Statewide Contract Vehicles Survey
The Operational Services Division (OSD) has negotiated an array of Statewide Contracts to satisfy Commonwealth fleet needs. Two of those contracts address fleet acquisition: VEH98 (Purchase of Vehicles) and VEH93 (Heavy Duty Vehicles). 

Over the next year, OSD will be negotiating successor contracts for VEH98 and VEH93 and we are interested to hear from public buyers that fall into any of these groupings:
     - Used the VEH98 or VEH93 contracts;
     - Elected not to use the contracts in lieu of another source;
     - May have future fleet acquisition needs.  

OSD will be closely examining buyer feedback to understand vehicle purchasing requirements and how our current contracts meet customer expectations.  

Please take a few minutes to complete our short survey. Choose to answer some or all of our questions.

Thank you in advance for your participation!
