Lease

TSB fleet vehicles which are permanently assigned to a specific agency and division with monthly lease and mileage rates applied according to vehicle type.

Standards:

Leasing Agencies are expected to use each lease vehicle more than 1000 miles per month when averaged over the life of the lease.

High Use - Lease Vehicle Use is considered to be High Use when Leasing Agencies accumulate more than 2000 miles per month over a TSB-specified period of time.
Minimum Use - When a Leasing Agency is notified by TSB of vehicle use significantly below the Standard for Lease Vehicle Use, the Leasing Agency is to review their history of use for the vehicle in question and take steps to increase the use of the vehicle in a manner which will ensure efficient and effective use of the vehicle, such as rotating vehicle assignments. Failure to meet Standard for Minimum Lease Use will result in the recall or reassignment of the vehicle. The Transportation Services Bureau may, at its own discretion, choose not to replace a lease vehicle at the end of the lease period if the use of that vehicle has repeatedly been classified as Minimum Lease Use.
Modified - Transportation Services Bureau may approve a Modified Standard for Vehicle Use for a specific lease assignment when it is in the best interests of the State of Nebraska.

LEASE REQUESTS - Agencies wishing to request lease vehicles will be required to complete and submit the appropriate form(s), which will include the requesting agency Director’s authorizing signature. Contact TSB for additional information. The ability to satisfy requests for vehicles will take into consideration availability of existing fleet vehicles, as well as budget and policy limitations.

EXISTING LEASES - All permanent assignments shall remain valid until terminated by the leasing Agency Director or Vehicle Coordinator or TSB.

Please note - TSB reserves the right to review the status of all vehicles assigned to the agency and to recall any vehicle which will be most advantageous to the state.
