   SPECIAL ITEM NUMBER 629 05 – Maintenance, Rental and Lease of Material Handling Equipment
                                and/or Warehouse Equipment
                                                       Leasing/Rental
(If you are offering Leasing or Rental under this SIN, complete and submit Attachment 12, Terms and Conditions
                                        Applicable to Leasing and Rentals)
Agreement is for lease/rental only. Government will not acquire title to any equipment leased/rented. Equipment will be
leased/rented for the life of the lease/rental arrangement as specified in the delivery order. The initial term of the leasing
agreement is from the date of the equipment acceptance through September 30 of the fiscal year in which the order is
placed, unless the ordering office has funding which exceeds a Government fiscal year. Leases/rentals executed shall be
on the basis that the known requirements exceed the initial leasing term of twelve (12) months, or the remainder of the
fiscal year. Renewal of a lease/rental will be subject to availability of funding. The Government has the option to renew
each year at the original lease monthly charge in effect at the time the leasing order is placed. If the Government
exercises its option to renew the leasing order, as renewed, it shall include an option to renew until the expiration of the
leasing agreement.
Prior to the placement of an order under this Special Item Number, the Government ordering office and the contractor
must agree on a ―base value‖ for the products to be leased/rented. For Lease to Ownership, the base value will be the
contract purchase price (less any discounts). For Lease With Option to Purchase, the base value will be the agreed upon
purchase price, less a mutually agreed upon residual value for the products. The residual value will be used in the
calculation of the original lease payment, lease extension payments, and the purchase option price.
Equipment leased/rented under this agreement may be terminated at any time during the fiscal year. Equipment shall
always remain the property of the Contractor. The Government shall have no right or interest in the equipment, except as
provided in the leasing agreement, and shall hold the equipment subject and subordinate to the rights of the Contractor.
Suggested leasing options are: Lease to Ownership; Lease With Option to Purchase; and/or Short-
Term Lease (Rental for Daily-8 hrs, Weekly-40 hrs and Monthly-160 hrs).




                                                 Maintenance Agreements
The Government may obtain maintenance from the Contractor. When maintenance is to be performed by the Contractor,
the payments, terms and conditions will be as stated in this contract and are separate from the leasing arrangement/cost.
Maintenance payments and terms and conditions during subsequent renewal periods of this lease/rental will be those of
the prevailing GSA Schedule contract in effect. The Contractor shall honor orders for maintenance for the duration of the
contract period. Maintenance service shall commence on a mutually agreed upon date, which will be written into the
maintenance order. Maintenance may be discontinued by the Government on thirty (30) calendar days written notice, or
shorter notice when agreed to by the Contractor; such notice to become effective thirty (30) calendar days from the date
on the notification. However, the Government may extend the original discontinuance date upon written notice to the
Contractor, provided that such notice is furnished at least ten (10) calendar days prior to the original discontinuance date.
1. ANNUAL FUNDING
When annually appropriated funds are cited on a maintenance order, the period of maintenance shall automatically expire
on September 30th of the contract period, or at the end of the contract period, whichever occurs first. Renewal of a
maintenance order citing the new appropriation shall be required, if maintenance is to continue during any remainder of the
contact period.
2. CROSS-YEAR FUNDING WITHIN CONTRACT PERIOD.
Where an ordering office’s specific appropriation authority provides for funds in excess of a 12-month fiscal year period,
the ordering office may place an order under this schedule contract for a period up to the expiration of the contract period,
notwithstanding the intervening fiscal years.
4. TERMINATION
Ordering offices should notify the Contractor in writing thirty (30) calendar days prior to the expiration of maintenance
service, if maintenance is to be terminated at that time. Orders for continued maintenance will be required if maintenance
is to be continued during the subsequent period.
5. RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE GOVERNMENT

   under the purview of a maintenance order, unless agreed to by the Contractor.
b. The Government will operate and permit operation of the equipment only within its rated capacity, refraining from
   altering the equipment without owner’s written consent and prohibit and prevent anyone who is not trained or
   authorized from making any repairs or adjustment to the equipment.
6. RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CONTRACTOR
The Contractor shall bear all costs of maintenance, including labor, parts, and such other expenses as are necessary to
keep the equipment in good operating condition, provided that the required repairs are not occasioned by fault or
negligence of the Government.

7. INVOICES AND PAYMENTS

   completion of such period. Maintenance charges must be paid in arrears. Prompt payment discount, if applicable, shall

    sales. If you have not made sales to the Federal Government for the items offered, provide your best estimate of
    anticipated sales under any resultant contract.

(3) See Figure 515.4-2 for additional explanation. Also, please refer to Clause 552.212-70 in the Basic Solicitation
    Document for definitions of ―concession‖ and ―discount.‖

(4) (a) The information provided in this chart should reflect the discounts, terms and conditions offered to your most
        favored commercial customers. Information should be provided for all customers who receive terms equal to or
        better than those offered the Government.

         Column 1 – Customer is the category of customer (i.e., dealers, distributors, etc.) who receive the terms being
         disclosed.
         Column 2 – This column should reflect the basic discount(s) granted to this category of customer. A basic
         discount is any discount offered without regard for quantity (i.e., for a quantity of one). For example, dealers
         receive a 30% discount. If you do not offer any basic discounts, insert ―NONE.‖
         Column 3 – This column should reflect any quantity or volume discounts granted to this customer category. For
         example, a discount of 40% is offered when 20+ units are purchased, OR a discount of 40% is offered when the
         net order exceeds $20,000.00.
         Column 4 – This column should reflect the FOB Terms (Freight Terms) granted to this customer. For example,
         FOB Origin (Plant), FOB Origin Freight Prepaid and Allowed, or FOB Destination.
         Column 5 – This column should reflect any other terms or conditions, not previously listed, which are offered to
         this category of customer. For example, any prompt-payment terms, aggregate discount terms, enhanced or
         additional services offered, etc..

   (b) If you have deviations from your written policies or standard commercial sales practices disclosed in the
       above chart which result in better discounts (lower prices) or concessions than indicated, then those
       must be explained in accordance with the instructions at Figure 515.

    obtain written authorization from the manufacturer(s) for Government access, at any time before award or

                            Figure 515.4-2—Instructions for Commercial Sales Practices Format

If you responded ―YES‖ to question (3), on the COMMERCIAL SALES PRACTICES FORMAT, complete the chart in
question (4)(a) for the customer(s) who receive your best discount. If you responded ―NO‖ complete the chart in question
(4)(a) showing your written policies or standard sales practices for all customers or customer categories to whom you sell
at a price (discounts and concessions in combination) that is equal to or better than the price(s) offered to the Government
under this solicitation or with which the Offeror has a current agreement to sell at a discount which equals or exceeds the
discount(s) offered under this solicitation. Such agreement shall be in effect on the date the offer is submitted or contain
an effective date during the proposed multiple award schedule contract period. If your offer is lower than your price to
other customers or customer categories, you will be aligned with the customer or category of customer that receives your
best price for purposes of the Price Reduction clause at 552.238-75. The Government expects you to provide information
required by the format in accordance with these instructions that is, to the best of your knowledge and belief, current,
accurate, and complete as of 14 calendar days prior to its submission. You must also disclose any changes in your price
list(s), discounts and/or discounting policies which occur after the offer is submitted, but before the close of negotiations.
If your discount practices vary by model or product line, the discount information should be by model or product line as
appropriate. You may limit the number of models or product lines reported to those which exceed 75% of actual historical
Government sales (commercial sales may be substituted if Government sales are unavailable) value of the special item
number (SIN).

Column 1—Identify the applicable customer or category of customer. A "customer" is any entity, except the Federal
Government, which acquires supplies or services from the Offeror. The term customer includes, but is not limited to
original equipment manufacturers, value added resellers, state and local governments, distributors, educational institutions
(an elementary, junior high, or degree granting school which maintains a regular faculty and established curriculum and an
organized body of students), dealers, national accounts, and end users. In any instance where the Offeror is asked to
disclose information for a customer, the Offeror may disclose information by category of customer if the offeror's discount
policies or practices are the same for all customers in the category. (Use a separate line for each customer or category of
customer.)

Column 2—Identify the discount. The term ―discount‖ is as defined in solicitation clause 552.212-70, Preparation of
Offer (Multiple Award Schedule). Indicate the best discount (based on your written discounting policies or standard
commercial discounting practices if you do not have written discounting policies) at which you sell to the customer or
category of customer identified in column 1, without regard to quantity; terms and conditions of the agreements under
which the discounts are given; and whether the agreements are written or oral. Net prices or discounts off of other price
lists should be expressed as percentage discounts from the price list which is the basis of your offer. If the discount
disclosed is a combination of various discounts (prompt payment, quantity, etc.), the percentage should be broken out for
each type of discount. If the price lists which are the basis of the discounts given to the customers identified in the chart
are different than the price list submitted upon which your offer is based, identify the type or title and date of each price list.
The contracting officer may require submission of these price lists. To expedite evaluation, offerors may provide these
price lists at the time of submission.

Column 3—Identify the quantity or volume of sales. Insert the minimum quantity or sales volume which the identified
customer or category of customer must either purchase/order, per order or within a specified period, to earn the discount.
When purchases/orders must be placed within a specified period to earn a discount indicate the time period.

Column 4—Indicate the FOB delivery term for each identified customer. See FAR 47.3 for an explanation of FOB
delivery terms.

Column 5—Indicate concessions regardless of quantity granted to the identified customer or category of
customer. Concessions are defined in solicitation clause 552.212-70, Preparation of Offers (Multiple Award Schedule). If
the space provided is inadequate, the disclosure should be made on a separate sheet by reference.

If you respond ―YES‖ to question 4 (b) in the Commercial Sales Practices Format, provide an explanation of the
circumstances under which you deviate from your written policies or standard commercial sales practices disclosed in the
chart on the Commercial Sales Practices Format and explain how often they occur. Your explanation should include a
discussion of situations that lead to deviations from standard practice, an explanation of how often they occur, and the
controls you employ to assure the integrity of your pricing. Examples of typical deviations may include, but are not limited
to, one time goodwill discounts to charity organizations or to compensate an otherwise disgruntled customer; a limited sale

of obsolete or damaged goods; the sale of sample goods to a new customer; or the sales of prototype goods for testing
purposes.

If deviations from your written policies or standard commercial sales practices disclosed in the chart on the Commercial
Sales Practices Format are so significant and/or frequent that the Contracting Officer cannot establish whether the price(s)
offered is fair and reasonable, then you may be asked to provide additional information. The Contracting Officer may ask
for information to demonstrate that you have made substantial sales of the item(s) in the commercial market consistent
with the information reflected on the chart on the Commercial Sales Practice Format, a description of the conditions
surrounding those sales deviations, or other information that may be necessary in order for the Contracting Officer to
determine whether your offered price(s) is fair and reasonable. In cases where additional information is requested, the
Contracting Officer will target the request in order to limit the submission of data to that needed to establish the
reasonableness of the offered price.
