§17501. Definitions

In this chapter, the following definitions apply:

(1) Executive agency.—The term "executive agency"—

(A) means an executive agency (as that term is defined in section 105 of title 5) that operates at least 300 motor vehicles; but

(B) does not include the Tennessee Valley Authority.


(2) Motor vehicle.—The term "motor vehicle" means—

(A) a vehicle self-propelled or drawn by mechanical power; but not

(B) a vehicle designed or used for military field training, combat, or tactical purposes, or any other special purpose vehicle exempted from the requirements of this chapter by the Administrator of General Services.

(Pub. L. 107–217, Aug. 21, 2002, 116 Stat. 1283.)

17501 40:913. Pub. L. 99–272, title XV, §15313, Apr. 7, 1986, 100 Stat. 338.

In this section, the text of 40:913(2)–(4) is omitted as unnecessary because the complete names of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, the Administrator of General Services, and the Comptroller General of the United States are used the first time the terms appear in a section.

Before clause (1), the words "this chapter" were in the original "this title", meaning title XV (§§15101 to 15313) of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (Public Law 99–272, 100 Stat. 330). In clause (2)(B), the words "this chapter" are substituted for "this part" as the probable intent of Congress because title XV of the Act does not contain part designations and the intention was probably to refer to title XV, which is restated as this chapter.

§17502. Monitoring system

The head of each executive agency shall designate one office, officer, or employee of the agency—

(1) to establish and operate a central monitoring system for the motor vehicle operations of the agency, related activities, and related reporting requirements; and

(2) provide oversight of those operations, activities, and requirements.

(Pub. L. 107–217, Aug. 21, 2002, 116 Stat. 1283.)

In this chapter, the words "executive agency" are substituted for "executive agency, including the Department of Defense" to eliminate unnecessary words.

§17503. Data collection

(a) Cost Identification and Analysis.—The head of each executive agency shall develop a system to identify, collect, and analyze data with respect to all costs (including obligations and outlays) the agency incurs in the operation, maintenance, acquisition, and disposition of motor vehicles, including vehicles owned or leased by the Federal Government and privately owned vehicles used for official purposes.

(b) Requirements for Data Systems.—

(1) Scope of requirements.—In cooperation with the Comptroller General of the United States and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, the Administrator of General Services shall prescribe requirements governing the establishment and operation by executive agencies of the systems required by subsection (a), including requirements with respect to data on the costs and uses of motor vehicles and with respect to the uniform collection and submission of the data.

(2) Conformity with principles and standards.—Requirements prescribed under this section shall conform to accounting principles and standards issued by the Comptroller General. Each executive agency shall comply with those requirements.

In subsection (a), the words "including vehicles owned or leased by the Federal Government and privately owned vehicles" are substituted for "Government-owned vehicles, leased vehicles, and privately owned vehicles" for clarity.

§17504. Agency statements with respect to motor vehicle use

(a) Contents of Statement.—The head of each executive agency shall include with the appropriation request the agency submits under section 1108 of title 31 for each fiscal year, a statement—

(1) specifying—

(A) the total motor vehicle acquisition, maintenance, leasing, operation, and disposal costs (including obligations and outlays) the agency incurred in the most recently completed fiscal year; and

(B) an estimate of those costs for the fiscal year in which the request is submitted and for the succeeding fiscal year; and


(2) justifying why the existing and any new motor vehicle acquisition, maintenance, leasing, operation, and disposal requirements of the agency cannot be met through the Interagency Fleet Management System the Administrator of General Services operates, a qualified private fleet management firm, or any other method which is less costly to the Federal Government.


(b) Compliance With Requirements.—The head of each executive agency shall comply with the requirements prescribed under section 17503(b) of this title in preparing each statement required under subsection (a).

(b) Contents of Summary and Analysis.—Each summary and analysis shall include a review, for the fiscal year preceding the fiscal year in which the budget is submitted, the current fiscal year, and the fiscal year for which the budget is submitted, of the cost savings that have been achieved, that are estimated will be achieved, and that could be achieved, in the acquisition, maintenance, leasing, operation, and disposal of motor vehicles by executive agencies through—

(1) the use of a qualified private fleet management firm or another private contractor;

(2) increased reliance by executive agencies on the Interagency Fleet Management System the Administrator of General Services operates; or

(3) other existing motor vehicle management systems.

"SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

"This Act may be cited as the 'Federal Vehicle Repair Cost Savings Act of 2015'.

"SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

"Congress finds that, in March 2013, the Government Accountability Office issued a report that confirmed that—

"(1) there are approximately 588,000 vehicles in the civilian Federal fleet;

"(2) Federal agencies spent approximately $975,000,000 on repair and maintenance of the Federal fleet in 2011;

"(3) remanufactured vehicle components, such as engines, starters, alternators, steering racks, and clutches, tend to be less expensive than comparable new replacement parts; and

"(4) the United States Postal Service and the Department of the Interior both informed the Government Accountability Office that the respective agencies rely on the use of remanufactured vehicle components to reduce costs.

"SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.

"In this Act—

"(1) the term 'Federal agency' has the meaning given that term in section 102 of title 40, United States Code; and

"(2) the term 'remanufactured vehicle component' means a vehicle component (including an engine, transmission, alternator, starter, turbocharger, steering, or suspension component) that has been returned to same-as-new, or better, condition and performance by a standardized industrial process that incorporates technical specifications (including engineering, quality, and testing standards) to yield fully warranted products.

"SEC. 4. REQUIREMENT TO USE REMANUFACTURED VEHICLE COMPONENTS.

"The head of each Federal agency—

"(1) shall encourage the use of remanufactured vehicle components to maintain Federal vehicles, if using such components reduces the cost of maintaining the Federal vehicles while maintaining quality; and

"(2) shall not encourage the use of remanufactured vehicle components to maintain Federal vehicles, if using such components—

"(A) does not reduce the cost of maintaining Federal vehicles;

"(B) lowers the quality of vehicle performance, as determined by the employee of the Federal agency responsible for the repair decision; or

"(C) delays the return to service of a vehicle."

§17509. Applicability

(a) Priority in Reducing Headquarters Use.—The heads of executive agencies shall give first priority to meeting the goals established by the President under section 17507(a) of this title by reducing the costs of administrative motor vehicles used at the headquarters and regional headquarters of executive agencies, rather than by reducing the costs of motor vehicles used by line agency personnel working in agency field operations or activities.

(b) Regulations, Standards, and Definitions.—The President shall require the Administrator of General Services, in cooperation with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, to prescribe appropriate regulations, standards, and definitions to ensure that executive agencies meet the goals established under section 17507(a) of this title in the manner prescribed by subsection (a).
