   14         Section 1. Centralized fleet management plan.—
   15         (1) The Department of Management Services shall prepare a
   16  plan regarding the creation, administration, and maintenance of
   17  a centralized fleet of state-owned motor vehicles. By November
   18  1, 2016, the department shall submit the plan to the Governor,
   19  the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of
   20  Representatives.
   21         (2) The plan for centralizing all state-owned motor
   22  vehicles must provide a method for:
   23         (a) Using break-even mileage in the assignment and
   24  administration of motor vehicles to state agencies and employees
   25  to determine when it becomes cost effective to the state to
   26  provide assigned motor vehicles to employees.
   27         (b) Managing a fleet of motor vehicles for short-term use
   28  and shared-use motor vehicle pools.
   29         (c) Developing a motor vehicle replacement plan and budget,
   30  which must take into account operating and maintenance costs of
   31  the centralized fleet.
   32         (d) Purchasing motor vehicles necessary for the operation
   33  of the centralized fleet.
   34         (e) Repairing and maintaining motor vehicles.
   35         (f) Monitoring the use of motor vehicles and enforcing
   36  regulations regarding proper use.
   37         (g) Maintaining records related to the operation and
   38  maintenance of motor vehicles and the administration of the
   39  fleet.
   40         (h) Disposing of motor vehicles that are no longer needed
   41  or the use of which is not cost effective.
   42         (i) Monitoring and managing motor vehicle disposal outcomes
   43  to determine the most cost-effective method of disposing fleet
   44  vehicles.
   45         (j) Implementing a fuel management program and a
   46  standardized methodology for reporting fuel data.
   47         (k) Determining when it would be cost-efficient to lease a
   48  motor vehicle from a third-party vendor instead of using a
   49  state-owned motor vehicle.
   50         (l) Determining when it would be cost-efficient to use
   51  alternative fuels or to lease or purchase alternative energy
   52  motor vehicles for fleet use.
   53         (m) Equipping fleet motor vehicles with real-time
   54  locational monitoring systems.
   55         (3) In developing the plan, the department shall evaluate
   56  the costs and benefits of operating and maintaining a
   57  centralized motor vehicle fleet compared to the costs and
   58  benefits of contracting with a third-party vendor for the
   59  operation and maintenance of a centralized motor vehicle fleet.
   60         Section 2. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law.
