Executive Order 13149: Greening the Government Through Federal Fleet and Transportation Efficiency, April 21, 2000   [open pdf - 142KB]

"To achieve compliance with the requirements of E.O. 13149, DHS is urging its components to acquire 75 percent of new covered light-duty vehicles as AFVs, and to use alternative fuel in these vehicles a majority of the time, where the vehicles and alternative fuels are readily available and do not adversely affect mission accomplishment. The decision to take advantage of a surcharge program that adds $10 monthly to the cost of every vehicle leased through the General Services Administration (GSA) to help cover the higher incremental cost of many AFV models (compared to conventional vehicles) rests with each bureau and factors in alternative fuel availability, funding availability, and mission needs. DHS will endeavor to acquire light duty vehicles with a higher fuel economy of 3 mpg FY 2005, consistent with mission suitability. DHS will also investigate the possibility of adding to its own refueling facilities, although the majority of the fleet not already using them neither starts from nor returns to a common location. In addition to the Customs and Border Protection sites with refueling capability, a few of the training facilities operated by the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and United States Secret Service have the capability, but are not readily accessible to vehicles not associated with the those facilities."
