  • mitigating additional contracting expenses for customer agencies
  • saving agencies time conducting their own market research

In 2015, GSA Fleet awarded a government-wide BPA to AT&T Mobility, Inc. for telematics services. All federal agencies may place a task order against this BPA to purchase telematics for their agency-owned vehicles until the BPA expires on March 31, 2020.

If you currently have AT&T devices installed in your GSA Fleet leased vehicles, you may continue using this solution until your vehicle is due for replacement. All new GSA Fleet replacement vehicles will come equipped with GSA’s telematics device. Therefore, leasing customers can no longer use the AT&T solution for their leased vehicles.

The AT&T BPA offers two categories of services: GPS Tracking Only and GPS Tracking with Vehicle Diagnostics. Agencies may place orders directly with AT&T Mobility, Inc. The rates listed in the table below have been pre-negotiated to allow for a simple, streamlined ordering process.

As with any aftermarket up-fit of GSA Fleet leased vehicles, agencies are required to inform GSA Fleet. If your agency plans to install telematics devices on your GSA Fleet leased vehicles, whether the device is purchased through GSA’s BPA with AT&T or any source outside of our BPA with Geotab USA, GSA Fleet must be informed and approve the request before any devices can be installed. GSA Fleet requires a signed Letter of Agreement (LOA), including a vehicle listing of all the vehicles/VINs that are to be equipped with telematics before any installation can occur. The signed LOA and listing of vehicles can be sent to fleetsolutions@gsa.gov.
