DIR conducted a study of the issue of leasing versus purchasing information technologies as directed by the General Appropriations Act of the 75th Legislature. One of the Legislature's requirements was the development of guidelines for making the lease versus purchase decision to be used by state agencies in evaluating cost alternatives.
