License Plates

I don't know if this saves money, but it would certainly be more efficient. Currently, we order license plates when a vehicle comes in and the vehicle/equipment sits until the license plate comes in (sometimes 8+ weeks). So we have assets that can't be used for a couple of months. As a Fleet Manager it seems to me we should operate like local DMV's and order our license plates in bulk and in advance. When a new vehicle... more »

Eliminate Redundant Resource Requirements - Save 20% on Administrative Overhead

Currently, there are multiple functional roles that duplicate unnecessarily within DHS. Congress should provide the Secretary with the authority to reorganize support organizations to align in a more function efficient structure.

Centralizing support organizations such as construction management, facilities management, fleet management, human resources, acquisition management, IT services and other roles that require... more »

All Goverment Agencies Sell 5% of it's Oldest/Zero Utilized Motor Vehicle/Heavy Equipment Fleet on GSAXcess.

I suggest that every government agency be required to identify 5% of it's oldest/zero utilized Motor Vehicle/Heavy Equipment fleet semi-annually and report it on GSAXcess to be sold. Millions of dollars are wasted every year by obsolete equipment depreciating in our motor pools not being used. These are dollars that could be used to upgrade the federal fleet with greener, more efficient vehicles/equipment that would... more »

Oil Analysis Program

Implement a government wide mandated oil analysis program for vehicle and equipment fleets. Currently, quite a few agencies are changing oil by mileage. Some at 3000 miles or 400 hours (on equipment). By testing the oil, these intervals can be changed and possibly reduce the amount and frequency of oil changes per year. The costs associated with an oil analysis program is minimal in comparison to the unnecessary changing... more »

Contractors have too many government vehicles.

At the contractor sites within the Department of Energy, there are too many government vehicles being made available for the use of the contractor. At these sites, it becomes kind of like a game for the employees to get a government vehicle assigned to them for their use. The contractors are very good at writing up justifications for needs to expand their fleets. In reality, the fleets can be scaled back to save money... more »

Deploy Vehicle Idle Elimination and/or Reduction Technologies ($300M - $375M in Savings)

Deploy no idle/limited idle time vehicle technologies. Many law enforcement agencies and departments across the country require vehicles to sit at idle for significant periods of time (4-8 hours) during the course of a work day. This idle time is necessary due to hostile environmental conditions (extreme heat or cold) or other operational requirements.

Currently, anti idle technologies exist that allow interior enforcement... more »

Space Savings

Eliminate dual occupancy spaces for individuals based in one office with occasional stays in alternate locations. Currently, there are those that hold space in multiple locations. For example, a GS-15 holds office space in Washington, DC and a secondary space in Indianapolis (complete with conference table and executive furnishings); a location that is visited bi-monthly. This secondary space could accommodate 3-4 employees... more »

Universal Federal Fleet Management System

Create centralized federal fleet management system to track utilization of mobile assets so federal fleets may be right-sized, track maintenance costs and trends, gather performance data for analysis and inform consistent strategic decision-making related to fleet acquisitions. Current OMB reporting requires manual input that does not track specific or relevant enough data to a degree of accuracy that provides true insight... more »

Federal fleet carpooling to save $, reduce emissions

Use Outlook to schedule federal fleet travel between offices/branches so more than one person is in the car. Example: Two people are going to the same branch office for meetings but were not aware of the other person's travel plans. This coordination saves gas, emissions and wear and tear and costs nothing in terms of infrastructure. Fleet departments can more efficiently deploy their vehicles and employees still get... more »

Reduce Fleet Vehicles

Reduce the number of "You Drive It" (UDI)/fleet vehicles on military installations. The average cost of a GSA leased vehicle is $265/month, or $3,180/year. Getting rid of 15 vehicles could save a base $47,700+ per year.

If 200 military bases (about the number in CONUS) reduced their fleet by 15 vehicles, it would save $9,540,000+ per year.

This is just using the *average* GSA vehicle cost, so the figure is more... more »

Standardize Fleet Management

Standardize fleet management among all agencies. Everyone is reinventing the same mouse trap by printing or rewriting manuals and instructions when we are all basically doing the same thing; tracking utilization, maintenance, and fuel. even the software for fleet management could be standardized. The savings in time and money could be substantial.
