An Air Force officer appealed his denied waiver of indebtedness for excess freight charges incident to his permanent change of station, contending that: (1) he received erroneous advice from a travel counselor concerning his shipping costs; and (2) the carrier artificially inflated the weight of his shipment. GAO held that: (1) it would not challenge the Air Force's determination of excess weight, since there was no evidence of clear error to rebut the carrier's weight certificates; (2) there was no evidence that the excess weight and costs were incurred due to an erroneous authorization; and (3) there was no evidence that the officer's misunderstanding of the shipping cost was based on erroneous information provided by the Air Force. Accordingly, the settlement was affirmed.
