Administrative Code; and Comptroller Memorandums 10 (1992-93), 13 (1985-86), 04 (1995-96),
and 07 (1995-96). The Department of Financial Services (DFS) Finance and Leasing Section
will review proposed leases to determine compliance with all requirements and to ensure leases
are economical and cost effective. The Contractor and Customer (working together) will be
required to complete and submit to DFS the “Application to Lease Equipment (DFS-A1-411)” for
any lease valued at $25,000 or more. A copy of the form may be found on the DFS website:

purchase order referencing this contract number and that incorporates the manufacturer’s lease
