  • The desired outcome of a successful SAM program is to: a) Total Cost of Ownership Leveraged buying such as through the SmartBUY Program can help lower the cost of the software licenses as well as on maintenance. Aggregating requirements can put the Government in a better negotiating position. Better accountability for software, (ie what you have and where) can lead to better management based on usage and currency. You can retire older versions that you may be paying maintenance on and you can redistribute Reengineering the processes for acquiring software can lead to great savings through more efficient and effective management of the process to acquire and manage these assets. b) Payments to vendors are more accurate if delivery of correct products and services can be verified in a timely manner. c) Faster disaster recovery – A SAM program tracks inventory, deployment and usage of software, resulting in quicker and easier recreation of the software environment in the event of a disaster. d) Improve version and patch management thus security by providing visibility of software installed and use it to patch management. e) Compliance with software licensing terms can be verified if a robust asset management program is in place.
  • Through a GSA Pilot, a proof of concept of an integrated organization-wide SAM program is being developed. OGP plans to draft policies and processes based on interviews with agency SAM representatives, results of the Pilot, and the Inter-Agency Committee
  • Challenges It’s hard- Requires change management and buy-in from all impacted stakeholders Software vendors are very savvy. They know how to game the system and are experts at it Requires improvements in the current way we do things (business processes) Commercial sector doesn’t do it well- current technology only addresses 20% of the problem. We have met with industry leaders in SAM and everyone is facing the same obstacles Data standards for feeder systems do not exist - feeder systems accustomed to working on their individual priorities. Data elements listed in Pegasys are not always standard. For example, the ACT number used is unique to GSA In spite of these and many other challenges, we push on..!
  • This figure is based on the latest Financial Report of the United States. It reflects the replacement cost of the assets currently held by the government. OGP works collaboratively with our agency partners and other stakeholders to identify or develop best practices to improve the government’s management of its assets. Whether through the issuance of formal Regulations or Bulletins, or simply through informal guidance, OGP is a strong advocate for effective Governmentwide asset management. An industry expert estimates that strong asset management can save the organization 10% of the value of its inventory annually. This equates to a saving of over $100B. Although many effective practices are already in place (such as inventory systems, use of current technology, etc), there is still much room for improvement across the government.
  • We are currently working with Idaho National Laboratory to develop an automated system to report property management performance measures , including the volume of donations, sales, disposals, and a record of accountable property. We have recently developed a property management evaluation and compliance review tool which is being tested in GSA and will be used to evaluate the largest Executive agencies. We work with our various stakeholders through our Interagency Committee on Property Management (ICPM) and Property Management Executive Council (PMEC) activities but also by participating in the National Property Management Association at the local and national levels, the National Association of State Agencies for Surplus Property, the Users and Screeners Association, and until its demise the Joint Financial Management Improvement Program and its revision of the Inventory, Supplies and Materials System Requirements and Property Management Systems Requirements. We have also included meetings with ASTM International and the Uniform Code Council, Inc. on the use of voluntary consensus standards, along with the use of RFID technology.
  • This provides a view of the current property management regulations and those being developed. There are a number of regulations that impact personal property management and we are reviewing and revising each regulation every five years, as appropriate, to ensure they are current and reflect the current state of the art regarding the use and disposition of the Government's assets.
  • General comments on MT’s Federal Fleet Policy Federal fleet statistics: (Source: FY 2006 Federal Fleet Report) Total Federal fleet is 630,740 vehicles (non-tactical only) Total Federal fleet operating costs is $3.6 billion Total Federal fleet miles operated is over 5 billion miles Total Federal fleet fuel consumption is 348 million gallons Federal aircraft statistics: (Source: FY 2006 FAIRS report) 11 executive agencies own 1456 aircraft Federal agencies spent $936,292,964 to operate both owned and leased aircraft. Agencies supported a total of 435,834 flight and flight-related hours. What do we do? Oversee the operation and management of the Federal motor vehicle and aircraft fleets, providing liaison between agencies and government oversight offices, and the motor vehicle industry as a whole. Specific areas of importance include: Promulgate Government-wide regulations and policy Provide input to Legislation and Executive Orders Administer the Federal License Plate Program Conduct the Fleet Review Initiative Manage the Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST) and produce the annual Federal Fleet Report Manage the Federal Aviation Interactive Reporting System (FAIRS) and produce annual Aircraft Report Coordinate the Vehicle Registration Project Establish Capital Asset Planning guidance for motor vehicles and aircraft Coordinate activities of the Federal Fleet Policy Council (FEDFLEET) and the Interagency Committee for Aviation Policy (ICAP) Conduct annual national Fleet Workshops and quarterly meetings Publish the quarterly Vehicle Views newsletter Coordinate Federal fleet activities with local governments and the private sector, as necessary Fleet information clearinghouse FAST/FAIRS Comments FAST and FAIRS are on-line internet reporting tools developed to consolidate many different reporting requirements concerning the Federal fleet Jointly sponsored by GSA, the Department of Energy, and the Energy Information Administration Automated GSA’s Federal Fleet report that previously was a manual process taking more than a year to publish (now takes 2-3 weeks) Consolidated OMB’s A-11, Exhibit 33 budget request for motor vehicles in 2004. This is the only part of A-11 that is automated. Agency budget and fleet offices work together to provide A-11 budget accomplishments and projections GSA/MT reviews all agency A-11 submissions and provides overview comments to OMB Copies of the Federal Fleet Report can be found on the GSA website at: vehicle management Copies of the Federal Aircraft Report can be found on the GSA website at:
  • Each agency develops their own Vehicle Allocation Methodology based upon the mission that the vehicle will perform. Question that should be asked are: What mission does the vehicle support? Will the vehicle carry passengers? How many? Will the vehicle carry cargo? Where will the vehicle be operated? City or rural? Rough terrain? Are there fuel economy and alternative fuel considerations? Are there special needs (occupant size, physical handicaps, etc.)? Always looking for the right vehicle for the “job” with emphasis on using the smallest vehicle possible to perform the agency’s mission MT/Fleet has published Federal Property Management Bulletin B-9, Documented Structured Vehicle Allocation Methodology for Agency Fleet, dated August 26, 2005
  • Recent agency survey results of 26 agencies indicated the following: Agencies that have full Fleet MIS = 6 Agencies that have partial Fleet MIS = 8 Agencies that have only property accountability systems = 4 Agencies that have no systems = 4 Non-responding agencies = 4 Without a Fleet MIS, agencies cannot track utilization, costs, or assets use and cannot accurately predict future costs and reply to budget requests Current revision to Federal Management Regulation requires all agencies to have a dedicated Fleet Management Information System that manage the full life cycle of vehicles
  • OMB Circular A-11, requires Exhibit 300s for all capital assets, including motor vehicles and aircraft. Working with OMB, the Interagency Committee for Aviation Policy (ICAP) and the Federal Fleet Council (FedFleet) OGP will publish a Fleet Capital Asset Guide to help agencies complete the Exhibit 300 for motor vehicles and aircraft beginning in FY 2008. OGP will assist its fleet customers in preparing baseline inventory and life cycle costs.
  • Currently 4 (four) Personal Property Sales Centers – GSA, USDA, Treasury, & Justice; we are currently considering adding new sales centers for specialized commodities such as vehicles, aircraft, and localized sales. Real Property Disposal Agencies – All agencies with Real Property Disposal Authority; the 4 (four) listed on the slide are also real property portal sponsors (these four agencies jointly fund the real property of the GovSales portal). GSA (Commercial Buildings and Land); HUD and VA (Houses); and USDA (Farms).
