DHS OIG: The Federal Protective Service (FPS) Vehicle Fleet Is Not Managed Effectively 

October 2015

FPS did not properly justify that its current fleet is necessary to carry out its operational mission. Specifically, FPS did not justify the need for:more vehicles than officers; administrative vehicles; larger sport utility vehicles;home-to-work miles in one region; and discretionary equipment added to vehicles. As a result, FPS cannot ensure it is operating the most cost- efficient fleet and potentially missed opportunities to save more than $2.5 million in fiscal year 2014. Report
