Local Authority

Local Authorities and Fire Authorities have huge freedom of choice for funding capital expenditure. Under the prudential borrowing code leasing should form part of your treasury policy and be part of any options appraisal undertaken.

UniLink’s lease advisory service incorporates the complete range of functions required to undertake the acquisition and funding of equipment in accordance with Prudential Code and Value for Money criteria. We provide effective management of a Local Authority’s entire lease procurement process.

Using our online lease management system (OLMS) we also provide clients effective management of their existing lease portfolio minimising end of lease costs and maximising any savings available.

Our approach is to ensure value for money, maximising a Local Authority’s and Fire Authority’s financial resources and minimising the associated risks.

Typical assets leased include:

  • Commercial Vehicles
  • Fire & Rescue Vehicles
  • Cars
  • ICT
  • Leisure & Gym Equipment
  • Crematoria
  • Wheeled Bins
  • Furniture
  • Solar PV
  • Grounds Maintenance
