[Carrier's Claim for Air Force Off-Set for Freight Damage]
B-257515: Dec 1, 1994
- Full Report:
A carrier requested review of an Air Force offset for damage to an Air Force member's household goods, contending that it was not liable for the damage, since the member did not note the damage at the time of delivery. GAO held that the member's failure to note visible damage to her household goods did not bar her from recovering the costs of the damage, since it had been determined that the damage occurred prior to delivery. Accordingly, the original decision was affirmed.
