AMS asking for VINs?

Does anyone know why AMS has started requiring VINs for all field vehicles? This seems like way too much information to be giving to an client and I can't see any way that it protects them to have this information.

Could be multiple reasons:
1. To verify ownership/insurability
2. For reporting to the feds in the event that authorities are alerted
3. Covering their a$$es in the event that an accident/incident occurs

As with most government contracts, who knows the why's to some of the bureaucracy and red tape that is involved.

When I was a construction superintendent for a large development company I was required to obtain VIN's & proof of insurance for those VIN's from all vehicles owned by any subs that would be present on any jobsite. It was obviously a protection for my employer against any liability caused by those vehicles. Funny thing is, they never asked for a VIN or proof of insurance from my personal vehicle that they reimbursed me for using daily.

I wouldn't want to give it to them.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

I agree. If proof of insurance isn't enough, move on to the next guy.
