TITLE XLIII.—Public contracts.

Sections
3709. Advertisements for proposals.

SEC. 3709

All purchases and contracts for supplies or services, in any of the Departments of the Government, except for personal services, shall be made by advertising a sufficient time previously for proposals respecting the same, when the public exigencies do not require the immediate delivery of the articles, or performance of the service. When immediate delivery or performance is required by the public exigency, the articles or service required may be procured by open purchase or contract, at the places and in the manner in which such articles are usually bought and sold, or such services engaged, between individuals.


NOTE.—For subsequent provisions on this subject see March 3, 1875, sec. 9 (post page 25), and March 3, 1877 (post page 27). Provisions for advertisement are contained in each of the annual appropriation acts, so that this section is of little value. (See March 3, 1901, post page 112.)
