It's not clear if actual maintaince is being done at auto dealerships, or if they are just being used to purchase parts through.  Either way there are lower cost providers.  Covert Ford, Covert Buick, Capitol Chevrolet, etc shouldn't show up on expense reports.

We do vehicle maintenance in-house for everything except the RideShare vehicles.  When the Vehicle Maintenance Department requests parts, our Procurement Department buys them from the best source.  When the least expensive parts can be found from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) via the dealerships like Ford, Chevy, New Flyer, that's where we get them.  OEMs also have parts that aftermarket sources sometimes don’t have access to.  Thanks!  ^Vehicle Maintenance´╗┐

Explain Misc. Expenses that fill the report. There shouldn't be any Misc. Expenses all should be itemized.
