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.

116 BUREAU OF ANTVI~AL INDUSTRY [NovemIber

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
stockyards mentioned in the inquiry and does not expect to renew its operations
either as a market agency or dealer at any posted stockyards. Accordingly, on
November 18, 1931, the Acting Secretary of Agriculture ordered that the proceed-
ings be dismissed without prejudice.i So Cm sin are gcy

issued an inquiry alleging that respondent had violated Title III of the packers

as they became due in the usual course of business. On October 6, 1931, the
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.

N~ebr., was posted as c~ominig within the jurisdiction of the packers and stock-

PURCHASES IN EXCESS OF $50 Attention is invited to the following extracts from recent decisions o f the Comptroller General: "* * * it i s fundamental that there be written evidence of all Government obligations on which payments are to be made so that the Government be not in the position o f relying upon the memory or r ecollection of some o fficer or employee to establish t h e terms of its obligations; and that i t i thi s written evidence that is required to be tiled in this office for use in the audit and settlement of claims and accounts. "Attention 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 writing and filed in this office for con sideration i n connection with the audit of your accounts which this office (General Accounting Office ) i s required by law to make." In order to comply with the comptroller' s ruling, it will be necessary in all cases where the amount of a purchase i s more than $50 that the needs be advertised and informal bids secured and filed prior to purchase. Several purchas e s a few days apart, the total of which amounts to more than $50, are cons idered as a single purchase and come under ruling requiring bids. This procedure mus t be adhered to even in cases where there is only one person or dealer from whom the purchase can be made. In cases where there is only one d ealer within a reasonable distance from whom supplies and services can be secured, it i s h e ld that the onl y proper way of determining this fact is by advertising, and it i assumed that adverti sing means the same procedure followed when actual c ompetition is secured, that i s, by circular letters sent to all possible bidders (at least three) , notices posted in public places, or advertisements in the n ewspaper . Adv e rtisin g in n e wspapers can be done, howev er, only on spe cific authorizat i on from the Washington offic e .
