Dude, where's my car?

One of the sweetest perks of working your way up the state bureaucratic ladder is a state vehicle. But the Associated Press finds that New Hampshire lacks adequate oversight over how those vehicles are assigned and used:

New Hampshire does a poor job keeping track of the nearly 2,000 passenger vehicles used by state employees, according to a recent audit.

There is no formal statewide monitoring of the vehicles, nor is there any statewide agency in charge of requisitioning, maintaining or disposing of cars. Some departments have written policies and fleet managers; some do not. Instead, each department makes decisions for itself, leading to a dearth of quality data and poor use of resources, the audit found. While some employees are reimbursed hefty sums for using their own cars, many cars go underused.
