Dear Colonel Kirkpatrick:
This is in response to your letter dated January 18, 2008, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the Ochsner Clinic Foundation (Applicant). The Applicant appealed the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA) decision to deny the Applicants request for $1,949,243 for employee overtime expenses following Hurricane Katrina.
As explained in the enclosed appeal analysis, we have determined that the overtime expenses are not eligible for reimbursement. Therefore, the appeal is denied.
Please inform the Applicant of my determination. My determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206.
