  Jefferson's Big Deal: the Louisiana Purchase
Though rumors of the purchase preceded notification from Monroe and Livingston, their message reached Washington in time for an official announcement on July 4, 1803.
The purchase treaty had to be ratified by the end of October, which gave Jefferson and his Cabinet time to deliberate the issues of boundaries and constitutionality.
As time for ratification of the purchase treaty grew short, Jefferson accepted his Cabinet's counsel and rationalized: "It is the case of a guardian, investing the money of his ward in purchasing an important adjacent territory; and saying to him when of age, I did this for your good."

  Office of the Controller - Lease Purchase
Purchasing must provide a copy of the terms and conditions under which the purchase will be made and an outline of the financial payment plan.
As stated, when a requesting department determines that a lease purchase, lease with purchase option, or installment purchase is justified, it must evaluate the cost of the lease or rental of needed equipment versus the purchase cost of the equipment.
If the requesting department determines that a lease purchase, lease with purchase option, or installment purchase is the most economical way to acquire the equipment, the department enters a requisition detailing the requirements and providing justification for why this type of purchase is preferable to an outright purchase.

  Louisiana Purchase - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The purchase was an important moment in the presidency of Thomas Jefferson.
Effective on October 1, 1804, the purchased territory was organized into the Orleans Territory (most of which became the state of Louisiana) and the District of Louisiana, which was temporarily under the control of the governor and judges of the Indiana Territory.
The matter was not fully settled until the signing of the Adams-Onís Treaty in 1819, in which Spain ceded all of Florida to the U.S. and the boundary between the Louisiana territory and the Spanish colonies was set along the Sabine, Red and Arkansas rivers and the 42nd parallel.
