Fleet Management manages the acquisition, operation, maintenance, and disposal of the state's fleet of motor vehicles and watercraft. The state's fleet includes approximately 26,000 units, the fleet includes automobiles and light trucks, medium and heavy trucks, aircraft, construction and industrial equipment, marine equipment (e.g., boats, airboats, boat engines, etc.), trailers, tractors and mowers, and small utility, motorcycles, and all terrain vehicles (ATV).
Responsibilities of this program area include developing policies and procedures for effective and efficient acquisition, assignment, use, maintenance, and disposal of vehicles and watercraft. In addition, Fleet Management determines motor vehicles and watercraft to be included on state contracts; develops technical bid specifications; and assists in evaluating the contracts. This area ensures the cost-effective acquisition of safe, energy-efficient, and quality vehicles and watercraft. This service approves the purchase of vehicles and watercraft, develops equipment purchase approval guidelines, develops fleet replacement criteria, and administers the state's federally mandated fueled vehicles program.
Fleet Management provides the Florida Equipment Electronic Tracking system (FLEET) which is a fleet management and reporting system. The system provides the management and cost information required to effectively and efficiently manage the state's fleet. FLEET also provides accountability of equipment use and expenditures.
