Dear Myron:


I have discussed with John Duddy, and we find, that it
for the average person to secure a performance bond in
the District surplus property. The problems as we see


is most difficult
order to bid on
them are as follows:


It has been our experience at the previous surplus property sales that only
a select few bidders are "eligible" to participate in the bidding due to the
performance bond requirement which we impose.

Even in cases where the people were willing to go through the "red tape"
involved, they found that even though they had excellent credit they could
not secure a performance bond because they had no specific experience in
the wrecking or house-moving business.

In the majority of our disposal contracts time is not of the essence, the
clearing of the right of way is not essential, and the fact that a licensed,
bonded, insured corporation is doing the work under a performance bond renders
no benefit to us.

If it were possible to waive the bond requirement, we would get more partici-
pation on the part of the general public, and probably realize a greater
return to the District.

In contracts where time is of the essence and proper cleanup methods and
safety precautions are a must, we could still use our standard contract and
performance bond.

If it were possible to waive the performance bond requirement, we could
specify payment in advance as full consideration, and if the parties did
not remove the items by a required date we could iesell or leave them for
the project contractor.

We would appreciate your decision on the above at your earliest possible
convenience.

Sincerely your
