Full report in PDF format

  • Few agencies have revised their operating policies to reassign underutilized or inappropriately assigned passenger vehicles. The state could save $2.3┬ámillion annually by changing its vehicle assignment policies.
  • Four hundred employees continue to drive their personal vehicles in excess of 15,000 miles annually for state business. The state could save $292,000 annually over the useful lives of the vehicles by providing state-owned vehicles to these employees because operating costs for state-owned vehicles are lower than the mileage reimbursement rate.
