Kentucky Fleet Must Improve Efficiency, Says Governor

January 15, 2010

FRANKFORT, KY - Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear recently introduced a new initiative, Beshear's "Smart Government" policy, to extend and expand the efficiency measures instituted during the first two years of his administration. The state fleet was addressed in the policy.

Beshear directed a review of the state fleet, including:

  • Evaluating the cost effectiveness of take-home vehicles.
  • Expanding a pilot program that installed GPS on dozens of state vehicles, which demonstrated 10 percent reduction in miles driven, an 83 percent reduction in speeding and 14 percent increase in fuel efficiency.
  • Exploring self-insurance for vehicles
  • Outsourcing the state's fleet partially or in total.
