This document in reference to a letter of February 25, 1947, forwarding for an advance decision as to whether certification thereof for payment is authorized, bureau voucher No. 13888, in the sum of $3,842.51 in favor of McKensie County Grasing Association, Watford City, North Dakota, covering payment for a number of earth fill dams and dugouts constructed for the Soil Conservation Service under contract No. Asc (NB-0)-6931, dated September 23, 1946.

In view of all the facts appearing with respect to this award of this particular contract, and inasmuch as the required work has been satisfactorily completed, and the contractor has paid the minimum wage rates prevailing in the locality, this office will not be required to object to the payment proposed on the voucher submitted with the letter because of the failure to comply with the cited statutory requirements.
