Gov’t has no plan to centralize vehicle administration
The government, in its response to lawmaker Sulu Sou’s inquiry on the administration of government vehicles, has said that it has no plan to centralize their management. The government is administering a total of 2,028 public vehicles, but the management is conducted by different bureaus. The lawmaker submitted the inquiry to ask whether the government is willing to take unified control over the management of public vehicles to improve efficiency. The Public Administration and Civil Service Bureau added that it is working on digitizing government correspondence which, in the future, will help reduce the need for public vehicles delivering the correspondence to different bureaus.
