AQIS is a party to the Commonwealth Fleet Management Agreement for the provision of vehicles from Leaseplan Australia Pty Ltd. An individual fixed rate is defined for each sub-agreement (vehicle). Retention of the vehicle past expiry date may result in a new lease sub-agreement.
Leases for office, laboratory or other accommodation. AQIS has leases for accommodation that are subject to adjustments on an annual fixed basis, to market values and to CPI increases. Renewal options vary from 1 to 5 years.
Leases for office or scientific equipment. There are no purchases or renewal options on these leases. Contracts for lease of X-ray machines have no escalation clauses. Most photocopier leases have a clause allowing increases in line with CPI.
