[Request for Review of Air Force Off-Set for Freight Loss]
B-256546: Sep 23, 1994
- Full Report:
A carrier requested review of its denied claim for refund of an offset for the loss of an Air Force member's household goods, contending that: (1) there was no evidence that the missing item was ever tendered to it; and (2) the described item could not fit in the shipping container used. GAO held that: (1) two entries in the shipping inventory referred generally to the missing item; (2) the member used the catalog description of the item merely to show the type of item tendered rather than the actual item; and (3) the member provided sufficient evidence that the missing item was tendered. Accordingly, the settlement was affirmed.
