[Claim for Reimbursement of Navy Deduction for Lost Household Goods]
B-197911: Jun 27, 1988
- Full Report:
A firm claimed reimbursement for an amount which the Navy deducted from its account for the loss of a member's household goods, contending that it was not liable for the loss, since the Navy did not: (1) note the loss upon delivery; or (2) timely send it subsequent notice of the loss. GAO held that the firm was liable for the loss, since the Navy notified it of the loss within the 45-day time limit prescribed in the operating agreement. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
