The Government Fleet Management Alliance (GFMA) and the Coalition for Green Fleet Management recognized five fleets at the Government Fleet Expo and Conference (GFX) for their completion of the Certified Fleet Management Operation (CFMO) program, CLEANFleet program, and the Fleet Masters operation award.

San Bernardino County, Calif., renewed its CFMO certification, achieved CLEANFleet status, and earned a Fleet Masters award.

Four other fleets earned CLEANFleet certifications and the Fleet Masters operation award: the City of Dublin, Ohio; City of Anaheim, Calif.; City of Boise, Idaho; and City of Tulsa, Okla.

Jim Wright, president and CEO of Fleet Counselor Services and associate director of the GFMA, presented the awards.

The CFMO certification benchmarks fleet practices against private-sector companies with which the public-sector group competes most directly. The certification testing process addresses 20 categories and eight foundation categories to ensure fleet management success and aims to make a fleet operation cost-effective, efficient, competitive, and well-managed. The CLEANFleet certification ensures fleet operations are energy efficient and environmentally responsible. To earn the Fleet Masters operation certification, fleets must have both certifications.
