Purchase of Standard & Specialist Vehicles


Central government and wider public sector can buy standard, converted and specialist vehicles.


This agreement will combine the existing Vehicle Purchase RM6060 and Vehicle Conversions RM3814 agreements.

You will be able to buy from a vehicle manufacturer and/or a converter, who can make changes to standard vehicles, through direct award or further competition.

Vehicles available under this agreement will include:

  • standard and specialist cars
  • light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles including refuse collection and waste management
  • minibuses, buses and coaches
  • mobile trailers and mobile units for health and other sectors
  • blue light emergency vehicles of all types (such as operational cars, police carrier units, dog vans, command and control units and lightweight fire fighting vehicles)

You can access quotes for standard build cars and vans through our fleet portal. The portal will also help you to find the right vehicle for your needs.
