A carrier claimed partial reimbursement for an Army off-set for freight damages to a member's unaccompanied baggage, contending that the Army should have calculated the off-set based on the weight of each individual, damaged item, not the weight of its external container. GAO held that the Army properly based the off-set on the external containers' weights, since their contents were not fully inventoried and some items were packed directly in the containers. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
