Competitive Bidding Saves 5 Percent on Fleet Buys
Texas state government buys a wide range of vehicles for agencies and universities to serve Texans. Since April 2009, about $200 million has been spent on automobiles, cars, law enforcement vehicles, alternate fuel vehicles, light pickups, passenger and cargo vans, heavy trucks and related accessories. Contracts were awarded to 15 suppliers including five new Texas based suppliers to generate competition and the lowest pricing to benefit taxpayers.
The state conducted specification development meetings with the key stakeholders — manufacturers, suppliers and customers – to identify future needs in purchasing of fleet vehicles. This process resulted in a five-year contract and a streamlined contracting process. The competitive bidding and negotiations with key respondents resulted in a savings of $11.35 million. Read how local governments are saving on fleet purchases through the State of Texas CO-OP.

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 get a better deal. The bid evaluations were based on a total cost of ownership approach, which included prices for base vehicle and highly utilized options and overall fuel efficiency. The state’s vehicle purchasing savings can benefit local government entities, too.
