The Fleet contract management teams support NSW Government agencies in the planning, sourcing and management of contracts required for operating an effective fleet. This page provides resources and policies to guide and support agencies in their role of delivering transport solutions.
The Approved Vehicle List (AVL) is a concise list of vehicles recommended for the use of NSW Government agencies. It is a subset of the motor vehicle prequalification scheme and is guided by the NSW Government cluster business requirements, the NSWG Travel and Transport Policy, and the Motor Vehicle Operational Guidelines. The AVL will ensure that NSW Government utilises a fit for purpose and cost effective fleet.

Under Board Direction 2012-02 NSW government agencies must use whole-of-government contracts for obtaining goods and services to which those contracts apply. This extends to contracts 300 and 333.
NSW Government agencies are required to adhere to the NSW Government Travel and Transport Policy (PDF, 188 KB) effective 1 July 2016. The policy provides a framework for agencies’ travel and transport decision making, ensures spending is sustainable and achieves best value for money. It also promotes innovative and collaborative approaches to the way government manages its travel and transport needs.
For fleet, the Travel and Transport Policy should be read together with the Motor Vehicles Operational Guidelines (PDF,1.7MB). The Travel and Transport Policy supersedes the Motor Vehicles Policy for NSW Government agencies.

Fleet management and leasing
On 1 July 2016, StateFleet (the business unit of the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation that delivered fleet management and leasing services to other government agencies) was decommissioned and replaced with an outsourced fleet supply model. This model consists of a panel of private sector fleet management providers (Contract 300) and a separate panel of lessors (Contract 333).
Rather than a single government-owned fleet, the model sees a fleet manager provider from contract 300 engaged by each government agency to deliver fleet services. The panel of lessors on contract 333 provides the capital funding to purchase new vehicles for each agency.
This model will lower costs, maximise ongoing competition in price and service levels, and free up approximately $1 billion in capital over the next four years. The change is also aligned with the broader government policy and budgetary considerations.
