Missouri Fleet Management

The Missouri Chief Operating Officer requested the assistance of private sector fleet managers and industry representatives to study vehicle fleet practices within Missouri State Government. The state of Missouri spends approximately $98 million each year to transport state employees for official business. The COO asked for a task force to seek out opportunities to streamline fleet practices and lower the overall costs of transportation utilizing industry best practices.

The Task Force members reviewed state agency information and data, and provided input through a panel-like format. Meeting formats and data requests were based on Task Force requests, in order to facilitate gaining an understanding of fleet operations over the course of the limited interactions. Task Force members held conference calls with individual agencies, in addition to Task Force‐only calls and meetings, and smaller group interactions between Task Force members. The task force completed its work in December 2017.
