Vehicle Using Departments

The head of each department that has possession of vehicles, or oversees contractors who operate Government-owned or leased vehicles, will assure that such equipment is:

  • Properly designed and specified for the job to be done;
  • Operated by a fully trained and licensed driver;
  • Used in a safe and non-abusive manner by all drivers and operators;
  • Fueled and operated on alternative fuels if applicable;
  • Maintained according to schedules provided by fleet management;
  • Utilized at a rate that justifies continued assignment of the vehicle;
  • Periodically cleaned inside and outside to maintain appearance.
