Architect-Engineer Services for Connecting Passageway in Veterans Hospital
B-184481: Aug 19, 1975
- Full Report:
Advice was requested as to whether the Veterans Administration (VA) may pay the Bexar County Hospital District one-half of a fee for architect-engineer services incurred in preparation of an overhead passageway. Since the hospital district abandoned construction of the passageway linking a county hospital to the VA hospital, VA need not reimburse the hospital district for its share of hospital design costs. Quantum meruit and quantum valebant recovery are precluded as the government received no tangible benefit.
