[Carrier's Claim for Refund of Army Set-Off for Damaged Household Goods]
B-238982.6: Feb 11, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its denied claim for a refund of an Army set-off for damaged household goods. GAO had held that the carrier was liable for the damages, since it was timely notified of the damages after delivery. In its request for reconsideration, the carrier contended that GAO improperly determined that it received timely notification of the damage. GAO held that the: (1) Army provided the carrier with timely notice, since the date of dispatch was within the 75-day requirement; and (2) differences between the dispatch and actual mailing dates were irrelevant. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
