The Division of Fleet Operations (DFO) is an internal service fund and operates under the direction of the Department of Administrative Services.
Motor Pool The Motor Pool Program manages the vehicle fleet for the State of Utah. We direct every aspect of the fleet, including purchasing, leasing, and maintenance. The program uses state cooperative contracts to purchase and lease vehicles at very competitive pricing, allowing for long-term vehicle lease rates that are significantly lower than those of the private sector. The State’s vehicles are maintained via a statewide network of contracted vendors that provide efficient, easy access to services. The program also manages a towing contract that provides emergency roadside assistance for those in need. The Fleet Focus management information system is used as a repository of all information that relates to the usage of state owned or managed fleet vehicles. This includes vehicle specifics, fuel transactions, maintenance and repair data, accidents, short-term reservations, mileage, and vehicle operator specifics.
Fuel Dispensing Network The State of Utah’s Fuel Network is the low-cost fueling alternative. The state’s fuel contracts make these savings available to state and federal government agencies, including cities, counties, political subdivisions and school districts, and higher education to provide safe, convenient and cost effective fueling. The Fuel Network is also responsible for the maintenance of all state-owned underground storage tanks, ensuring that all federal, state, and local laws and regulations are complied with.
Travel Office The State Travel Office was placed in service in November, 1992 and is managed by two state employees. Its primary purpose is to save taxpayer dollars used for state business travel. The State has contracted with Christopherson Business Travel to provide five professional travel agents to handle all of our business travel needs. The State currently has contracts with three major airlines. We also have contracts with three major rental car companies. Other services include assistance with rail, buses, lodging, catering and group gathering facilities. The State Travel Office is a full-service travel office with the goal of providing the best services at the best prices. The services are also available to cities, counties, political subdivisions, school districts and higher education institutions.
