Lessee: University of Virginia
Lessor: A Contracted Financial Institution
Term of Each Individual Lease: Three, five, seven, or ten years; not exceeding useful life of equipment.

Eligible Equipment: Personal property with a fair market value of $10,000 or more and a useful life greater than two years. Like pieces of equipment, individually priced less than $10,000, can be aggregated to exceed the dollar limit provided they are purchased from the same vendor. Equipment partially funded under the Equipment Trust Fund (ETF) is not eligible.
