Passenger Vehicle Purchase Request

-

How do I get a new vehicle?

  1. Complete the Passenger Vehicle Request Form.
  2. Have the form signed by your agency director.
  3. Submit the form to vehicleapproval@des.wa.gov.

What happens next?

  • The Director of the Department of Enterprise Services or authorized representative gives written approval. RCW 43.19.620.
  • A Fleet Operations representative is assigned to your request and will contact you.

What if I am not with a state agency?

Customers who are not state agencies can use the contracts to purchase directly from auto dealers. Fleet Operations will handle this process for state agencies with fleets managed by DES.

  • Executive Order 20-01 directs agencies to prioritize purchasing of Zero Emission vehicles when available.
  • Directors must consider the benefits and costs for purchases that affect greenhouse gases or other toxic substances.
  • Directors shall also prioritize battery electric vehicles or better emerging technology.
  • For vehicle classes in which battery electric vehicles are not available, agencies shall prioritize the most cost effective low emission options available.
