PW ID# 200; Overtime Labor Costs
Citation: FEMA-1603-DR-LA, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, PW# 200, Overtime Labor Costs
Beginning August 27, 2005, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office (Applicant) initiated emergency measures to alleviate immediate threats from Hurricane Katrina. Project Worksheet #200 was written for a total of $1,164,035 in overtime labor costs incurred by the Applicant between August 27 and
September 12, 2005. In a subsequent version, FEMA deobligated $266,076 in standby/on-call time and $43,224 in duplicated fringe benefits because the Applicant’s employees were not performing eligible emergency work.
Are the Applicant’s standby/on-call costs related to the performance of eligible emergency work?
