Audit Prompts Ohio Sewer District to Reduce Fleet

March 01, 2017

A state audit of the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSDGC) resulted in a fleet reduction and creation of a motor pool. The Auditor of State’s Ohio Performance Team released the audit in February.

The utilization policy set by the city is 350 miles per month for passenger vehicles. Using this utilization policy of 4,200 miles annually, auditors found the city could reduce its fleet by six underutilized units, saving $47,900 per year in operating costs and providing a one-time revenue enhancement of $20,000. Using a higher utilization minimum of 12,000 miles annually would result in 75 underutilized vehicles.

During the audit, MSDGC eliminated underutilized vehicles and created a motor pool to increase utilization and vehicle sharing. The sewer district eliminated 23 vehicles and is still considering cutting more, WVXU reported.

MSDGC maintains a fleet of 183 passenger vehicles, managed by a full-time fleet manager and maintained by a full-time technician. Cincinnati Fleet Services Division technicians also work on the vehicles as needed.  The fleet uses Zonar and AssetWorks for data tracking.
