New Orleans Inspector General Report Says Fleet Recommendations Not Implemented

March 08, 2012

NEW ORLEANS – The City of New Orleans Office of the Inspector General (OIG) said the City failed to implement a number of recommendations designed to improve management of its fleet. In a report issued by the OIG in 2008, the office recommended the City purchase a new fleet management system; perform an assessment of vehicle utilization to determine appropriate fleet size and determine a baseline for fleet operations; and change quarterly reports to comply with increased requirements.

In addition, another recommendation was to centralize fleet management and hire an experienced fleet manager. The City objected to this recommendation and said it’s better for departments to manage their own respective fleets.

The OIG did find that the City complied with the recommendation to provide “new and definitive” policy guidance for use of City vehicles, including criteria for assigning take-home vehicles.
