    Abstract

    Procurement of petroleum products, as well as all other materials for the Naval services, is made by the Bureau of Supplies and Accounts. The process or mechanics of the procurement consists essentially of seven steps; namely, (1) determining the needs of the service for the material, (2) obtaining specifications which define the product desired, (3) preparation of schedules or proposals, (4) advertising or forwarding of schedules to qualified bidders, (5) awarding of contract, (6) inspection of material to determine its compliance with contract specifications, and (7) distribution of the petroleum products to the using activities. The requirements are divided into three different groups, continental U. S., marine bunker, and off-shore, each of which is determined and handled separately. Marine bunker and continental U. S. requirements of the Navy Department and of other departments of the Government which procure under Navy contracts are estimated from replies to questionnaires circulated to the various activities, and from stock reports furnished quarterly by the different Naval stocking depots and shipyards.
