Telematics refers to technology-based hardware tools to collect, record, and transmit vehicle operational data. The devices plug into the vehicle’s onboard dashboard computer and record, store, and report data directly from the vehicle to various web-based reporting platforms.  The data provided can be used to help you manage your fleet at maximum efficiency.

GSA Fleet has leveraged our purchasing power and updated our offerings by awarding a new government-wide Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) that provides federal agencies with the latest in Telematics technology at competitive prices. This new offering will assist Federal agencies with meeting the sustainability mandates outlined in Executive Order (EO)13693 - Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade.  The BPA was awarded to AT&T Mobility, Inc. on September 30, 2015 and is open to all federal agencies for both GSA Fleet purchasing and leasing customers.
