Agencies that require telematics devices on their agency owned vehicles may wish to procure devices through GSA IT Schedule 70.

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, 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.
