Rate Contract with DGS&D
The present role of the DGS&D is mainly to conclude the
rate contracts to be operated by the consuming departments of the Government for
items of common use. DGS&D has been identifying such items, whose anticipated annual
purchase by Government Organisations is normally more than Rs. 25 lakhs a year,
and bringing such items on rate contract. The purchase policy envisages according
preference to indigenously produced stores vis-à-vis imported stores. DGS&D concludes
rate contracts with manufacturers, as a matter of policy. Only where manufacturer
himself does not market his products, DGS&D entertains sole distributor/ selling
agent in lieu. For imported stores, DGS&D may deal with stockists/ suppliers of
imported stores provided they have proven relationship with the foreign manufacturer
with guarantee of after sale service and supply of spares. Such entities are required
to have adequate infrastructure for after sale service in India.
The DGS&D undertakes pre-despatch inspection of stores
on orders placed by civil indentors on rate contracts. This ensures that stores
actually supplied are strictly as per rate contract specifications & are of proper
quality. The Quality Assurance Wing of the DGS&D also undertakes inspection of the
stores being purchased by Government Departments outside rate contracts on payment
of fees, as also inspection for State Governments/ PSUs & other Government Organisations.
The paying authority in respect of the rate contracts
is the Chief Controller of Accounts (CCA(S)), Department of Commerce (Supply Division).
Subject to adequate safeguards, advance payment upto 98% of the value of the stores
is given to the suppliers on submission of bills in the Offices of the CCA(S). The
policy of making advance payment facilitates cash flow for the industrial units.
