City of Richmond Moves to Outsource Vehicle Services

July 09, 2008

RICHMOND, VA – The City of Richmond is considering turning over its public vehicles to private maintenance and management, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The city recently called for information from private companies about their interest in taking over operation of the fleet of more than 2,400 vehicles, ranging from cars and light trucks to heavy equipment, fire engines, and police cars. Richmond already outsources its supply of parts for city vehicles.

The outsourcing of fleet operations was a central recommendation of a report by City Auditor Umesh Dalal in May 2007. Under a possible outsourcing arrangement, Richmond said it would continue to employ a fleet operations manager and minimal staff to oversee and support the private operation.
