Vehicle Acquisitions

State agencies/departments shall submit an annual fleet acquisition plan to OFAM if the department desires to acquire any new or replace any existing fleet assets. This includes any long term rentals/leases (fleet assets in the department’s control for over thirty [30] consecutive calendar days or more than four [4] consecutive work weeks [excluding weekend and holidays]).

Electronic copies of annual fleet acquisition plans (and any supplemental) must be submitted to the state agencies/departments Fleet Analysis and Reporting Unit analyst and include the following (if applicable):

Required:

Complete a Fleet Acquisition Substitution Form (PDF) if your department would like to request to substitute a fleet asset that was previously approved by OFAM to be replaced with another asset in specific circumstances. These circumstances include the following: when a vehicle is wrecked, not cost effective to repair, and/or stolen and the department’s needs to replace that fleet asset with one was already approved on a Fleet Acquisition Plan (FAP). A department may also substitute an approved fleet asset purchase for another type of fleet asset if there is a demonstrated urgent need for the vehicle to be purchased now and the vehicle is no longer available on the state contract and/or if the fleet asset no longer meets the department’s business needs. Substitutions may only be submitted on approved Fleet Acquisition Plans that have not expired.

If Applicable:

Include all necessary approved Budget Change Proposals (BCP) or other supporting justification that shows authorization for additional fleet assets, STD. 152 (interactive PDF) and OFA 6 forms (if applicable). Contact the Inspector of Automotive Equipment assigned to your area for the OFA 6.
