A government employee, transporting government owned material, from one government location to another government location, either on public roads or not, is not subject to any DOT regulations.
WVU employees can load a WVU truck with WVU chemicals (carefully) and drive to any other WVU campus.
DOT regulates transportation in commerce, and the government transportation of government materials as described above is not a commercial activity..
