    5         Section 2. Centralized fleet management plan.—
    6         (1) The Department of Management Services shall prepare a
    7  plan regarding the creation, administration, and maintenance of
    8  a centralized fleet of state-owned motor vehicles. By December
    9  1, 2018, the department shall submit the plan to the Governor,
   10  the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of
   11  Representatives.
   12         (2) The plan for centralizing all state-owned motor
   13  vehicles must provide a method for:
   14         (a) Using break-even mileage in the assignment and
   15  administration of motor vehicles to state agencies and employees
   16  to determine when it becomes cost effective for the state to
   17  assign motor vehicles to employees.
   18         (b) Managing a fleet of motor vehicles for short-term use
   19  and shared-use motor vehicle pools.
   20         (c) Developing a motor vehicle replacement plan and budget,
   21  which must take into account operating and maintenance costs of
   22  the centralized fleet.
   23         (d) Purchasing motor vehicles necessary for the operation
   24  of the centralized fleet.
   25         (e) Repairing and maintaining motor vehicles.
   26         (f) Monitoring the use of motor vehicles and enforcing
   27  regulations regarding proper use.
   28         (g) Maintaining records related to the operation and
   29  maintenance of motor vehicles and the administration of the
   30  centralized fleet.
   31         (h) Disposing of motor vehicles that are no longer needed
   32  or the use of which is not cost effective.
   33         (i) Monitoring and managing motor vehicle disposal outcomes
   34  to determine the most cost-efficient method for disposal of
   35  fleet vehicles.
   36         (j) Implementing a fuel management program and a
   37  standardized methodology for reporting fuel data.
   38         (k) Determining when it would be cost-efficient to lease a
   39  motor vehicle from a third-party vendor instead of using a
   40  state-owned motor vehicle.
   41         (l) Determining when it would be cost-efficient to use
   42  alternative fuel vehicles, electric vehicles, or extended-range
   43  electric vehicles or to lease or purchase such vehicles for
   44  fleet use.
   45         (m) Equipping fleet motor vehicles with real-time
   46  locational monitoring systems.
   47         (3) In developing the plan, the department shall evaluate
   48  the costs and benefits of operating and maintaining a
   49  centralized motor vehicle fleet compared to the costs and
   50  benefits of contracting with a third-party vendor for the
   51  operation and maintenance of a centralized motor vehicle fleet.
