Statewide contract gives government fleets in Oklahoma access to Geotab
Table of contents
The Sooner state joins a growing list signing statewide contracts to streamline and simplify the addition of telematics solutions to government fleets.
In 2020, the Oklahoma Governor’s Office issued an executive order that all government fleets in the State must be equipped with a telematics solution that is compatible with the State’s fleet management information system (FMIS).
To facilitate this order, Geotab has been added to the Oklahoma State contract, which simplifies and streamlines the process agencies need to follow to add telematics to their fleet vehicles. All government entities can adopt the statewide contract for telematics.
Meeting the conditions of the executive order, Geotab can be seamlessly integrated into the State’s FMIS, and share the required data points, including vehicle utilization and mileage driven per vehicle. Through the statewide contract, Oklahoma government agencies will have access to even more data through the MyGeotab platform providing data-driven fleet insights that unlock other opportunities to improve efficiency and cut costs.

How does Geotab help my agency meet the state mandate?
Geotab is dedicated to providing fleets with the solution they need. This means that we are delivering you a solution that meets the Governor’s Office Executive Order.
With Geotab, you will have the ability to:
- Right-size your agency’s fleet operations by identifying under and over-utilized vehicles
- Track frequency of use, mileage driven and scheduled maintenance milestones with automated odometer logging
- Ensure all vehicles are fully integrated into Oklahoma’s FMIS system
In addition, Geotab automates the reporting related to these key requirements of the Executive Order, making all of the data accurate and up-to-date without the need to dedicate personnel resources to these tasks — all on one platform.
Who can use the state contract?
The state contract can be used by any local municipality, state agency or department located in the State of Oklahoma.
Oklahoma agencies that want to adopt the contract can simply execute a piggyback contract agreement using SW1028A as the contract number.
