Federal Motor Vehicles:
Agencies' Progress in Meeting Expenditure Control Requirements
GGD-88-40: Published: Mar 2, 1988. Publicly Released: Mar 2, 1988.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO provided information on federal agencies' implementation of the 1985 Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act's requirement that they improve their management of and reduce their costs for motor vehicles.
GAO found that: (1) although the 20 agencies affected by the requirement made some progress, there were instances in which they did not implement specific requirements; (2) most of the agencies have not implemented motor vehicle data collection systems because the General Services Administration (GSA) has not developed any implementation procedure; (3) most of the affected agencies have not conducted cost-comparison studies because the act does not require a specific comparison method and GSA has not developed comparison guidance; (4) agencies estimated $166 million in reductions to their motor vehicle outlays for fiscal years 1986 and 1987; (5) GSA estimated savings of $11.9 million after consolidating its motor vehicle fleet; and (6) GSA and the agencies believed that administrative burdens imposed by the vehicle disposal process would be relieved through the implementation of GSA recommendations.
