The value of stores property acquired and disposed of shall be recorded in a general ledger control account for stores where the volume of work or other factors necessitate the establishment of a stores account. Unless otherwise directed by the head of each bureau or office, acquisitions of stores property described in the following subsections need not be recorded in a general ledger control account, but may be charged directly to the project benefitted:
(1) Materials and supplies purchased for immediate application on a specific project or job;
(2) Materials and supplies purchased for single purposes, such as those procured against a bill of materials for a specific construction project, even though such materials may be stored for future use, consumption, or installation. In such cases, however, card records showing quantity and descriptive information of the items involved shall be maintained to the extent necessary to ensure proper management and control of such inventories.History: Rule 3-78, eff 17 Apr 78, 300 GASM § 8.1.
