In February this year, the Federal Vehicle Repair Costing Saving Act of 2014 was introduced to US Congress. If passed, the bill would require the head of each Federal agency to encourage the use of remanufactured vehicle components to maintain Federal vehicles, if using such components reduces the cost while maintaining quality. The bill, introduced by two members of the House of Representatives, is motivated by the findings that federal agencies spent approximately $975 million on repair and maintenance of the 588,000 vehicles in the civilian Federal fleet in 2011. Using remanufactured vehicle components could therefore be an effective strategy for reducing costs while reducing environmental impacts. For the full legislation, please see the external weblink:
