...if they need a copier, then buy one...

I believe that was addressed by DKS.

i already said i understand the current process...it is the current process that is costing us a fortune in waste...my point is, it needs to be like i suggested...if you don't need a copier, don't buy one, if you do, then buy one...either the money is saved and can pay down our debt, or surpluses could be split (50% to debt, 50% to programs)...that was my point.

IMO there should be a minimum office budget for each department then a general budget for office equipment canada wide... to access the canada wide budget for office equipment you must show that you need the item and it must be approved

exactly...that's my point...the system itself is designed to waste money...with escalating budgets and increasing debt/deficits, we should be focused on cutting waste.

Which can take months. But an office needs a copier today.

and that happens in the real world, likely every day.

of course, one possibility could be they lease the machines with a service contract...that way, they pay a monthly fee for use of the machine, and if there is a problem, a guy comes out right away to fix or replace it...that's how most companies i worked at did it.

Leasing makes the most sense, except that the many of these copier leases require you to buy their supplies from the vendor (at inflated prices) .

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

And that is the way it is most often done. But not always and not with all equipment.

Many Federal Gov't Departments do exactly that these days.
