Rules for Zilla Grandhalaya Samsthas relating to contracts for supply of Materials, Goods and Services
[ G. 0. Ms. No, 317, Education (E).  25th February, 1969 — published at pages 174-177 R. S. to part I of A. P. Gazette dated 15-5-1969].
In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (1) of section 25 of the Andhra Pradesh Public Libraries Act, 1960 (Andhra Pradesh Act 8 of 1960) the Governor of Andhra Pradesh hereby makes the following rules for the making of contracts by the Zilla Grandhalaya Samsthas for supply of materials or goods or for rendering of services.


  1. Every contract for the supply of materials or goods or for rendering of services to the Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha shall be made by calling for tenders, provided that the Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha may provide in its bye-laws, the contracts, for supply of materials or goods or for rendering of services, other than those for the execution of works, the value whereof does not exceed rupees
  2. one thousand in respect of which tenders may be dispensed with. When tenders are invited they shall be tabulated and scrutinized by the Secretary, Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha and placed before the Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha with his recommendations for acceptance. The lowest tender shall ordinarily be accepted. Where it is considered undesirable to accept the lowest tender, the reasons thereof shall be recorded in writing and made available for the purposes of audit.

3. EXPLANATION: Where the lowest tender is in respect of more than one article, for example, stationery articles, the comparative prices rendered may be considered either individually for each   article or conjointly for all the articles or for specified groups of articles,   provided that the intention of the Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha to accept the lowest tender in any of these ways is made clear in the tender notice. If the tender is considered conjointly for all the articles or for groups of articles, the cost of all the   articles, or of all the articles in each group, as the case may be shall be worked out with reference to the rates given in each tender and the lowest tender will be that according to which total cost of the probable requirements of all the articles proposed to be taken together works out to be the lowest.
4.  Where the capacity to supply and the integrity of tender are not known or where they are doubtful, his tender need not necessarily be rejected but such additional security as the Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha or the executive committee, authorised by the Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha in this behalf considers necessary, shall be taken from the tenderer.
5. Where the lowest tender is rejected, the next higher tender shall be accepted, unless there are adequate reasons which should be recorded in writing for rejecting that tender also and the records thereto shall be made avail­able for purposes of audit and inspection.

  1. In no case shall a tender be accepted at rates other than, those specified in that tender. There shall be no avoidable delay in the disposal of   tenders after they are opened.
  2. CD Tenders shall be invited by the Secretary Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha in sealed covers in the most open and public manner possible, and invariably:- by a notice in the language or languages of the district posted at the office of the Zilla Grandhalaya Samstha and at such other places as the Secretary may deem fit;
