    Significance and Use

    5.1 Measuring and managing the effectiveness of a motorized equipment program will result in improved accountability and enhanced operational performance. Accountability will be evident through standard performance measures, such as cost savings, increased asset visibility and utilization, extended asset life, petroleum and greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions, and increased mission effectiveness.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide addresses considerations for effectively managing fleets of motorized mobile equipment assets.

    1.2 This guide primarily addresses nontactical motorized equipment but may also include other commodity groups such as aircraft and waterborne vessels.

    1.3 This guide does not override requirements specific to governmental authorities. However, to the greatest extent practicable, entities should consider the guidance in this standard where the opportunity to realize efficiencies is evident.
