OPINION ISSUED JANUARY 7, 2000
CORRECTIONAL FOODSERVICE MANAGEMENT
DIVISION OF CORRECTIONS
Claimant represents self.
Joy M. Cavallo, Assistant Attorney General, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the
allegations in the Notice of Claim and the respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks $69,289.25 for providing food services in May
1998 to Mt. Olive Correctional Center, a facility of the
respondent. The documentation for these services was not processed
for payment within the appropriate fiscal year; therefore, the
claimant has not been paid. In its Answer, the respondent admits
the validity of the claim and the amount, and states that there
were sufficient funds expired in the appropriate fiscal year from
which the claim could have been paid.
In view of the foregoing, the Court makes an award in the
amount of $69,289.25.
Award of $69,289.25.
