National Public Sector Procurement
F4F is launching a national public fleet procurement program through a partnership with the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) designed to increase the deployment of alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure by aggregating demand and reducing upfront costs. Participants will be able to purchase and lease discounted vehicles off of NJPA's wide variety of contracts.
National Private Sector Procurement
Request for Information
The purpose of this Request for Information (“RFI”) is to facilitate a process to gauge interest from trade associations or other agencies that have a national membership base or the capacity to reach a national target audience to create a cooperative procurement program that includes alternative fuel vehicles (AFV). The target audience is private sector fleets, or the commercial market. The F4F project currently includes a national-scale public sector procurement initiative for AFVs along with fleet services, parts and equipment. The National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) and the F4F team have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to join forces in promoting AFVs through NJPA’s national vehicle program already in place. NJPA has nine national vendors under contract that offer a selection of fleet services, parts, equipment, school buses, and vehicles and chassis, with AFV upfit options for purchase and possible leasing arrangements. It would be ideal to set up a program similar, yet smaller in scale, to the NJPA program to respond to the needs of the private sector fleet market.
