Spending Review: Free consultancy offer for public sector fleets
With public sector bodies under pressure to cut costs, the organisation has said that it's prepared to undertake a level of free consultancy on behalf of individual public sector organisations to assist them in identifying ways in which they can develop cost-effective, value for money policies and procedures.
The service is an extension of Alliance Asset Management's "health check" service launched earlier this year and specifically targeted at fleets running from 500 to 10,000 vehicles.
Managing Director Vincent St Claire said: 'Using our expertise we will analyse an organisation's current operating policies, procedures and costs and make a series of recommendations that will deliver financial savings without compromising on operational efficiency.
'The financial savings generated can then be used to help fund frontline public sector services to the benefit of the community at large.
'Additionally, our recommendations will help public sector organisations compile policies and procedures that will reduce their exposure to "grey" fleet at-work driving risk and cut their carbon footprint.'
He added: 'As the public sector gets to grips with identifying cost savings, transport policies should highlight the requirements for employees to use the most economic and efficient method of travel, taking into account cost, environmental impact and timing factors. Planning safer, more efficient and economic journeys may also mean restricting "grey" fleet use.'
