Recommendations

To the extent legally and administratively possible, the CHOBr Project team recover the $38,529 of unallowable costs reimbursed and, if applicable, any additional, unallowable amounts resulting from the application of items such as overhead and fees to the unallowable costs.

To the extent legally and administratively possible, the CHOBr Project team review questioned costs of $55,235 and, recover any amounts for which the Construction Manager as Constructor cannot provide support. 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 unsupported costs.

The AOC re-evaluate its approach to strengthen the review and internal control process for small-dollar reimbursable cost transactions to help ensure that the CMc does not include, and the CHOBr Project team does not approve, unallowable costs in the pay applications.
