Geotab has announced a single-source General Services Administration contract to provide telematics solutions to more than 400,000 GSA-leased and owned vehicles. At our deadline, financial details were not disclosed.
The contract will enable GSA to leverage Geotab’s Electric Vehicle Suitability Assessment (EVSA) and other fleet management tools to meet executive orders that focus on “sustainability and efficiency,” the company said. The GSA contract also includes Geotab’s data sharing solution which allows for multiple data streams to allow agencies to manage a separate database of telematics data, the company said.
In 2019, Geotab was awarded the world’s largest telematics contract by the GSA. At that time, GSA Fleet, a division of GSA, which provides centralized procurement for U.S. federal agencies, said that the Canadian company would equip 217,000 vehicles with Geotab’s fleet management technology.
While Geotab, which has 50,000 customers in 160 countries, is considered the dominant telematics fleet player in government markets, not everything has been smooth. Earlier this month, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims halted Geotab USA’s performance of a $300 million telematics fleet tracking device contract for the U.S. Postal Service, according to published reports. San Francisco-based Samsara protested the award last March.
