FY 18 AND FY 19 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  • Fiscal close-out.

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The Port of Oakland is the Non-Federal Sponsor (NFS).
  • Although construction was completed in July 1998, the project remains fiscally open. After a 2008 audit was conducted jointly by USACE and the NFS, the resulting settlement agreement resulted in a determination that the Government owed the NFS $2,087,000 as a refund for project construction costs.
  • Refund of $2,087,000 was made to the NFS in FY 2014 after receiving funds in the Work Plan for that fiscal year.
