Just Compensation

Notes:

Just compensation is an agency responsibility. While this is not a new concept, it does apply to the waiver valuations. In addition, the agency may authorize a staff review appraiser or other agency official to approve the just compensation amount.

The critical point is that it must be done in-house by the acquiring agency. Contract staff may not make the determination. The agency must authorize a staff review appraiser or other agency official to approve the just compensation amount.

Waiver valuations are valid alternative inputs to the determination of the offer of just compensation. When a waiver valuation is used, the just compensation offer still needs to be determined independently.
