PURCHASES IN EXCESS OF $50

Attention is invited to the following extracts from recent decisions of the
Comptroller General:
"'* it is fundamental: that there be written evidence of all Government
obligations on which payments are to be made so that the Government be nzot
in t~he position of relying upon thne memory or recollection of some officer or
employee t~o establish the terms of its obligations; and that it is this written.
evidence that, is required to be filed in this office for use in the audit and settlement
of claims and accounts.
"' Attfention is invited, also, to the provisions of section 3743, Revised Statutes,
under which all contracts or agreements for the procurement of supplies should
be reduced to w\riting and filed in this office for consideration in connection wNith
the audit of y.our accounts which this office (General Accounting Office) is
required by la-w to mak~e."
In order to comuply wit~h the comptroller's ruling, it will be necessary in all
cases where the amno~unt of a purchase is more than $50 that the needs be adver-
t.ised and inlformlal bids secured and filed prior to purchase. Several purchases
a few~ days6 apart, t.he total of which amounts to more than $50, are considered
as a single purchase and come under ruling requiring bids. This procedure must
be adhered to even in cases where there is only one person or dealer from whom
the purchase ea n be made. In cases where there is only one dealer within a.
reasonable distance from whom suppi~es and~ services can, be secured, it is held
that the only proper wvay of determining this fact is by advertising, and it is
assumed t.ha't advertising means the same procedure follow~ned whenr actual com-
petition is secured, that is, by circular letters sent to all possible bidders (at least
three), notices posted in public places, or advertisements in t~he newspapers.
Advertising in newspapers canl be done, however, only on specific authorizationl fr~om
the Wtash ington office.

respondent was also advised that unless the matters and things alleged in the
inquiry were admitted or satisfactorily explained in writing a hearing would be
held. It now appears that the respondent has ceased to operate at the various

respondent acknowledged receipt of the inquiry and admitted the truth of the
matters and things therein alleged. On November 5, 1931, t~he Acting Secretary
of Agriculture suspended respondent from registration as a market agency for
six months with leave, how-ever, during said period to apply for revocation of this
suspension upon satisfactory proof that it is then solvent.. It was further
ordered that respondent, cease and desist from doing business as a market agency
while insolvent.
