The Department of Corrections (DOC) needs to replace two of its prison transport buses. There are two companies that have a track record of making reliable vehicles, and both make a bus that meets the needs of the department. The DOC pays an 8% interest rate on money it borrows. The bus from Company A has a purchase price of $105,000 and a 10-year service life expectancy, and it averages $2,000 per year in maintenance costs. The bus from Company B has a purchase price of $110,000 and a 10-year service life expectancy, and it averages $1,500 per year in maintenance costs. Which bus should the Department of Corrections select?
- The information technology (IT) department has recently completed a major refurbishment and upgrade of the city’s data center, at a cost of $10,145,825. The chief information officer (CIO) has informed the central budget office that the IT department will need to do the same kind of upgrade in 5 years, and he expects the total cost of that project to be 10% more than this year’s project, accounting for better future technology and future increases in costs. The city does not expect to have enough funding available to pay for the refurbishment in 5 years and must put money away during each of the next 4 years to meet this need. How much money should the city put aside in each of the next 4 years to be able to pay for the data center refurbishment 5 years from now, assuming the city can invest the money at a 4.5% interest rate?
