COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 06 (1979-1980)

TO: AGENCIES AND DEPARTMENTS ADDRESSED

SUBJECT: USE OF PRIVATELY-OWNED VEHICLES WHEN PUBLICLY-OWNED VEHICLES ARE AVAILABLE


Several agencies have requested the Department's position on the mileage rate an employee may be reimbursed for using a privately-owned vehicle in performance of his official duties when a publicly-owned vehicle is available.

Section 112.061 (7) (d) 1, Florida Statutes, provides that "privately-owned vehicles for official travel in lieu of publicly-owned vehicles or common carrier may be authorized by the agency head if a publicly-owned vehicle is not available..." Consequently, if a state-owned vehicle is available, an employee may not be reimbursed for the use of his own vehicle.

Any questions regarding this memorandum should be sent to:
