A firm appealed the denial of its claim for an amount the Army set off from payment for damages to household goods that it transported, contending that it was not liable, since the Army did not notify it of the damages within the 45-day limit for presumption of liability. GAO held that the Army properly held the claimant liable for the damages, since it presented evidence substantiating that the damage occurred in transit. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
