33 CFR 211.24 - Disposition of claims.
prev | next
(a) Real estate claims for damages. Real estate claims for damages not exceeding $1,000 may be settled by the Division Engineer. If the Division Engineer allows the claim in toto it is transmitted to the local Disbursing Officer who transmits a check to claimant in payment of the claim. Where the claim is disallowed by the Division Engineer, in whole or in part, the claimant is so advised and in the event that he is unwilling to accept the decision of the Division Engineer, he may appeal within 30 days after receipt of such notice, through the Division Engineer's Office, to the Secretary of the Army. This appeal should state in full reasons for not accepting the Division Engineer's award.
(b) Claims for damages in excess of $1,000. Claims for damages in excess of $1,000 arising out of the use and occupancy of real estate under an agreement, express or implied, or otherwise, are forwarded to the General Accounting Office for settlement.
(c) Claims for rent or other payments. Claims for rent or other payments of a contractual nature regardless of amount arising out of the use and occupancy of real estate under an agreement, express or implied, or otherwise, are forwarded to the General Accounting Office.
(d) Mixed claims for rental and damages. When a claim arising from the use and occupancy of real estate has been received, the elements of the claim are first determined. If the claim is for damages not in excess of $1,000 and rental, these elements are if practicable, separated and the damages settled under AR 25-25, otherwise the claims are forwarded to the General Accounting Office for direct settlement.
