A firm appealed the denial of its claim for a refund of $150, which the Department of the Army withheld for damage to household goods it transported for an Army member, contending that the: (1) inventory sheet showed that the damage existed at the time it picked up the goods; and (2) repair estimate contained no supporting details. GAO held that the: (1) claimant lacked compelling evidence showing preexisting damage; (2) Army had inventory sheets showing that the claimant took no exceptions to the condition of the goods; and (3) claimant's contention regarding the repair estimate lacked merit, since its liability indebtedness was much less than the repair amount. Accordingly, the claim was denied.

    We dismiss the protest because the protester's allegations are untimely.
