Asset Management


Alternative Modes of Transportation

Taxi Service

Where applicable, Centers will evaluate the cost effectiveness of a radio-dispatched taxi service in lieu of authorizing a permanent vehicle assignment.

Shuttle bus

bus services are encouraged, where practical and cost effective, to move personnel between various locations on and off the Center.

Privately-Owned Vehicle (POV) Reimbursement

An alternative to furnishing a Government-owned or leased vehicle is to compensate individuals to use their POVís. Used effectively, this can be a valuable tool in reducing the number of Government-owned or leased vehicle assignments. However, individuals cannot be forced to use their POVís. A cost-benefit analysis should be conducted on a case-by-case basis.
