Re: Second Appeal –Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, PA ID 000-92043, Electric Power System, FEMA-1247-DR-PR, Various Project Worksheet (PWs)
Dear Mr. Rios Torres:
This letter is in response to the letter from your office dated September 17, 2013, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) de-obligation of costs associated with the recovery of the Puerto Rico electric power system. The appeal does not specify a total amount in dispute.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that FEMA correctly de-obligated funding based on the Office of Inspector General (OIG) report and review of additional supporting documentation submitted by the Applicant. With regard to the Applicant’s assertion that the Grantee double de-obligated certain costs, the Applicant was advised that this was a matter that would need to be addressed by your office, not FEMA. Accordingly, I am denying this appeal.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206 Appeals.
