The General Services Administration (GSA) provides federal agencies with a new system for procuring short-term equipment rentals.
Appropriately called the Short-Term Rental Program, the program was established in 2012 to supply federal agencies with short-term and temporary equipment to complete an organization’s mission.
The benefits of the GSA Short-Term Rental (STR) program include:
- GSA handles the entire procurement process.
- Every request is competed to obtain the lowest rate possible.
- An online request system is available 24/7.
- Eliminate ownership and maintenance costs for vehicles/equipment used infrequently.
- Always have the right equipment for the mission.
- Fuel cards are available.
- Rentals are tax-exempt.
GSA’s STR program maintains pre-negotiated daily, weekly and monthly rates for more than 200 types of aerial, material handling, earth moving, compaction and small equipment, as well as trucks, water trucks, generators, pumps, light towers and compressors. When equipment is needed, federal customers submit a request through the STR system to obtain quotes from several equipment rental companies participating in the STR program.
Participating GSA program rental companies have undergone a lengthy and in-depth screening process, completing more than 200 pages of documentation and inspections by GSA officials. The vetting process also includes past performance reviews from existing customers, submitting a small-business subcontracting plan, and having a plan to market its services to federal agencies.
Authorized GSA equipment rental companies can be found in the GSA eLibrary.
A GSA vendor since January 4, 2009, Neff Rental recently renewed its GSA contract for another five-year term. Neff Rental branches rent equipment through GSA programs and, because of the selection process, federal agencies and GSA prime contractors have the assurance that they are getting quality and reliable equipment at a competitive price.
