As a purchase card holder in Engineering there is a limit of $2500 for services. Equipment rental fall under that category. For construction projects we use local rental companies for heavy requipment. In order to stay under the $2500 limit we frequently have to turn in equipment before the project is finished which means having to pay duplicate delivery, pick up charges and delivery fuel charges.
Locally in Salt Lake City t hat is 115.00 every time we have to turn in and reissue equipment. My suggestion is to increase the dollar amound of "Services" to include rental to $3500. This would save the government millions of dollars
