Commercial Leasing

Commercial leases shall only be used when that approach has been determined to be the most cost-effective alternative to providing customer support. Otherwise, only NASA-owned and GSA vehicles will be utilized. Commercial leases should be established when determined to be cost effective Recurrent use of commercial rentals/leases (i.e. “back to back”) to bypass standard acquisition procedures and TV standards is strictly prohibited. The CTO shall be notified regarding all commercial leases and shall track the types, quantities, and duration of such leases in order to evaluate the need for additional vehicle resources for the Center. See paragraph 1.3.6 and chapter 10 and 11 for more details on vehicle assignment for contractors.
