Asset Management


Completion of Agency Vehicle Justification Form 971


A Form 971 will be maintained for each assignment and will be customer-generated and forwarded to the CTO for consideration. When several vehicles of the same type are used for the same purpose, one Form 971 will suffice as long as the number of vehicles authorized is stated on the form. The CTO will process all Form 971s for the annual review and will also handle the forms for new requests. Existing vehicle assignments listed on the TV are exempt from additional Form 971 requirements.
