Automated Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST) data collection and reporting is now available to all federal agencies as part of the Agile Fleet web-based fleet management system, FleetCommander. This capability, implemented and used by 13 regions across the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for FY-2018, transmits vehicle level data (VLD) used by the General Services Administration (GSA), Department of Energy (DOE), and the Energy Information Administration in accordance with federal vehicle fleet reporting requirements. The solution automates time-intensive processes required by federal agencies to collect mileage, maintenance activities and costs, vehicle use and lease, or purchase cost data for vehicles subject to FAST reporting. The announcement was made by the tool’s creator, Agile Fleet.
The FAST Reporting capability was developed with guidance from the EPA. EPA currently uses FleetCommander for reporting across all regions and EPA headquarters. EPA also uses the Agile Fleet’s fleet management information system (FMIS) to manage and automatically share vehicles via self-service kiosks, track and collect vehicle and user data, communicate and enforce policies, and adjust fleet size and composition based on data.
“Our client EPA presented their challenge of manually collecting and reporting FAST reporting data on disparate spreadsheets and databases. We worked closely with them to develop a solution that totally automates the way they handle FAST reporting, easing the time-consuming task associated with the reporting requirement,” said Ed Smith, Agile Fleet president and CEO. “We are thrilled with their rapid success and look forward to sharing this capability with other federal agencies faced with the same challenge.”
