16.05 Special provisions for vehicles

The management and care of UNAIDS vehicles have special provisions.
  • Vehicles will be assigned a barcode number. Wherever possible, the label should be affixed next to the manufacturer's identification of the chassis number (inside the vehicle cabin).
  • A detailed vehicle maintenance log must be kept. The depreciation of the vehicle depends as much on the time elapsed since the purchase date as it does on the miles/kilometres covered.
A vehicle maintenance log can be found in the Field operations manual, which is available for download on the UNAIDS intranet:

These provisions relate to the management of vehicles as an asset but not the procurement of vehicles. For additional information on the procurement of vehicles, refer to Chapter 12: Procurement of Goods & Logistics.
