Purpose of Memo
Historically, the Department has utilized the Red Book when determining car valuation. However, the cost of purchasing these books has increased since the initial purchase order. To mitigate the continually rising cost of purchasing the Red Book, the Department has explored other more costeffective means of determining car valuations. Effective immediately, all car valuations for TAFDC and EAEDC will be determined by the Kelley Blue Book website found at www.kbb.com.
This Field Operations Memo advises TAO staff about:
- accessing the Kelley Blue Book site; and
- determining car values on the Kelley Blue Book site.
