The offer amounts to £2.5 million for England midfielder Carrick and £1 million for former Nottingham Forest hit-man Harewood.
Palace chief Iain Dowie is particularly keen to land a quality central midfield reinforcement after missing out on Millwall's Tim Cahill recently and obviously sees Carrick as that man.
West Ham have repeatedly claimed that they do not have to sell their top players, but could decide the time is right to cash in on the pair after missing out on an instant return to the top-flight last time around - ironically at the hands of Palace in the play-off final.
Meanwhile, Palace have also submitted a £1.5 million bid for Southampton defender Fitz Hall.
Eagles chief Dowie worked with the 23-year-old during his time as Oldham manager and was highly-influential in the defender's progress at Boundary Park before he moved to St Mary's at the beginning of last term.
Dowie has already been busy during the close season bolstering his squad with Julian Speroni, Emmerson Boyce, Mark Hudson, Joonas Kolkka.
