TO GEORGIA RAILROAD:

REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR FILE P-3762, TAKING EXCEPTION TO THE DIVISION BASIS APPLIED IN OUR DECISION DATED JUNE 6, 1951, B-102905, IN ESTABLISHING THE NET FARE PERTAINING TO YOUR CLAIM FOR ADDITIONAL CHARGES FOR PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION FURNISHED 171 MEMBERS OF THE ARMY FROM CAMP GORDON (GROVETOWN), GEORGIA, TO ONO, CALIFORNIA, UNDER TRANSPORTATION REQUEST WQ 7,872,715 IN MARCH 1943.

THAT DECISION APPLIED A NET FARE OF $46.34 PER CAPITA, RESULTING IN AN OVERPAYMENT IN THIS CONNECTION OF $208.62. THIS AMOUNT WAS SUBSEQUENTLY DEDUCTED FROM AN AMOUNT OTHERWISE FOUND DUE YOU IN THE PAYMENT OF YOUR BILL P-11013. IN YOUR PRESENT SUBMISSION YOU CLAIM CHARGES BASED ON A NET FARE OF $47.61 PER CAPITA. UPON A FURTHER EXAMINATION OF THE MATTER, HOWEVER, IT NOW APPEARS THAT THE CORRECT NET FARE SHOULD BE $46.45 PER CAPITA, COMPUTED AS SHOWN IN THE ENCLOSED PHOTOSTATIC COPIES (2) OF THE APPLICABLE FORMULA FURNISHED BY OUR TRANSPORTATION DIVISION. ON THE BASIS OF THE NET FARE OF $46.45 THE CHARGES WOULD BE PROPERLY FOR COMPUTATION AS FOLLOWS:

TABLE APPLICABLE CHARGES, 171 PERSONS AT $46.45 PER CAPITA - $7,942.95 PAID ON BILL P-3762, 171 AT $49.80 PER CAPITA - $8,515.80 DEDUCTED ON BILL P-8639 - $383.04 DEDUCTED ON BILL P 11013 - 208.62 591.66 7,924.14
