The administration and financial management of fleet is very organisational specific. It largely depends on donor requirements and organisational policies.
For example, in some organizations, vehicles are restricted to specific projects and others utilize vehicle pools to serve multiple projects. Driving policies can vary from a strict reliance on a dedicated driver from the organization, to using staff to drive the vehicles. The administrative policies of the individual organization will dictate which approach will be utilized.
