The Public Service Commission (PSC) has installed in their office the GPS monitoring system to monitor the routes of all government-owned vehicles, easy and simple but the question remains, does the monitoring team operate on shifts to catch G-Vehicles that roam after working hours?
Choosing to use GPS Tracking is an excellent idea by the Vanuatu Government and it can help improve visibility and deflate bloated spending so the Government can save a little bit of money and help provide better services on time.
By keeping a close eye on government Vehicles Tracking, the idea is to reduce fuel consumption, prevent theft and unauthorized use, and maximize labor inefficiencies.
Through GPS, it is supposed that Vehicles travelling beyond chosen boundaries will trigger alerts to help get them back on track. Deviations from authorized zones and schedules can be caught and corrected almost instantly, preventing theft, vandalism, misuse, and increased liability.
In Vanuatu the images of Government Vehicles speak for themselves and not forgetting the drunken driver who does decorate the scene with a very lively VAN2017 Shirt.
Meanwhile, images of G-Vehicles will be posted to remind the Government to keep to its word and keep G-Vehicles of the street during non-working hours but again the public will ask “Whatever happened to GPS tracking”
