High speed photocopiers are defined as those operating at speeds of 100 or more copies per minute.  These photocopiers are considered sensitive purchases and require centralized internal control procedures beyond those for personal property.  Purchases of photocopiers operating at speeds less than 100 copies per minute do not require prior congressional approval.
