Far Western Graphics, Inc. (FWG) appeals the Government Printing Office's (GPO) decision to terminate for default Purchase Order No. R-3038 placed with FWG under Jacket No. 578-733 for 75,000 Annual Northwest Forest Pass Hangtags, as well as GPO's assessment of excess procurement costs resulting from that termination. FWG asserts claims for $5,100 due under the purchase order, $900 in "administrative fees," and $840 in excess procurement costs reportedly already collected by GPO-a total of $6,840. Appeal at 1-2; FWG Letter to the Board re: "Short Paid" Invoice (undated).

We deny the appeal.
