"Federal Fleet Sustainability Statutory Requirements" is designed to help agency fleet managers understand the Federal fleet energy and environmental statutory requirements. After completing this training, Federal fleet managers will know how compliance with these requirements is measured and have tools to select strategies that will enable the agencies to meet or exceed the requirements. Federal fleet statutory requirements covered in the training include:

  • The Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 1992 requirement to acquire AFVs;

  • The EPAct 2005 Section 701 requirement to use alternative fuel in dual-fueled AFVs;

  • The Section 141 of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 requirement to acquire low-greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting vehicles;

  • The EISA Section 142 requirements to reduce annual petroleum consumption, increase alternative fuel use, and create a petroleum reduction fleet plan;

  • The EISA Section 246 requirement to install renewable fuel pumps; and

  • GSA's Federal Management Regulation (FMR) Part 102-34 (Motor Vehicle Management) requirements to: (1) complete a structured vehicle allocation methodology (VAM) study and (2) use a fleet management information system for fleet vehicle data.
