§ 31.18 Limitations.

No claim will be considered by the Commissioner under this subpart unless filed with him within one year after the damage is alleged to have occurred.

8 31.19 Action by claimant.

The provisions of $ 31.4 shall be applicable to claims for damages cognizable under this subpart, except those provisions relating to personal injury or death.

is alleged to have occurred, and when in the opinion of the American Commissioner such claim is substantiated by a report of a board appointed by the said Commissioner. This act covers only claims for damages to lands or other private property and not claims for personal injuries. (Decision Comptroller General B-36817, September 28, 1943, unpublished.) To the extent that claims for damages to lands or other private property are based upon negligence, the provisions of this act have been superseded by the Federal Tort Claims Act (26 Comp. Gen. 452, Decision B-61757, January 6, 1947). Hence claims cognizable under the act of June 19, 1939, are limited to claims for damages accruing after March 31, 1937; (a) for damages to lands or other private property of any kind by reason of the operations of the United States, its officers or employees, in the survey, construction, operation, or maintenance of any project constructed or administered through the Commissioner; (b) where such claims do not exceed $1,000; and (c) which claims are not based upon the negligence of any officer or employee of the Government acting within the scope of his employment.

$ 31.20 Payment of claim.

Upon receipt of a claim by the Commissioner, the Commissioner will appoint a board to investigate the facts surrounding the claim and to make its report and recommendations to the Commission. The Commissioner will thereupon approve the claim in whole or in part, or disapprove the claim. If the claim is approved in whole or in part, and claimant accepts the settlement tendered by the Commissioner, the claimant will execute a release of his claim in the form prescribed by the Commissioner and will execute a voucher in the sum approved by the Commissioner. The file on the case, including the claim, the findings of the board, the approval of the Commissioner, the release, and the voucher, will thereupon be transmitted by the Commissioner through the Department to the General Accounting Office for settlement.

§ 31.17 Exclusion.

Claims which are cognizable under the Federal Tort Claims Act are not cognizable under the act of June 19, 1939.
