Geotab has been awarded the largest single-source telematics contract to date by GSA Fleet, a division of the GSA (General Services Administration), which provides centralized procurement for U.S. federal agencies. GSA Fleet will equip its 217,000 vehicles with Geotab’s fleet management technology, according to a release from the company.

Since 1954, GSA Fleet has been providing fleet management services to more than 75 participating federal agencies. Its services include vehicle acquisition, leasing, and disposal, as well as maintenance control, accident management, and fuel and loss prevention services.

“This rare, single-source award from GSA Fleet reinforces Geotab’s ability to provide secure and highly specialized technology to the government sector,” said Jean Pilon-Bignell, Geotab’s associate vice president, government and smart city. “This partnership helps Geotab expand our portfolio of services and solutions to the public sector while enabling GSA Fleet and other federal agency fleets to optimize their operations via leading analytics capabilities.”

Geotab manages the entire technology stack, from the in-cab hardware and embedded firmware used to encrypt and transmit data, to the secure server-side hosting and software applications. It was the first telematics company to achieve FIPS 140-2 validation for its cryptographic library and has also received a GSA sponsorship for the FedRAMP cybersecurity certification as part of this contract.
