|Text of Recommendation|| |
We are questioning the full $234,383 in outside legal costs. We recommend that the CHOBr Project team review all of the costs that the CMc incurred and billed to the AOC related to the hearing and determine if the costs are allowable and reasonable as reimbursable costs. • If the CHOBr Project team determines that any of the costs that the CMc incurred for the hearing are allowable, the CHOBr Project team should determine whether the AOC should fund the costs through a contract change order and what funding source the AOC should use to fund the costs (e.g., contingency, allowance). • If any of the costs that the CMc incurred for the hearing are unallowable, the CHOBr Project team should recover the costs to the extent legally and administratively possible. If applicable, the CHOBr Project team should also recover any additional amounts resulting from the application of items such as overhead and fees to the unallowable costs.
