The State of Colorado Department of Personnel and Administration
(Department) in collaboration with NASPO Participating States is
interested in receiving information on Original Equipment
Manufacturer (OEM) Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV). Additional
information on topics not listed but applicable to NGV vehicles
is also welcome.
In November of 2011 Governor Mary Fallin of the State of
Oklahoma, and Governor John Hickenlooper from the State of
Colorado and the Governors from several NASPO Participating
States agreed in principle to a "Memorandum
of Understanding" (MOU) for the purpose of establishing a
coordinated effort between Oklahoma and NASPO Participating
States (States) to attract automobile manufacturers in the U.S.
to develop a functional and affordable original equipment
manufacturer (OEM) fleet natural gas vehicle (NGV) that will
also meet public demand. The States recognize the tremendous
benefits and unique attributes of clean burning natural gas and
understand the significant opportunity Natural Gas Vehicles
(NGV) presents to save State and taxpayer dollars by forging an
energy future that utilizes domestic energy resources to fuel
our nation's transportation needs. Through the joint
solicitation of a Multi-State Request for Proposal (Joint-RFP)
that aggregates annual State fleet vehicle procurements, the
States will endeavor to provide a demand base sufficient to
support the design, manufacture, and sale of functional and
affordable OEM NGVs by automotive manufacturers in the U.S. As
of April of 2012, Wyoming, Mississippi, Utah, Kentucky,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maine, West Virginia, New Mexico, Texas, and
Louisiana have signed on to support the multi-state joint RFI
and RFP solicitation.
