Spotlight on vehicle leases

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, February 08, 2014

A FEW government departments in the North experience problems with vehicle arrangements because they were not aware of their vehicle lease arrangements.

Speaking at the Ministry of Finance awareness tour in the North yesterday, the ministry's principal administration officer Malakai Tueli said these were one of the many reasons they were touring the region.

Mr Tueli said they were in the North to create awareness of the conditions of government vehicle lease arrangements.

"Government departments have highlighted the fact that they are not aware of these lease arrangements," Mr Tueli said.

"As a result at the end of the lease period, departments face problems as they have to pay from their own pockets because they do not keep to the terms of the lease.

"For instance under the lease arrangements they have to operate vehicles under a certain mileage and have a limited number of tyre replacements."

Mr Tueli said government departments were often not aware of these terms and conditions.

"We conduct awareness at headquarters level and they in turn need to disseminate this information down the line.

"However this failed and that is why we are coming out of our shells to be more proactive and make awareness at the divisional level."
