Audit of the Department of Fleet and Facility Management's Maintenance of Police Vehicles

Report Details

Report Description: 
OIG evaluated the Department of Fleet and Facility Management’s (2FM) maintenance of the Chicago Police Department’s (CPD) vehicle fleet to determine whether it was attaining 95% fleet availability and whether 2FM was performing preventive maintenance in a timely manner. 2FM maintains approximately 3,000 vehicles on behalf of CPD. OIG determined that that 2FM’s inaccurate data prevented the Department from assessing how effectively it managed the police fleet. In response to our audit findings and recommendations, 2FM stated that it has improved data quality to calculate availability. We also found that in 2017 2FM performed only 12.9% of preventive maintenance in a timely manner, primarily due to delayed requests from 2FM for CPD to deliver vehicles to its garages.
