This form provides detailed justification for the budget request for equipment. Estimates for these and other equipment should be based on current GSA prices (which may be obtained from the office of material management) plus an inflation factor of 8%. If the request is for the replacement of an old piece of equipment, the item being replaced must be described to include the year and make, present condition, and a cost benefit analysis between retaining, renting a new one from a private firm, and buying a new piece of equipment. If the request is for a new piece of equipment, state specifically the need for it, describe what is being done now without it and the effectiveness of the present method, and the net effect if the request was not approved.History: Rule 3-83, eff 4 Apr 83, § E.4 (part).
