NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — In these days of severe budget limitations there are tough questions that are going to have to be answered in regards to government-owned vehicles.

Are unit vehicles underutilized? Can units justify all their vehicles?

In fact, these questions need to be answered next month by every unit on base.

Air Force Vehicle Management Staffs will be on Nellis and Creech to conduct a Vehicle Validation Visit March 18-22. The VVV is a process to validate the vehicles we have in our fleet by reducing, increasing, moving or simply changing the size or type of vehicles a unit uses.

Each unit will get the chance to sit down with the validation team and justify why they need to retain their vehicles or discuss possible changes. The goal of the VVV is to ensure maximum efficiencies in our fleet and to ensure the right vehicle is used for the right job. The 99th Logistics Readiness Squadron Vehicle Management and Analysis office will be coordinating with units to develop a schedule to meet with the validation team and encourage unit representatives to come prepared to answer the following questions:

  • Who operates the vehicle?
  • What is the vehicle being used for?
  • Is this the right size and type of vehicle needed?

If units must have a specific vehicle by regulation, bring the reference to the meeting. The more prepared units are, and the stronger the supporting documentation, the better the units’ chances of keeping their vehicles.

IAW AFI 24-302, no vehicle authorization submissions or requests for new vehicles will be accepted for a period of one year after a VVV, so if there are issues, ensure they are brought up during the validation meeting.

If you have any questions please call the Vehicle Management and Analysis Office at 652-8059 or 404-2681.
