6 April Conditions Based Movement Call (USTC J9)

One update from the PPF on a question IAM asked for clarification dealing with deliveries out of Storage In-Transit (SIT) and when inconvenience claims would start under the scenario where the request for delivery was made outside the 7 Government Business Day (GBD) window. In that scenario, the requirement is to deliver within 2 GBDs. We asked USTC if the date of the request was included as one of the two GBDs? The answer provided during the PPF was that it was. In their interpretation at the PPF, if the member requests delivery on 1 June, and it’s outside the 7 GBD window, then the shipment must be delivered on 1 or 2 June to avoid an inconvenience claim. IAM challenged that assertion after the PPF, and today, USTC concurred with our assessment that the words in the rules suggest that the requirement is 2 GBDs “from” the requested date. Therefore, in the above scenario, if a member requests delivery outside 7 GBDs, as an example on 1 June. Two GBDs from that date is 3 June. USTC concurred with that interpretation.
