Claimants appeared pro se.
William S. Steele, Managing Deputy Attorney General, for
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the
allegations in the Notice of Claim and respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks $15,000.00 for costs incurred in providing
storage facilities for liquor inventory under an agreement with the
respondent State agency. The documentation for providing the
rental premises was not processed for payment within the
appropriate fiscal year; therefore, claimant has not been paid. In
its Answer, respondent admits the validity of the claim, but states
that the amount calculated by respondent as due and owing to the
claimant is $13,933.00. Claimant agrees with this amount and that
it is fair and reasonable. Respondent further states that there
were sufficient funds expired in the appropriate fiscal years from
which the invoices could have been paid.
The Court has reviewed the documentation submitted with the
claim and by the respondent State agency and has determined that
the amount of $13,933.00 is fair and reasonable for both parties.
Accordingly, the Court makes an award to claimant in the
amount of $13,933.00.Award of $13,933.00.
