Using a Joint Procurement Process to Increase ZEV Adoption Nationwide

The project will develop a multi-state zero emission vehicle (ZEV ) procurement process for state, county, and municipal fleets. Efforts will focus on convening procurement officials in interested states, engaging with national Clean Cities coalitions and similar organizations, and establishing a workgroup of government procurement experts to develop a multi-state model procurement contract that accommodates individual procurement requirements. The project will promote use of the model contract by public and private fleets with the help of an industry-focused advisory group and the existing West Coast Electric Fleets and ZEV Memorandum of Understanding state fleet initiatives.
