Performance Metrics 


Cost Per Mile (cpm)

This is a report on NASA-owned and GSA leased vehicles showing the total annual aggregated maintenance cost (excluding accident costs) for each vehicle divided by the total annual miles. This report, generated from the FAST data base, required annually at the end of the fiscal year, should show each individual vehicle cpm as well as an average cpm for each of the following vehicle types:

  • Sedans and Station Wagons
  • Ambulances
  • Buses
  • LD Trucks 4x2
  • LD Trucks 4x4
  • MD Trucks
  • HD Trucks

Budgeted Lease Vehicle Cost vs. Actual

This is a report that shows the total budgeted amount for GSA vehicle leases at each Center compared to the total actual cost for GSA vehicle leases. The report also applies to contractor BOAC’s. This report shall be compiled annually in order to track cost variations.

Accident Costs

This report will show the total annual cost of accident and abuse repairs for two major groups of vehicles: GSA leased units and NASA-owned units. For GSA leased units, the accident cost rate will also be aggregated and reported as “cost per million miles driven”.
