On the Effectiveness of Federal Equipment Screening Requirements.
Mears, David F.; Sellers, William
SRA Journal of the Society of Research Administrators, v24 n2 p17-28 Fall 1992
A study found that formal federally mandated equipment screening requirements are negligible in meeting their stated objectives of preventing purchase of unnecessary/duplicative equipment. Savings resulting from purchases not made represented under 0.008 percent of all federal dollars used to purchase equipment, with $10.35 spent for every dollar saved by screening equipment.
