State Fleet Fueling Issues

State Fuel Card Services Contract

The CCG re-bid and awarded a contract for retail fueling and other vehicle related expenses. The card is a Voyager Card and can be used at any location that accepts the Voyager Card. The CCG executed the contract with US Bank on April 20, 2012.

The contract term runs through April 30, 2014 with 3 one-year renewal options. The State Office of Vehicle Fleet Management serves as the contract administrator.

Alternative Fuel Program

Government Code, Chapter 2158 requires state agencies, with fleets larger than 15 vehicles, to purchase alternative fuel capable vehicles and maintain at least 50 percent of its fleet on alternative fuels. OVFM is empowered to grant waivers to these requirements based on the conditions below:

  • B1 Waiver: Agency vehicles will be operating in an area where neither the agency nor a supplier can establish adequate refueling.
  • B2 Waiver: Agency is unable to obtain equipment to operate alternative fuel vehicles at no greater cost than the continued use of conventional fuels.
  • B3 Waiver: Agency is unable to obtain equipment necessary to operate alternative fuel vehicles.

To apply for an alternative fuel waiver complete the appropriate form and return a signed copy, by mail or fax, to OVFM. The forms open in excel spreadsheets; spreadsheet fields colored in yellow are required, while fields in green should be completed as applicable to the specific request. Additional supporting documentation can be provided with the forms. Please contact OVFM with any questions regarding this process.

Required Plug-ins

In 2015, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 855, which requires state agencies to publish a list of the three most commonly used Web browsers on their websites. The Texas Comptroller’s most commonly used Web browsers are Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Apple Safari.
