Recurring Dispatch Vehicles assigned on a daily recurring basis for the conduct of official business. These vehicles will not be assigned for the convenience of the unit/activity, nor will these dispatches be for the convenience of the vehicle operator. IAW AR 58-1, these vehicles will be rejustified annually. Failure to rejustify a vehicle annually will result in the vehicle recurring dispatch being discontinued.
Nontactical Vehicle Justification
To avoid the high costs associated with the use of General Service Administration (GSA) vehicles, an annual review of mission transportation and vehicle utilization is conducted. During the review, cross leveling of vehicles is done to ensure maximum utilization is achieved. If a further reduction in the Transportation Motor Pool (TMP) vehicle fleet is in order, Commanders, Directors and Chiefs may be directed to turn in vehicles currently assigned to their organization for redistribution.
Recurring dispatch vehicles (by type) must be rejustified annually by the using activity. Vehicle justifications will be forwarded to the motor transport officer at the local TMP. Failure to rejustify assigned vehicles will result in the withdrawal of the vehicles and termination of their leases.
