This audit found information from Automatic Vehicle Location devices installed in light-duty government vehicles is not being used to its full potential.
Manitoba’s Vehicle and Equipment Management Agency (VEMA) installed Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) devices in light-duty government vehicles to find operational and financial efficiencies. These efficiencies were expected to be achieved through improving driver behaviour—specifically: reduced idling, speeding, and unapproved after-hours use of vehicles.
This audit found government officials were not using AVL information to maximize the operational and financial efficiencies of light-duty government vehicles.
As a result, there are missed opportunities to decrease costs, increase safety, and in the process, reduce greenhouse gas emissions through decreased fuel consumption and better driving.
This audit contains 8 recommendations.
