Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) to deny assistance for overtime labor costs for standby/on-call time.
As described in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant’s employees were not performing eligible emergency work in accordance with Section 403 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, P.L. 93-288 and 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) §206.225. Therefore, I am denying this appeal.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter as set forth in 44 CFR §206.206.
