Purposes: Adequate records accounting for the City's property will afford an opportunity for effecting economies in the acquisition of new property and will result in the strict accountability of any person or agency charged with City property. To achieve this goal, the Director of Finance is required to maintain a perpetual inventory of unissued stores of the City and to install an accounting system whereby the status of such inventories will be maintained currently and will be known to his office. This system of inventory accounting is to include a physical inventory at least twice a year to assure its accuracy. A similar inventory procedure is required of every officer and agency of the City having furniture and equipment in his or its possession.
