1. The purpose of Part I, Military Works, 1 November 1946, of Chapter VII, Procurement, Contracts, and Claims, Orders and Regulations, is to prescribe the authorities and to present, as completely as practicable, the fundamental legislative and administrative requirements and the procedures to be followed in making purchases, letting contracts, settling claims, and litigation in connection with military procurement, including construction. All applicable War Department regulations are incorporated or referred to and will be maintained current by the issuance of changes as required. Decisions of the courts and the Comptroller General pertinent to the subject matter are cited or quoted. Current orders and directives of other departments and agencies, which affect the subject matter, will be published by changes where necessary.

2. It will be noted that section 15 is followed by section 20, sections 16 to 19, inclusive, have been reserved to cover additional sections that may be added from time to time to War Department Procurement Regulations. At present War Department Procurement Regulations run from section 1 through section 15. For example, if a new section 16 were added to War Department Procurement Regulations and implementation of such section was considered necessary in Orders and Regulations, a corresponding section 16 would be added to part I, chapter VII. It should be further noted that several paragraph numbers have been reserved in the various sections of part I. These paragraph numbers have been reserved primarily because it is intended to insert additional material at a future date.
