Supply Department is authorized to obligate a 10 percent increase on material
reservations to cover price increases on the entire material list, except that
on local purchase items the 10 percent limitations apply on a line item basis.

Department's responsibility. Reporting of, and accounting for, material costs
are Fiscal Office responsibilities. The continued cooperation of both is
needed for accurate and timely material cost reporting. As noted in the
NAVCOMPT Manual, it is most important that job orders be closed out and
reported on Tabulated Report B promptly upon completion of the work.
Therefore, in many instances it will be necessary to use material commitments
or obligations data rather than to delay reporting final job costs pending
receipt of final expenditure data. For example, this procedure may be used
frequently for direct-procurement material that comes from outside purchase
sources when the Fiscal Office must await the arrival of an abstracted public
voucher from the Navy Regional Finance Office. Separate cost reporting is
generally in effect for shop-stores material and direct-procurement material.
