The NCSFA also recently awarded the Tennessee Department of General Services, Office of Vehicle and Asset Management with its annual Fleet Excellence Award. Bob Williams, assistant commissioner for the office of vehicle and asset management, accepted the award at the association’s 2019 Workshop.
The Fleet Excellence Award is bestowed to a member fleet manager or organization that has demonstrated leadership resulting in cost reduction, the creation of new efficiencies, safety enhancements, and customer service.
The NCSFA selection committee noted the work the Office of Vehicle and Asset Management has accomplished the past five years to be selected for this honor. Through the implementation of new hiring practices, an updated training curriculum, utilizing telework for eligible employees, and a thorough review of their business practices to eliminate wasteful steps, the office has evolved to become a more efficient operation. Over the last five years, the office has decreased personnel by 15 full time employees while completing the same amount of work, implemented an initiative to visit annually with each vendor to improve relationships, and has achieved a customer satisfaction rating of 97.3%.
