§ 101-27.503 Allowable credit.
Allowable credit for activities returning material that is accepted by GSA will be reflected in billings by GSA and will be commensurate with the condition of the material received.
(a) Credit will be granted at the rate of 80 percent of the current GSA selling price after acceptance by GSA for new, used, repaired, or reconditioned material which is serviceable and issuable to all agencies without limitation or restriction (condition code A).
(b) Credit will be granted at the rate of 60 percent of the current GSA selling price for items which involve limited expenses or effort to restore to serviceable condition, and which is accomplished in the storage activity where the stock is located (e.g., a deficiency in packing or packaging which restricts the issue or requires repacking or repackaging (condition code E)).
(c) No credit will be given for material returned to GSA which does not meet the above criteria or which was returned to GSA without prior approval.
(b) Upon receipt of material authorized for return by GSA, the offering activity will be provided verification of receipt and a report of any discrepancies.

A notice of credit will be provided the offering activity through credit entries on the monthly billing statement from the supporting GSA finance center.
(c) When offers of material that have been authorized by GSA for return are withdrawn, offering activities shall report such cancellation to the GSA region that was designated to receive the offered material.

8 101–27.506 Determination of accept
ability for credit. Returned material will be examined by GSA upon receipt to determine acceptability for credit.

The returning activity will be officially notified of the disposal action taken by GSA.
8 101–27.505 Notice to activity.

Prior to shipment of the material authorized by GSA for return, activities shall verify the declared condition. (If the offering activity considers that the transportation costs of sending the material to the GSA material return facility are excessive in relation to the value of the material and withdraws the offers, the GSA region that was designated to receive the offered material shall be notified accordingly.)
(2) For rejected offers, GSA will so inform the activity offering the material and give the reason for nonacceptance.
