Full report in PDF format


  • The Legislature and the Department of Management Services Support Program implemented many of the recommendations from our 1998 report.  State agencies are now collecting and reporting data on vehicle assignment and utilization.  The program streamlined purchasing to eliminate outmoded practices that caused unnecessary delays.  Also, the program consolidated its three federal surplus property distribution centers, which will result in an annual savings of $163,128 and a reduction of eight full-time equivalent employee positions.
  • The department is in the process of implementing other OPPAGA recommendations relative to motor vehicle operations, which could save between $800,000 and $2.4 million annually.
