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 tir'm 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.
