(See § 802.292.)

The headers and individual strips will be assembled into pages by use of crinkly "draftsman's type” Scotch tape. The pages will not be numbered. Total dollar value will be shown at the bottom of the last page submitted for each headquarters. This total will include only the total of the individual figures reported. No contract will be included in this report the original value of which does not exceed $150,000. Supplements, including increases, decreases or cancellations, will not be reported. No contract will be reported which had an original value of $150,000 or less but which, by reason of supplements, has been increased to a figure in excess of $150,000. Purchases Division will assemble the various reports submitted by the technical services and the service commands into one report which will be submitted to Congress. Subsequent to the preparation of this completed report by the Purchases Division the pages will be returned to the submitted headquarters for dis-assembly and filing of the individual strips for future reference. If no contract in excess of $150,000 has been let during the period a negative report will be submitted.

$ 802.296 Stations required to report, (a) Except as noted below, it is the responsibility of every station to which a reallocation, allotment, or suballotment has been made and which is located within the continental limits of the United States or in the Northwest Seryice Command to make reports of purchase actions. Stations under the juris

diction of the commanding generals of the Army Ground Forces and the Defense Commands and all stations outside the continental limits of the United States (except those in the Northwest Service Command) are not required to make such reports.

(b) Reports by exempted and non-exempted stations: Both individual Purchase Action Reports and Monthly Summary Reports will be submitted to the chiefs of the various technical services, for all contracts numbered as technical service contracts in accordance with $ 803.309 (b). This will apply to all types of installations, whether Class I, II, III or IV. No stations are to submit any Purchase Action Reports whatsoever direct to the Purchases Division, Headquarters, Army Service Forces.

(c) Transmission of reports by functional staff divisions: Functional staff divisions, Army Service Forces, and stations under their jurisdiction will submit Purchase Action Reports in the same manner as chiefs of technical services and stations under the jurisdiction of the chiefs of technical services: Provided, however, That one copy of each report forwarded will be retained by the office of the functional staff division involved, and the original and 4 copies will be forwarded from the office of such division to the Commanding General, Army Service Forces, attention Purchases Division, within 5 days from the date of action. The chiefs of the functional staff divisions will be responsible for complete, accurate, proper and timely submission of such reports. Nothing contained in this subpart, however, shall require the preparation or submission of any individual or summary reports from or with respect to purchase actions of Army Exchange Service.

(d) Reports not to be duplicated: When a formal contract is executed coyering a previously reported purchase action (such as a preliminary contractual agreement) no additional purchase action will be filled. Likewise, a purchase order is to be reported only when it is the original purchase action on the item in question. A delivery order is not to be reported when it is an order placed against an existing transaction previously reported as a purchase action. [Proc. Reg. 2, revised to June 29, 1944, 9 F.R. 8370, as amended by C 41, Oct. 5, 1944, 9 F.R. 12244]

$ 802.297 Signing of reports. Reports should be signed by some responsible oficer.
