Re: Second Appeal – City of Springfield, PA ID 167-72000-00, OIG Audit Report DD-10-04 Labor Costs, FEMA-1633-DR-IL
Dear Mr. Monken:
This is in response to your March 6, 2012 letter, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the City of Springfield (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of $1,059,643 in mutual aid and force account labor costs based on findings of the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (OIG) Audit Report DD-10-04.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant has not demonstrated that the mutual aid and force account labor costs questioned by the OIG are eligible for reimbursement under FEMA’s Public Assistance Program. Therefore, I am denying the appeal.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
