Department of Health Motor Vehicle Fleet Policy
Attached is an updated version of the Department of Health Motor Vehicle Fleet Policy effective 1 June 2006 (endorsed at the SHEF meeting of 19 September 2006).
The purpose of this policy provides guidance in all aspects relating to its passenger and light commercial motor wehicle fleet. The policy complements and supports the WA Government’s Fleet Policy and Guidelines and suite of Common Use Arrangements for the acquisition, financing, management and disposal of vehicles.
This policy applies to all organisations and bodies that report through to the Director General of Health in his capacity as Chief Executive Officer and the Board for all Health Services and the relevant Divisions within Royal Street.
The policy embraces a more rigorous approach to the purchase and replacement of the vehicle fleet with an emphasis on the procurement of four-cylinder vehicles to service WA Health needs. Consequently, WA Health is required to select four- cylinder vehicles in all instances except where a business case can be made justifying the need for a six-cylinder vehicle. Where a six-cylinder vehicle has been approved by the Area Chief Executive, the vehicle selected must be a liquid petroleum gas (LPG) powered vehicle.
