David A. Barnette, Attorney at Law, for clamant.
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 $6,931.96 for providing state-wide mobile
telephone services to respondent in accordance with a contact
entered into with the State of West Virginia. 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 $6,916.59.
Respondent further states that there were sufficient funds expired
in the appropriate fiscal year from which the invoices could have
been paid. Claimant indicated that it agrees to accept the admitted
amount as full and complete satisfaction of this claim.
Accordingly, the Court makes an award to claimant in the
amount of $6,916.59.
Award of $6,916.59.
