In addition to 330 tracking devices already owned by the GAM, the council will install an additional 1,800 devices for a total of 2,130, the statement said.
The statement cited Hussam Najdawi, GAM fleet executive director, as saying that the project is part of the municipality's plan to develop the supervision and field inspection system, adding that the devices will help ensure no violations are committed and the vehicles are used for their designated purposes.
Najdawi said that any employee who violates the rules of using the vehicles without justification will be held accountable.
Director of the e-tracking project, Mohammad Dana, said the devices will help track field tasks and detect any inappropriate driving behaviours, malfunctions, speeding and unauthorised personal use of the municipality's vehicles.
The project is set for completion towards the beginning of 2020, the director said, noting that once all three phases are complete, the monitoring will be conducted through a central control room at the e-tracking department, as well as the inspection department at the GAM’s fleet directorate and other managerial units.
