Dear Mr. DeBosier:
This letter is in response to a letter from your office dated April 27, 2009, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the Facility Planning and Control Department (Applicant).The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) decision to deny its request for reimbursement for cost associated with “temporary” repairs to the main campus buildings to provide additional temporary facilities.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the repairs that the Applicant made to the main campus buildings are Category E permanent repairs, which FEMA has already funded.The Applicant is not eligible for additional Category B funds for the repairs.Therefore, the second appeal is denied.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision.This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
