Since 1984, FSM has been a proven leader in the Federal Financing Market. As a small business, the management team at FSM has over 75 years of Federal financing experience. We continue to support our vendors with the highest level of service throughout the procurement process.
Partnering with FSM can provide Experience and Service that is critical in the overall procurement process. Flexible Terms and our history with the Agency can provide a significant advantage in capturing additional opportunities.
The United States Government is the largest user of goods and services in the world. Through the annual budget process, funds are allocated to acquire needed equipment. For a variety of reasons, these purchase monies are not always available when needed.
A Federal lease or Extended Payment Plan is a viable alternative to an outright purchase. A Base Plus Option Year Contract allows agencies to receive desired equipment while staying within necessary budget constraints. Equipment such as office furniture, computers, medical, communications, software and vehicles can be leased by Government agencies. Government leases are usually 12 to 60 months in length. The Government agency can make payments on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis, for the duration of the lease. Let FSM provide a flexible payment option that best suits all parties involved and continue to be your partner throughout the entire procurement process.
A Lease To Ownership Plan (or Capital Lease) allows the agency to own the equipment at the end of the lease term.
A Lease with the Option to Purchase (or Operating Lease) is an exchange of equipment for payments during the life of the lease.
However, when the lease term matures, the agency has the following options:
An Extended Payment Plan allows the agency to make payments (monthly, quarterly or annually) over time that fits within their budgetary perimeters.
The Federal Government has achieved billions of dollars in savings financing energy projects. Two notable contract vehicles in this market are:
Federal Government agencies have experienced considerable savings for energy projects without the initial outlay of capital and without special Congressional appropriations by utilizing Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs). FSM has extensive experience in providing ESPC contractors with creative and aggressive financing solutions.
Federal agencies regularly utilize the local utilities GSA Areawide Contract to implement energy savings solutions with the Utility Service Provider in its franchised service area. Our experience and competitive rates have enabled us to enter into financing agreements with some of the leading utility contractors.
Can you give me an example of some rates?
We structure and quote each lease opportunity based on its own merits. Since rates can fluctuate based on the term, equipment, user, the market, and numerous other variables, we do not provide rate sheets.
What can you finance?
Equipment ranging from computer, software, medical, telecommunications, vehicles etc. can all be financed depending upon the essential use of the equipment.
Now that I have your information, what is the next step?
Whenever you are aware of a solicitation (whether it be by IFB, RFP, RFQ, Sole Source or other opportunity) contact us, and we will assist you in submitting a response.
We have good credit and can handle our own financing.
When we provide financing for a lease transaction we assume the risk of termination for convenience, non-appropriation, and non-renewal. Your credit lines are also left untouched so you can use them for other needs of your business.
Why utilize FSM?
Our financing is non-recourse. We assume the risk for termination for convenience, non-appropriation, and non-renewal.
What is the difference between your company and other leasing companies?
EXPERIENCE and SERVICE. We have been in business since 1984, focusing on understanding the Federal Acquisition Regulations (F.A.R.) and providing creative financing solutions for our customers. FSM is also not a publicly traded company which allows us flexibility in streamlining the process of Federal leasing. You will have a single point of contact, which will be there to guide you through the entire process. We can even provide leasing workshops to better educate your sales team.
