Vehicle maintenance and repairs (including installation of special equipment or accessories) performed by department staff or by private vendors with payment processed by the responsible department are to be entered at: https://scsapps.unl.edu/MileageEntry/DeptVehicleCostEntry.aspx

Approval

Vehicle operating expenses fall into two categories, Transportation Services responsibility and operating department responsibility.

Maintenance and/or repairs estimated to cost more than $50.00 require pre-approval from the department responsible for the repair expense. Approval for maintenance and/or repairs when Transportation Services is responsible may be obtained by calling (402) 472-2422, or 472-7937. Approval for maintenance and/or repairs when the operating department is responsible can be obtained by contacting the departments’ vehicle coordinator. When requested, Transportation Services will advise or assist departments in approving vehicle repairs. After hours within the Lincoln calling area, call the University operator (402) 472-7211 for connection with the proper individual. After hours outside the Lincoln calling area, call (800) 332-0265 for connection with the proper individual.

Failure to secure approval for expenditures over $50.00 from the department responsible for the vehicles operating expense may result in the entire cost of repair being charged to the using department or other corrective actions.
