AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE STATE TREASURER TO PAY $9,438. TO VANTASYLAND FOR WORK PERFORMED AT THE REQUEST OF THE DIVISION OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION.

WHEREAS, the purpose of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation is to help the physically handicapped return to the job market; and

WHEREAS, two clients of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation are paraplegics confined to wheelchairs and need modifications to their vans in order to commute to their jobs; and

WHEREAS, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation entered into a contract with Vantasyland whereby Vantasyland supplied parts and service in the amount of $9,438. in modifying these two vans; and

WHEREAS, the money for this type of expenditure is available and has been budgeted by the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation for this installation; and

WHEREAS, the Secretary of Finance has refused to approve the payment of this debt because the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation failed to submit a proper purchase order prior to the work being performed, and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation failed to follow the bid laws of the State of Delaware.

NOW, THEREFORE:

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. The State Treasurer is authorized to pay $9,438. to Vantasyland for work performed at the request of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, notwithstanding the failure of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation to comply with the State bid laws and its failure to submit a proper purchase order prior to work being performed.
