Hello, First time poster, so please be gentle. We have a customer that wants to buy software with a 1 yr maintence agreement and then an additional year of maintenance for the software. This maintenance is treated as a supply, we have FY 13-2 yr money and this will go on contract in FY13. Does the bonafide need rule prohibit the purchase of the FY14 requirement (i.e. the 2nd year of maintenance), or is it allowed because the money's period of availability extends into FY14? I have been researching this for a bit and most discusions and Comp. Gen. decisions are in relation to violations due to expiring or 1yr money used to fund out year requirements, but have not been able to find anything exactly on point with multi year appropriations funding out year requirents during the fundings period of availability. Thanks.
