Acquiring multi-function devices is a necessity for normal business operations. These devices enable workers to produce, reproduce and distribute information that is mission critical. However, the necessity and criticality of these devices should not translate into a complicated procurement process that introduces fear, uncertainty, doubt, which can result in additional costs to the government. This guide attempts to demystify the procurement process for multi-function devices and equip the Buyer with a step-by-step
method for how to select the appropriate devices and support services to meet the agency’s operational needs.
When you are deciding to lease or buy equipment for your organization, you will most likely consult FAR 7.401 which will instruct you to consider comparative costs and other factors. Ultimately, the decision to lease or buy depends on an agency’s plans for the items to be acquired along with the agency’s budgetary situation. Unfortunately, Comparative costs and other factors vary from industry-to-industry which can complicate the decision-making process. Comparing the purchase price to the sum of the lease payments is also one of the key steps in your decision to lease or buy. That’s where GSA can help. They have created the following guide and calculating tool to help you decide.

Traveler reimbursement is based on the location of the work activities and not the accommodations, unless lodging is not available at the work activity, then the agency may authorize the rate where lodging is obtained.
Unless otherwise specified, the per diem locality is defined as "all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city, including independent entities located within those boundaries."
Per diem localities with county definitions shall include"all locations within, or entirely surrounded by, the corporate limits of the key city as well as the boundaries of the listed counties, including independent entities located within the boundaries of the key city and the listed counties (unless otherwise listed separately)."
When a military installation or Government - related facility(whether or not specifically named) is located partially within more than one city or county boundary, the applicable per diem rate for the entire installation or facility is the higher of the rates which apply to the cities and / or counties, even though part(s) of such activities may be located outside the defined per diem locality.
