CHAPTER 535

AN ACT AUTHORIZING AND MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE STATE PERSONNEL COMMISSION TO PAY CERTAIN OBLIGATIONS INCURRED IN A PRIOR FISCAL YEAR AND WAIVING THE STATE BIDDING CODE AND CERTAIN OTHER FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS.

WHEREAS, the State Personnel Commission did enter into a valid contractural agreement with The Jacobs Company, Inc., on April 28, 1967, to perform a personnel study; and

WHEREAS, funds were properly encumbered in May, 1967, to provide payment for said contractural services; and

WHEREAS, sufficient monies remained encumbered through Fiscal Year 1968 to provide for the final payment on said contract; and

WHEREAS, payment on the final invoice was withheld by the State Personnel Commission which inadvertently allowed the encumbered funds to revert to the General Fund on July 1, 1968; and

WHEREAS, The Jacobs Company, Inc., does, in fact, still have a valid claim of $3,339.99 against the State of Delaware, under the terms of the Original contract;

NOW, THEREFORE,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. The State Personnel Commission is hereby authorized and directed to pay the sum of $3,339.99 from funds herein appropriated, to The Jacobs Company, Inc., for work performed for said agency during the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1967.

Section 2. For the purpose of making this payment the provisions of Chapter 69, Title 29, Delaware Code (Bidding laws), and Chapter 65, Title 29, Delaware Code, are hereby waived to the extent necessary to carry out the purpose of this Act.

Section 3. This Act is a supplementary appropriation and the money appropriated shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of funds in the General Fund of the State of Delaware not otherwise appropriated.

Approved June 9, 1970.
