EDUCATION AND STATE EMPLOYEES GRIEVANCE BOARD
Joseph J. Seasick, Jr., Attorney at Law, for claimant.
Joy M. Cavallo, Assistant Attorney General, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the
allegations in the Notice of Claim and respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks $224.96 for unpaid telephone charges for the
fiscal years 1997 and 1998. The documentation for these services
was not processed for payment within the appropriate fiscal years;
therefore, claimant has not been paid. In its Answer, respondent
admits the validity of the claim as well as the amount, and states
that there were sufficient funds expired in the appropriate fiscal
year from which the invoice could have been paid.
Accordingly, the Court makes an award to claimant in the
amount of $224.96.
Award of $224.96.
