Audit: State vehicle use “inefficient”

A new audit concludes that state government is not efficiently using its nearly 13,000-vehicle fleet.

The Legislative Auditor’s Office looked at six agencies to see if vehicle costs were being reduced.

However, the report released Monday stated that, on average, the agencies used only half their fleet on a given day.

Other findings:
  • The state isn't operating a statewide motor pool in accordance with state law.
  • Agencies aren’t required to turn in vehicles they don’t use.

Commissioner of Administration Angèle Davis agreed with most of the findings.
