Bellevue WA Names CEI for Government Fleet Accident Management

The City of Belle­vue, WA, has part­nered with the CEI Group, Inc. (CEI) to pro­vide acci­dent man­age­ment ser­vices for its munic­i­pal fleet of 700 vehi­cles.

The agree­ment calls for CEI to pro­vide auto body repairs for all of the city’s depart­ments, includ­ing its police, fire, util­i­ties, and parks and com­mu­ni­ty ser­vices depart­ments.

In nam­ing CEI, Tom Wall of the city’s fleet man­age­ment team cit­ed the company’s abil­i­ty to stream­line the fleet’s admin­is­tra­tive process­es by review­ing body repair esti­mates, track­ing repair costs, and pro­vid­ing detailed invoic­es direct­ly to the city’s risk man­age­ment staff.

He also not­ed that “all the body shops in the CEI net­work have gone through a strin­gent screen­ing process that guar­an­tees qual­i­ty providers.”

The city’s agree­ment with CEI was facil­i­tat­ed by the con­tract the State of Wash­ing­ton award­ed CEI after a com­pet­i­tive bid­ding process.  The state’s con­tract enables gov­ern­ments and gov­ern­ment agen­cies with­in the state to work with CEI with­out issu­ing their own request for pro­pos­als.

For the last four years, Bellevue’s fleet has been named one of the “100 Best Fleets in Amer­i­ca,” spon­sored by 100 Best Fleets and Gov­ern­ing mag­a­zine.  Belle­vue, a sub­urb of Seat­tle, is the state’s fifth largest city, with a pop­u­la­tion of 122,000.
