On occasions when long-term leasing is deemed necessary, i.e., to meet recruiting schedules, the University will engage the services of a pre-qualified vendor to meet the demands of that department. A long-term lease is defined as a length of time greater than five (5) days. In extenuating circumstances a vehicle may be deemed necessary to an individual if the extended time is greater than twenty-four (24) hours.

Upon written approval from an area Vice President the Procurement Office will contact a recognized vendor from COWC, OSD or MHEC to arrange for delivery of a vehicle to meet the identified needs. A compact car will be provided in most cases; if a group of more than five (5) a larger vehicle will be considered.
