Subject:  Accounting Instructions for the use of Drafts on
Effective September 1, C.I.B.C. Money Orders will be replaced
by Drafts on Treasurer (DOTTs) which are negotiable instruments drawn on the Treasurer, Canadian Pacific Limited.  While
accounting procedures outlined below remain essentially the
same as those for money orders, there have been minor changes
which effect reporting to this office and local Data Centres.
Further revised accounting instructions for handling DOTfs,
including the use of a new input form to replace the D0601,
will be issued in the near future.
Accounting Procedures
1) White copies of D0T!s are to be forwarded daily to the
Assistant Treasurer Banking, Toronto, however will continue to be accounted for on a weekly basis on form
D0601.  Please ensure your agency number which has been
changed to correspond to your responsibility number,
followed by your location has been entered in box entitled "Originating Office/Bureau dTorigineM.  A ten digit
reference code space has been provided on the DOT and
can be used to further identify the payment or for your
own internal control purposes.  There are no Accounting
Requirements as far as this space is concerned.
2) Prepare form D0601 in duplicate using separate forms
for U.S. and Canadian DOT'S.
3) When DOTfs are issued they should be listed in DOT number and date order on this form with a brief description
of the payment.  Agents v/ho forward D0601rs to Data
Centres for accounting should continue to show a Responsibility Code and Expenditure Code with the description.
. .V./2 - _- -
4) Show CANCELLED opposite numbers that have been voided;
it is important that all DOTfs are accounted for.
5) Show total U.S. or Canadian DOTTs issued on line provided and total U.S. or Canadian dollar value.
6) Attach related certified invoices to the D0601.  Because DOT!s are produced only in three parts it is
not necessary to include a copy as was previously
done with money orders.  However the second green
copy must be retained for your records along with a
copy of the corresponding D0601.
A daily report is no longer required by the Assistant
Treasurer, Banking and it will therefore not be
necessary to include forms 1177 or 1178 .with the
7) Form D0601 must be approved by an authorized employee
whose name and specimen signature have been given to
the Treasury Department for the approval of DOT'S.
8) Prepare a voucher in favour of Assistant Treasurer
Banking, Toronto for the total value of DOT'S listed
on form D0601 showing in the "Statement of Account"
R8 General Disbursement DOT'S
Regional Mgr. M & S
Dist. Mgr.    M & S
Credit Account Z75470
Attach the original D0601 and supporting invoices to
the Voucher Docket and forward to Manager Disbursement Accounting in the usual manner.
...-a/3 - 3 -
NOTE: This applies only to Data Centres and Agents who
normally submit vouchers to Disbursement Accounting.  Agents who were submitting DO601's directly
to their local Data Centre for voucher preparation
should continue to do so.
• *
The maximum value of an individual DOT has been set at $500
rather than the $250 previously in effect for CIBC money
orders.  This higher value was implemented only to compensate
for general price increases over the past few years and in
no way changes their intended use.  DOT'S should not, under
normal circumstances be used for caretaker service, outside
aid, material purchases or any other item covered by regular
terms of purchases.  If bills are approved promptly and
handled through normal channels most due dates can be easily
met.  DOT'S should only be used in real emergencies; when
discounts may be lost or penalties incurred because of late
payment or when it is impractical to use a pay voucher or
purchase material through the merchants' invoice procedure.

Date   MONTREAL, April 12, 1976 File: B 01-97-20
From   P. E. Le Feuvre
To   Mr. W. J. Comerford, Manager, Customer and Agency Accounts
I refer to your memorandum of April 7, file G-00-710-J
concerning audit of the Agency at New Westminster, B.C.
With regard to the issuance of Drafts on Treasurer, the
instructions to agencies located outside the center of
Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg or Vancouver is that they may
issue two Drafts to any one payee; i.e. to a total value
of $10 #000>00 while the instructions to agents located in
tfi5^88BSSr'!,of. the aformentioned cities is that one Draft
only may be issued to one payee i.e. total value $5,000.00.
The reason for this is that cheques for larger values may
only be obtained from Data Centers or from this office and
when the agency is not located within a reasonably close
area it is felt th$t he should be authorized to issue Drafts
for a slightly larger value to ensure that payment is made
as quickly as possible.
