Department of Infrastructure - Vehicle Fleet

As a Taxpayer, I often see many new shiny vans and HGV vehicles travelling around the Isle of Man, it makes me wonder if these vehicles were in private ownership, would they be top spec wagons and 4x4 vehicles etc?

They seem to get renewed on a very regular basis and I wonder could the Isle of Man Government relax it's vehicle procurement process to save Joe Public a bit of cash?

I suppose its not just the DOI, its quite a lot of Government Departments that have shiny new cars, vans and wagons, but the DOI shiny trucks certainly stand out to me and my family.

Maybe worth having a look at this IOM Government.

Why the contribution is important

I think this is an important idea as the Government vehicle fleet seems to be growing with very expensive kit and new vehicles and there life could be extended by a few more years (as would happen in private ownership).

In return I am sure a saving could be made over a number of years.
