B. In addition to providing services to state agencies and institutions, fleet management services may also be provided to local public bodies on a fee for service basis in accordance with established Department of General Services Fleet Management policies and procedures.

C. The Department of General Services shall advance the consolidation of bulk and commercial fuel purchases into a single procurement action as recommended in the Vehicle Fleet Operational Review conducted in 2007.  The intent of this consolidation will be to leverage the Commonwealth's state and local public entities, gasoline and diesel fuel purchase volume into a single procurement action to achieve the most favored pricing from private sector fuel providers. 

D. The Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of General Services may enter into a comprehensive agreement, or multiple comprehensive agreements, pursuant to the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act - 2002 (§ 56-575.1 et seq.), to achieve the purposes of § 2.2-1176(B) and result in the replacement of state-owned or operated vehicles with vehicles that operate on alternative fuels. Any agreement entered into must be cost neutral or result in a reduction in the Commonwealth's combined vehicle acquisition and operational costs, and result in lower environmental emissions. The agreements shall not be subject to the requirements found in Title 30, Chapter 42, Code of Virginia (§ 30-278 et. seq.). The Director, Department of General Services, in consultation with the Governor's Senior Advisor on Energy and the Secretary of Finance, shall determine whether the agreement is cost neutral or results in cost savings to the Commonwealth.
