§ 842.94 Assertable claims.
A claim may be asserted in writing for loss of or damage to government property, against a tort-feasor when:
(a) Damage results from negligence and the claim is for:
(1) More than $100.
(2) Less than $100 but collection costs are small.

(c) The claim is for property damage arising from the same incident as a hospital recovery claim. (The two claims should be consolidated and processed under subpart N).
(d) The Tort-feasor or his insurer presents a claim against the government arising from the same incident. (Both claims should be processed together.)
(e) The claim is assertable as a counterclaim under an international agreement. (The claim should be processed under subpart H).
(f) The claim is based on product liability. HQ USAF/JACC approval must be obtained before asserting the claim.
