Re:Second Appeal-Aplington-Parkersburg Schools, PA ID 023-01F68-00, Accelerated High School Construction Schedule, FEMA‑1763‑DR‑IA, Project Worksheet (PW) 4674
Dear Mr. Schouten:
This letter is in response to a letter from your office dated November 2, 2011, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of Aplington-Parkersburg Schools (Applicant).The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) denial of funding for building construction costs that exceed the Applicant’s insurance settlement.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant may apportion its Extra Expense insurance coverage to both the ineligible costs associated with the accelerated construction, and the eligible costs of the temporary facilities.These insurance proceeds are currently applied to temporary facilities in PW 596.FEMA will document in each PW that $280,000 of the insurance proceeds that were applied to temporary facilities in PW 596 may be applied to the ineligible costs requested under PW 4674.Therefore, the appeal is granted in the amount of $280,000 to be obligated to PW 596.By copy of this letter, I am requesting that the Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision.This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
