dual radio personalities" to implement a "Wide Area System Scan" (WASS).58 In sum, Port Authority
submits that the split system "solution" required development of the Task Plan, supra, the re-flashing of
radios, and implementation of the WASS. It also claims that its internal staff performed coordination
and oversight functions in connection with the split system.6
28. Sprint Position. Sprint states that M/A-COM apparently spent 32 hours on radio personality
work and 46 hours responding to concerns that arose from BAH's dual-personality programming.6'
Sprint notes that thishs aspect of the project management task should have been a simple summary of the
issues faced and decisions already made that determined the solution adopted."'6 Sprint claims that "it is
patently unreasonable for this sub-task to have taken more than a full week of labor to relay already
known information to other parties."63 Sprint offers to compensate M/A-COM for 24 hours of effort.
3. Temporary Back-to-Back Systems
29. Port Authority Position. Port Authority contends that it did not foresee the need to provide a
temporary system to back up its auxiliary system. which was used at the John F. Kennedy Airport,
Newark Airport, and Teterboro Airport while the primary system was rebanded.65 Port Authority claims
that Sprint provided it with equipment for the temporary backup system but refused to pay for the
transportation and installation of the equipment.6 Port Authority also argues that (1) BAH charged
additional fees because it had to modify its plan to include the temporary backup system and (2) M/A-
COM generated additional project management costs to coordinate transportation and installation of the
equipment necessary to make the backup system operational."7
30. After the FRA was executed, the Region 8 Regional Planning Committee (RPC) asked Port
Authority to provide a mutual aid back-to-back facility.68 Port Authority claims that this request was
made during meetings that Sprint attended, and that Sprint was therefore on notice that it would be
responsible for the consequent cost.69
31. BAH and M/A-COM made three unsuccessful attempts to implement the back-to-back
system. Finally, Sprint supplied Port Authority with the equipment necessary to render the back-to-back
system operational.70 Thus, Port Authority contends that Sprint, having been involved in rendering the
back-to-back system operational, was on notice of its complexity and should pay for BAH and M/A-
