To provide expert help to Public Sector fleet managers to optimise and electrify their fleets, support with charging infrastructure assessments, or the costs of leasing low-emissions vehicles.


  • Government ministries, departments, district hospitals, Crown Agencies and Entities, Crown Research Institutes, public schools, and tertiary education institutes.   
  • State Owned Enterprises, and local government are not eligible for co-funding. 

What kind of projects is it for?

The Government’s electric vehicles first policy aims to speed up the government fleet transition to low-emissions vehicles, as part of the Carbon Neutral Government Programme. In the coming years, government organisations will optimise their fleet size and replace vehicles with electric models, or hybrids if necessary.

The Fleet Transition Programme can partially contribute to the costs of the fleet optimisation process, including co-funding for:

  • Fleet audits
  • Fleet optimisation assessments
  • Charging infrastructure assessments
  • The cost of electric vehicle leasing and installation of associated charging infrastructure

Our co-funding and guidance support the Government’s plan to optimise and reduce fleet emissions(external link)
