Government of Guam Uncertain of Number of Vehicles in Fleet

October 10, 2007

AGANA, GUAM – The government of Guam does not know the total number of vehicles its agencies own or lease, according to an audit report from the Office of the Public Auditor, according to the Pacific Daily News. The purpose of the audit was to verify the accuracy of GovGuam’s vehicle inventory and monitor compliance with Public Law 28-90, which requires the Department of Public Works to maintain an inventory of all of the government’s motor vehicles. The audit excluded specialty vehicles such as fire trucks, buses, ambulances, and the like.

The audit report stated, “DPW failed to maintain a current, accurate, and complete inventory of general purpose vehicles owned by the government of Guam.”

There was a marked difference in the total numbers of government vehicles: Public Works said there are 2,269. The Department of Revenue and Taxation said there are 3,109, though the agency listed vehicles as old as 1,953 models in the inventory. The Department of Administration puts the number of government vehicles at 1,242. Agency reporting puts the total at 1,383 vehicles.

DPW Director Larry Perez said his agency is researching systems to manage and track the government fleet, but that funding is an issue.
