| PER CURIAM:
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the allegations in the Notice of Claim and Respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks to recover $10,238.49 for its portion of state-issued funds for volunteer fire departments operating in good standing. Claimant alleges that Respondent failed to make a timely report to the State Treasurer indicating that Claimant was in good standing and that this failure kept Claimant from receiving funds for the second quarter of 2011.
In its Answer, Respondent admits the validity of the claim as it was timely filed, and Respondent further agrees to the amount with respect to the funds not dispersed, and states that there were sufficient funds expired in that appropriate fiscal year from which the invoice could have been paid.
It is the opinion of the Court of Claims that Claimant should be awarded the sum of $10,238.49.
Award of $10,238.49.
