Re: Second Appeal—Nashville-Davidson County, PA ID 037-52004-00, Direct Administrative Costs, FEMA-1909-DR-TN, Project Worksheets (PWs) 2488, 5206, 5505, and 5576
Dear Mr. Bassham:
This letter is in response to your letters dated August 13, 2012, which transmitted the referenced second appeals on behalf of Nashville-Davidson County (Applicant). The Applicant appealed the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) decision to deny funding for portions of the Direct Administrative Costs (DAC) on four Project Worksheets (PWs).
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant’s revised submission of Direct Administrative Costs is eligible in accordance with FEMA Disaster Assistance Policy 9525.9 Section 324 Management Costs & Direct Administrative Costs. The cost of $8,874 to complete the preparation of the PWs and for closeout activities are approved. Accordingly, I am granting the second appeal. By copy of this letter, I am requesting the Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement this decision.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
