NASA Official Fleet Management Handbook


Contracting Officer (CO)

It is NASA’s policy to discontinue the provision of Government-owned or leased vehicles to contractors unless it is most advantageous to NASA. The removal of Government vehicles from contractors shall take place over time when contracts are renewed, re-bid, or extended. In certain rare cases, contractors will be authorized to use Government-owned or leased vehicles only after the CO has provided written authorization to the NASA Agency Transportation Manager and the GSA Fleet Management Center (FMC). Contractors will not coordinate directly with the GSA FMC to obtain the authorization. This authorization will comply with requirements outlined in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 51.202.
