Why Did California Create this Contract?

Three goals were identified:​

  1. Ensure each asset is truly needed

  2. Ensure each asset is as green as possible

  3. Once deployed ensure that each fleet asset is used in a cost-effective manner

 

The following key tenets were essential to the success of managing the State fleet:

  • Robust zero emission vehicle (ZEV) reporting

  • Departments must be able to control their own data

    • With many departments within the State, each department needs the ability to control their own data, what data gets reported on and how the State is able to see the data so that department operations are not compromised

  • Top-tier security information protocols

  • Integration capabilities with multiple fleet management systems

  • Participation in the California Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) continuous testing program

    • With emissions-centric telematics data for vehicles in the state, BAR would be able to grant vehicles an emissions pass (certification sticker) without the vehicles ever needing to do a manual inspection
