DOA Central Fleet Rates
The Department of Administration’s Central Fleet Rates contains information on the daily and mileage rates that are charged for the lease of UWM’s fleet vehicles. Please note that the phone number for reservations found in the link pertain only to UW-Madison. For reserving a vehicle at UWM, please see the information below under Van Rentals.
Vehicles may be leased from the Department of Administration by completing a vehicle request. Requests must be well-documented and justified in order to be approved by DOA, and the process can take as long as a year from the time of the request until the vehicle is ready to be picked up. **The 2019 vehicle request period is now closed. We will update once the 2020 period is open, which will be late spring/early summer of 2019. For reference and planning purposes only, the following is an obsolete form with the types of questions that the DOA will ask: 2018 Vehicle Justification
Vehicles are eligible for replacement once they have reached 10 years or 110,000 miles before the next vehicle request period. The DOA will notify UWM of which vehicles are eligible to be replaced, and Transportation Services will in turn notify each eligible department, assisting them in the process of getting a replacement or additional vehicles. If a different vehicle type is desired as a replacement, the vehicle justification form is not necessary.

Transportation Services has a fleet of 13 Dodge Grand Caravans which seat seven (one driver and six passengers). These are used primarily by Be On the Safe Side, and therefore are only for short-term rentals and are not available after 5 pm. Rental rates are based on the minivan rates found in Central Fleet Rates and are not meant to generate profit, but to offset the expenses of leasing the vehicle. Interested parties may contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about a van rental.
Rental rates are $32 per day (per vehicle) and $0.32 per mile. Any employee who has been approved by UWM to drive a university vehicle may operate the rentals, or Transportation Services can provide a driver at a rate of $14.55 (to offset the student payroll expenses). In order to become an approved driver or to check an employee’s driver status, please see the Enterprise Fleet Management System for instructions.
