THE QUESTIONS DEAL WITH MECHANIZATION OF PROCEDURES, MODIFICATION OF FORMS AND RECORD-KEEPING, SIMPLIFIED BUDGET CONTROL, MISCELLANEOUS ARRANGEMENTS TO CONSERVE THE TIME OF THE ENGINEER.

BOTH CENTRALIZATION AND DECENTRALIZATION OF ACCOUNTING AND BUDGET PROCEDURES WERE NOTED TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY, WHICH IS ATTRIBUTED TO DIFFERENCES IN STATE REGULATIONS.
