(Surplus Property) [Added] CODIFICATION: The War Food Administration was terminated, and its functions transferred to the Secretary of Agriculture, by Executive Order 9577, June 29, 1945, effective at the close of business, June 30, 1945, Title 3, supra.

PART 1700_STATEMENT OF POLI

CIES ON DISPOSAL OF SURPLUS AGRICULTURAL COMMODITIES AND SURPLUS FOODS PROCESSED

of purchasers. 1700.6 Price. 1700.7 Donation and destruction. 1700.8 Consumer protection; inspection,

etc. 1700.9 Sales for export. 1700.10 Sales of commodities abroad. 1700.11 Interpretations, amendments and

implementing regulations. AUTHORITY: 8$ 1700.1 to 1700.11, inclusive, issued under sec. 21 (a), 58 Stat. 775; 50 U.S.C., App. Sup., 1630.

SOURCE: $ $ 1700.1 to 1700.11, inclusive, contained in Regulations, War Food Administrator, Mar. 30, 1945, effective June 29, 1945, 10 F.R. 7900.

$ 1700.1 General purpose and scope. Section 21 (a) of the Surplus Property Act of 1944 makes the War Food Administrator, or his successor, solely responsible, subject to the supervision of the Surplus Property Board, for the formulation of policies with respect to the disposal of surplus agricultural commodities and surplus foods processed from agricultural commodities. This part, issued under section 21 (a), announces the policies which are to be observed by all disposal agencies designated by the Board to handle any of the surplus commodities with respect to which the War Food Administrator has policy making responsibility. These policies are therefore also applicable to the War Food Administration and its various agencies and bureaus insofar as they act as disposal agencies.

$ 1700.2 Relationship to Surplus Property Act and other statements. This part is to be regarded as implementing the provisions, purposes and objectives of the Surplus Property Act of 1944. Failure to include or elaborate on any particular requirement or provision of the act should not, of course, cause it to be concluded that such requirement or provision was intended to be ignored with respect to handling surplus agricultural commodities and surplus foods processed from agricultural commodities.

There is no intention to exclude the applicability of the general policy statements and regulations of the Surplus Property Board. These must also be considered in dealing with surplus agricultural commodities and surplus foods processed from agricultural commodities. Departures from the Surplus Property Board's policies and regulations may be made with respect to such commodities only if explicitly and affirmatively required by the terms of this part. An explicit and affirmative requirement of this character means that the War Food Administrator has determined, with the concurrence of the Surplus Property Board, that such requirement is more appropriate for the particular commodities covered.

$ 1700.3 Methods and procedures. All disposals shall be conducted with fairness and adequate publicity and in a manner compatible with the national interest and economy. Subject to the specific requirements of this part, disposals may be by sale, exchange, lease, or transfer, for cash, credit, or other property, with or without warranty, and upon such other terms and conditions as the disposal agency deems proper.' Disposals may be made without regard

1 See Surplus Property Act, sec. 15 (a) (58 Stat. 772; 50 U.S.C., App. Sup.; 1624).

to any provision of existing law for competitive bidding except when otherwise provided by the Surplus Property Board or by this part. Disposal agencies are, however, charged with the following responsibilities:

(a) To develop comprehensive and understandable disposal procedures, which will operate in a uniform manner and which are widely publicized.

(b) To give adequate advance notice and information of proposed sales and disposals to assure that all those interested have a full opportunity to participate.

(c) To prescribe terms and conditions of sale which are fully disclosed to all prospective buyers in advance and which are not discriminatory between different buyers similarly situated.

(d) To provide reasonable checks and safeguards designed to prevent secretive and discriminatory disposals.

(e) To prepare and maintain adequate records of all disposals.

(f) To answer all reasonable requests for information concerning sales and disposals, including the character of items sold, volume of sales, identity of purchasers and price paid and other terms and conditions of particular sales.

(g) To give regard to established and existing trade practices.

(h) To seek the advice and recommendations of the established industry advisory committees of the War Food Administration on general disposal problems.

(i) To observe all applicable Government regulations and orders with respect to prices, rationing, priorities, and allocations.

(1) To refrain from and provide against diversion of food to non-food uses except where the particular food is in over-supply or is of questionable quality or condition or such diversion is deemed desirable for the war effort.

(k) Such other responsibilities as may be prescribed from time to time by the War Food Administrator or the Surplus Property Board.

$ 1700.4 Time of disposal. Every emphasis should be on promptness of disposal in order to keep deterioration of the commodity to a minimum and to take advantage of the short-supply and high

* See Surplus Property Act, sec. 29 (58 Stat. 781; 50 U.S.C., App. Sup., 1638).

demand condition of the war and immediate post-war markets. Disposals should be delayed intentionally only when necessary to avoid disruption of the market or an unnecessary depression of prices.

$ 1700.5 Priorities, preferences and selection of purchasers. Subject to such regulations as the Surplus Property Board may prescribe in the nature of over-riding priorities or preferences, the following procedure shall be followed in a selection of purchasers:

(a) In the case of surplus foods processed from agricultural commodities, commodities shall be offered whenever it is reasonably practicable in the following order:

(1) To the original vendor or processor

(2) To vendors or processors of like commodities

(3) To wholesale food distributors, chain stores and other trade groups either directly or through the medium of food brokers

(4) To all others, except that sales should be made in such a manner as to discourage speculators

(b) Agricultural commodities to any person except that sales should be made in such a manner as to discourage speculators.

Within the foregoing groups efforts shall be made to give small buyers or small business an equal opportunity with large buyers.

Generally the quantity or size of the lot to be sold at any given time should be determined by sound business and commercial practice.

3 Section 21 (c) of the Surplus Property Act provides that surplus farm commodities are not to be sold in the United States (except for export) in quantities in excess of those in which they may be sold by Commodity Credit Corporation. The only quantitative restriction on Commodity Credit Corporation is to be found in section 381 (c) of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, which prohibits the sale of more than 300,000 bales of cotton in any calendar month, or more than 1,500,000 bales in any calendar year. See 52 Stat. 66, 7 U. S. C. 1381 (c). However, section 2 of Public Law 30, April 12, 1945, suspends section 381 (c) until the expiration of the two-year period beginning with the first day of January immediately following the date on which the President, by proclamation, or the Congress, by concurrent resolution declares that hostilities in the present war have terminated.
