OPINION ISSUED JULY 19, 2000
UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA RESEARCH
DIVISION OF NATURAL RESOURCES
Claimant appeared pro se.
Daynus Jividen, Senior Assistant Attorney General, for
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the
allegations in the Notice of Claim and respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks $3,030.00 for an annual contractual obligation
to study and examine wildlife for health conditions and/or causes
of mortality for respondent. The invoice for the third quarter of
the 1999-2000 fiscal year was not received by the Wildlife
Resources Section; therefore, the documentation for these services
was not processed for payment within the appropriate fiscal year;
and 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 $3,030.00.
Award of $3,030.00.
