OPINION ISSUED DECEMBER 2, 1991
DIVISION OF CORRECTIONS
Claimant represents self.
John E. Shank, Deputy Attorney General, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the allegations in the Notice of Claim and
Claimant seeks payment of $318.92 for telecommunication services provided respondent.
Respondent, in its Answer, admits the validity of the claim, but states that there were insufficient
funds in its appropriation for the fiscal year in question from which to pay the claim.
While the Court believes that this is a claim which in equity and good conscience should be paid,
the Court further believes that an award cannot be recommended based upon the decision in Airkem
Sales and Services, et al. vs. Dept. of Mental Health, 8 Ct. Cl. 180 (1971).
