Honorable Joseph Harrington

Mayor of Valley Park

Valley Park, Missouri  63088

 

Dear Mayor Harrington:

 

   The purpose of this letter is to request a formal submission by the local sponsor of costs incurred after October 1, 1985 through 30 September 1997 in which credit toward the total project cost will be requested.

 

   In accordance with the Local Cooperation Agreement signed on August 12, 1992, Article VI, paragraph d. we are obligated to render a final accounting of the project costs upon completion of the project and resolution of all relevant contract claims and appeals.  We have discovered, however, that it is extremely beneficial to assess the incurred cost status with the local sponsor as we proceed through execution of the project.  To date some information on costs incurred on the Meramec River Basin Project has been submitted, but there has not been a formal validation of local sponsor costs applicable to the project.  We may want to consider an interim audit of the project through the end of the fiscal year 1997.  The cost of the audit would be cost shared between the federal government and the local sponsor.

 

   I would be happy to discuss this matter with you in greater detail.  If you have any questions, please contact Captain Jim Wolak, Project Manager, at (314) 331-8801.

 

Sincerely,

 

[so signed]

 

David Leake
