OPINION ISSUED JANUARY 30, 2001
DIVISION OF CORRECTIONS
Claimant appeared pro se.
Joy M. Bolling, 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 payment in the amount of $25,518.50 for
professional services rendered to respondent. The documentation for
these services was not processed for payment within the appropriate
fiscal year; therefore, claimant has not been paid. In its Amended
Answer, respondent admits the validity of the claim, but states
that the correct amount owed to claimant is $19,829.75. Respondent
further states that there were sufficient funds expired in the
appropriate fiscal year from which the invoices could have been
paid. Claimant has reviewed the Amended Answer and agrees that the
amount of $19,829.75 is the correct amount owed by respondent.
Accordingly, the Court makes an award to claimant in the
amount of $19,829.75.
Award of $19,829.75.
