Congress requested that GAO review the statements in a communication from a shipping company relating to the nopayment of transportation charges on a shipment from Scotia, New York to Jonesboro, Arkansas under a Government bill of lading.

GAO found that it did not receive the claim within 3 years, as required by law, and thus the payment of the claim cannot be legally authorized.
