Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and state COO John Suter announced a new initiative to modernize Oklahoma's vehicle utilization. At the direction of Governor Stitt, OMES Fleet Management is partnering with state agencies to conduct a complete review and accounting of the State of Oklahoma's vehicle fleet.
"We're always looking for ways to make government more efficient while being good stewards of taxpayer dollars," said Gov. Stitt. "This initiative will cut down on unnecessary resources and hold our agencies to even higher standards."
The State of Oklahoma has 10,800 vehicles in its fleet. An annual evaluation of state assets determined that 7,955 vehicles are driven less than 12,000 miles per year and are considered underutilized.
"Knowing that mileage alone doesn't tell the full story, we are looking forward to collaborating with agencies to find efficiencies to improve our statewide fleet," Suter said.
More information will come following the completion of OMES' fleet audit.
