For the Alt-Fuel subsection of this procurement, NJPA has awarded Northside Ford/Gresham Ford, CODA, Smith Electric, and Mitsubishi.

The NAF response demonstrated a very innovative Web-based ordering system featuring pricing and selection of vehicle options format, which allows the company to offer more than 1,200 models of cars and trucks, each with an extensive offering of factory and dealer applied options. National Auto Fleet Group, a subsidiary of a franchised new car dealer, demonstrated the ability to sell and service members in all 50 states for the manufacturers including but not limited to, Ford, Chevrolet, Nissan, and Toyota.
