Managed vehicles are vehicles owned by an agency other than DAS Fleet. Typically the owning agency does not have statutory authority to own vehicles whereas DAS Fleet does. DAS Fleet is responsible for consolidating ownership of these vehicles back under DAS Fleet.
To assist the owning agency in this transition, DAS Fleet provides management oversight - fuel credit card, vehicle maintenance and repair monitoring, average monthly usage, reporting, etc. - and the agency retains ownership (title) of the vehicle. At the time the vehicle is due for replacement, the owning agency sells the vehicle and keeps the proceeds; the vehicle is replaced with one owned by DAS Fleet.
This approach helps the owning agency take advantage of the services provided by DAS Fleet and at the same time eliminates the number of unauthorized vehicles the agency owns. It also provides DAS Fleet time to budget for replacement of the managed vehicle.
