Sample fleet management policies and procedures for vehicle selection from CSOs and Government.
- Victorian Whole-of-Government standard motor vehicle policy
The following points on vehicle selection have been extracted from the Victorian Whole-of-Government Standard Motor Vehicle Policy (February 2004):
7.5 Vehicle selection
7.5.1 Each department or agency shall base its vehicle purchases and/or leases on operational requirements, occupational health and safety, pricing, operating costs, environmental impact and the availability of conveniently located vehicle maintenance providers.
7.5.2 A list of vehicles available for procurement under the Victorian Government Purchasing Board’s whole-of-government vehicle contracts is published at www.vicfleet.vic.gov.au. Any request to purchase a passenger or light commercial vehicle not on the list of available vehicles must be based on operational necessity and must be directed in writing to the Head of VicFleet after approval has been received from the appropriate authority within the department.
