Policy on Use of State Vehicles

Permissible Use of State Vehicles 

State employees with a valid driver's license may drive state vehicles if the travel is for "official state business" only. Faculty, staff, students, or volunteers are considered employees of the University if they are in active status on the payroll system.

Permissible Use of University Motor Pool Vehicles 

State vehicles may be requisitioned from the University Motor Pool if the travel is for "official state business" only. The transportation requisition will be signed by the Budget Unit Supervisor, verifying that the trip is "official state business" and that all drivers have a valid driver's license. It is each department's responsibility to list the qualified drivers on the Transportation Requisition form. This form is due in the Physical Plant before the vehicle leaves University property.

Permissible Passengers in State Vehicles 

Only employees of the state or persons reasonably engaged in official state business are allowed to ride in a state-owned or leased motor vehicle.
