Issue, care, and use of disbursing officers' checks.
[Circular No. 8, second edition.]1
TREASURY DEPARTMENT, July 3, 1915.
To disbursing officers of the United States and others concerned: The following instructions relative to the issue, care, and use of disbursing officers' checks are hereby promulgated:
1. All blank checks on the Treasurer of the United States for use by disbursing officers shall be issued by the Secretary of the Treasury, Division of Printing and Stationery, to whom all correspondence relating thereto should be addressed, and only blank checks thus issued shall be used by disbursing officers in drawing checks on the Treasurer of the United States.
2. The Chief of the Division of Printing and Stationery, as well as others who may distribute blank checks to disbursing officers, shall keep a complete record of the class, numerical symbol, and serial numbers of all checks issued and of the transfer to another disbursing officer or return to the issuing office of unused checks.
3. A disbursing officer receiving a supply of checks shall receipt for the same to the issuing officer, except in case of a new issue on requisition, when no receipt is required. When a disbursing officer is succeeded by another, the officer relieved shall transfer his unused checks to his successor, retaining for file with his official records the register of checks issued. The successor shall use the checks so transferred by striking out the former officer's numerical symbol and inserting his own, except where the officer relieved is merely transferred from one station to another in the same service and is to continue to disburse money under his former numerical symbol, in which case he shall retain the checks issued to him and use them in his new office. If there is a probability that the officer relieved will again disburse under the same symbol number, he should retain his checks. All transfers of checks should be reported to the Chief of the Division of Printing and Stationery as soon as accomplished, in order that the record of checks issued may be corrected. After a transfer is made the new officer should immediately insert his own symbol number on all checks received, and this symbol number should not again be changed. In case a third officer succeeds the second, all checks on hand should be returned to the Chief of the Division of Printing and Stationery for destruction and a new supply obtained. When the location of the disbursing officer printed at the head of the check has been changed once, it should not again be altered, but the checks should
