University Vehicles

Purchase

New vehicle purchases for UQ faculties, departments and centres are ordered through P&F Fleet Services under the whole-of-Government Panel Arrangement with QFleet. This arrangement and better asset management practices can provide significant savings and whole of life cost containment for the University.

Customer responsibilities under this Arrangement include preparing yearly reports on the expected number of new vehicle purchases for the period 01 July to 30 June. The Government (QFleet) requires this indicative data by 26 March each year. This is supplied from the faculty procurement groups to the FBS procurement group, P&F Fleet Services and Qfleet .

Sale

The vehicle or plant intended for disposal is delivered to Building 85, Garage Compound, cleaned and valued, then sent to public auction.

Reconciled funds are deposited to an account as nominated on the PF330 Purchase & disposal form.

Administration and Registration

Vehicle Administration

Vehicle administration begins on receipt of a new vehicle at the P&F Fleet Services Garage (building 85 St Lucia Campus). The vehicle is inspected and released to the custodian after vehicle and account details are uploaded to the Archibus Fleet software.

Staff who manage these assets can request access to Archibus. Using this software can enable staff to track kilometre usage and vehicle costs to better enable efficient usage, and also to access the training guides.

P&F Fleet Services staff can also provide reports on usage and costs per kilometre as requested, or can edit chart of account or other vehicle details e.g. change of vehicle custodian. Contact our staff at FleetServices-StLucia@pf.uq.edu.au.

Archibus

Registration

The annual registration of all University vehicles occurs on our common due date of 01/11.

UQ has a unique identifier under which vehicles should be registered and this is managed during vehicle purchase.

At registration renewal these fees are paid in bulk and the charges journaled to vehicle accounts as provided.

Infringements

Any vehicle infringement notices issued by the Queensland Police or other road authorities are sent to the University Fleet Officer for processing. In the case of departmental or executive vehicles these are forwarded to the vehicle custodian to provide a statutory declaration back to Queensland Police.

For University Pool vehicles, the driver is identified by the vehicle booking log and asked to provide address and licence details. The University Fleet Officer then processes the declaration back to the Queensland Police for reissuing to the individual.

Parking

  • UQ plates do not provide parking infringement immunity.
  • UQ decal and plated vehicles are authorised on UQ campuses in:
    • Service & Maintenance bays
    • 14P (All-day) zones (all campuses and sites)
    • Conifer Knoll Car Park, Level 1, Restricted Zone
  • Penalties can be enforced for parking outside these zones.

Tolls

Toll transponders are placed in all P&F Pool vehicles therefore access to toll roads is unrestricted.

Fuel Cards

How do I order a fuel card?

Fuel cardsFuel cards are ordered for fleet vehicles via whole of government supply. This aggregates volume to obtain competitive pricing using Caltex and BP cards.

Fuel cards can be ordered by contacting vehicles@pf.uq.edu.au or telephone 336 53316.

What happens if I lose or damage the fuel card?

Lost, stolen or damaged fuel cards should be reported immediately to FleetServices-StLucia@pf.uq.edu.au

What reporting is required?

Custodians and drivers are required to input kilometre readings at Caltex and BP fuel sites when paying with a fuel card.

Details of fuel usage from these two suppliers are reported monthly to P&F Fleet Services and uploaded to Archibus. These charges are then journaled to vehicle accounts.

Where can I fill the fleet vehicles?

P&F Fleet Services provides service and maintenance to all University passenger vehicles, trucks, tractors and plant. These are logged in the Archibus system and available to view by registered users.

Vehicle service information and due dates are also visible on service stickers on vehicle windscreens for vehicle custodian’s reference.

Breakdown Service

All UQ vehicles are covered nationally for breakdown and roadside assistance by RACQ Fleet Care.

  • In all cases of breakdown the RACQ is to be advised in the first instance on 1800 648 058.
