Division: Fleet Services and Purchasing and Materials Management
The City of Toronto’s Fleet Services division and the Procurement and Materials Management division have together won the EPIC INNOVATION “Team Innovation Award,” presented by ProcureCon Canada. The award was received for an innovative collaboration initiative with local and provincial cooperative procurement networks resulting in lower costs of vehicles, equipment, supplies and services. These lower costs result in greater value for taxpayer dollars and allow Fleet Services to improve its range of vehicles and equipment. The practice also reduces cycle times and costs through modernized and streamlined practices resulting in optimized asset life, reduced environmental impacts, and improved customer service.
