Standardize Fleet Management

Standardize the management of our vehicle and equipment fleets. Currently, each agency, writes policy/regulation and has software, procedures, and management policy for their fleets. Conversely, we're all doing the same thing; tracking utilization, right-sizing, greening, tracking fuel, training, etc. On top of that, each agency is writing directives, regulations, policy, and even creating separate forms. Standardizing... more »

Home-To-Work Vehicle Usage

Home-to-Work (HTW) transportation imposes a major cost burden to the taxpayer. Current guidance that governs HTW utilization within the departments of the Executive Branch is overly permissive and leaves room for wide interpretation which leads to overuse and misuse of government vehicles. This is due primarily to a lack of definitions assigned to words in the key subsection of 31USC1344 which allows HTW usage, especially... more »

Vehicle Usage Savings

I think we could save a considerable amount of money and be more efficient if the vehicles we utilized to fit the work load of the area assigned.

Eliminate operator licensing program

Eliminate the Forest Service driver/operator licensing program. Training and subsequent documentation should be the responsibility of the supervisor and/or safety managment. Creating examiner programs and licensing is costly, it duplicates state licensing programs (in some areas), and is largely a safety program. So where does the the FS put it?

Fleet Vehicles

Within the U.S. Border Patrol, we use an array of service vehicles. For the most part we use Ford F-250's and Chevy Tahoe's. I have spoken with many other Patrol Agents and also station mechanics. We are all of the same opinion that it just does not make practical sense to keep on using such a large number of F-250's. The SUV's, whether it be a Chevy Tahoe or a Ford Explorer, get better gas mileage, are far superior... more »
