Reimbursement of Overcharge Resulting From Computer Error
B-188785: May 23, 1977
- Full Report:
The Secretary of Agriculture requested authorization to permit the Forest Service to reform a contract to allow payment to correct an error in volume determination resulting from a computer error. In light of the computer error and the sampling frequency computation used to indicate the volume of red pine sawtimber, the contract may be modified to indicate the correct volume. GAO will not object to a refund of the overcharge based on the erroneous volume designation in the contract.
