New Contract Saves Time and Money on Fleet Purchases
The State of Texas buys a wide range of vehicles for agencies and universities to serve the citizens of Texans. In 2013 a new contract was solicited and awarded for fleet cars and trucks. The new contract is based on a pre-qualified vendor list and annual pricing solicitation with no interim price increases allowed. This improved pricing structure will remove unnecessary risk and allow for greater competition resulting in lower overall prices. The new contract also features fully updated specifications, eliminating many redundancies and inefficiencies associated with previous contracts. In addition, the refined product offerings reduce the administrative burden associated with using, as well as maintaining the contract.

The new contract is a multiple award contract with one primary supplier for each vehicle series. Through strategic sourcing, the Strategic Sourcing Division leveraged the state’s vast purchasing power to obtain best value. The bid evaluations were based on a total cost of ownership approach, which included prices for base vehicle, highly utilized options and overall fuel efficiency. This methodology allowed us to make more intelligent awards based on actual purchases and total vehicle costs.
