You can submit your business case and any additional queries to the Procurement Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fuel and Routine Maintenance
All University vehicles are provided with two fuel cards.
Vehicles are only to be fuelled with the type and grade of fuel specified by the manufacturer.
The lease cost includes regular servicing and maintenance costs specified by the manufacturer at the intervals indicated in the vehicle handbook. Servicing and maintenance must only be undertaken by providers authorised by the leasing company. These are detailed on the Motor Vehicle Information Sheet which is provided when the vehicle is delivered.
Tyres and Windscreens
The lease costs include the replacement of tyres due to normal driving wear (1 set per 40,000km) depending on the type of vehicle.
Abnormal tyre wear, puncture repair or tyre replacement due to punctures are not specifically covered under the lease arrangement and may be charged to the operating business unit if the University incurs these additional costs.
Replacement or repair of windscreens are not specifically covered under the lease costs and are also to be replaced / repaired by a supplier authorised by the leasing company. Any additional costs will be charged back to the operating business unit.
Accident Reporting and Repair
If a University vehicle is involved in an accident it must be reported using a motor vehicle claim form (opens in a new window).
For further information regarding coverage, please see the Motor Vehicle Insurance (opens in a new window) web page or seek advice from the University's Accountant - Taxation and Insurance Officer who co-ordinates the insurance claim and will advise on the repair process.
End of Lease
All vehicles which are required to be returned at the end of the lease period, must be returned to Hawkesbury Campus Safety and Security (Building J9), along with the logbooks, 2 x keys and all other accessories/equipment provided at the beginning of the lease. Failure to do so will result in replacement costs being charged back to the operating business unit.
Any damage or abnormal wear to the vehicle which is deemed outside of regular wear and tear (by reference to the Australian Fleet Lessors Association Guide to Fair Wear and Tear (opens in a new window)) will be charged back to the operating business unit.
