Purchases of Ironmongery not subject to Public tender.

The cost of these works has been partly met by the under-expenditure on

Minor Works," which head shows a saving of 1,4991. 6s. 8d. on a vote of 2,1001.

4. In the course of my examination it was noticed that, whereas the supplies of Cabinet Ironmongery are obtained under competitive tender, the supplies of Furnishing Ironmongery, which exceed the former considerably in total value, are obtained from one retail'tirm in London and are not made the subject of public tender.

In answer to inquiries on the subject, I was informed that the rates charged are governed by a schedule of prices which is revised periodically, the rates being subjected to a very critical examination and comparison with those of other reliable firms, and further, that so soon as the difficulty of obtaining the necessary storage accommodation can be overcome, the Board will be in a position to invite tenders from manufacturers for general supplies. 5. The Amount to be Surrendered is, as shown by the Account, 2041. 3s. 11d.
