Wisconsin DNR to Cut Fleet Costs as Part of Restructuring Effort

August 26, 2011

MADISON, WI –Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is now the State’s first “Enterprise Agency” pilot, which gives the organization increased operating flexibility, according to a news release from the organization. The two-year pilot, though, requires the DNR to reduce the costs associated with operating its assets, including its vehicle fleet.

The memorandum explains that overall fleet costs will fall as a result of right-sizing the type of fleet vehicles and mileage costs, providing vehicles with features designed to meet staff needs, sharing vehicles with other agencies and local government entities, and reducing the need for use of vehicle rentals and personal miles.

The memorandum of understanding signed by the DNR and the State’s Department of Administration (DOA) sets the vehicle procurement plan budget at $3.5 million per year for 2011-2013. The DNR stated this would save $4.7 million for fiscal-year 2012 and an additional $830,000 in fiscal-year 2013 compared with four-year average costs under the current system.
