John Alley, City of San Diego was named the 2010 Government Fleet Manager of the year by Government Fleet magazine and manages one of the top 20 of The 100 Best Fleets in North America. One of the reasons is that he was able to save the city $11 million dollars in one year. Find out what BPR is and how you can apply the same principles to your operation for substantial improvements immediately.

National Joint Powers Alliance is a new way of doing business for government to fund replacements and eliminate RFPs. But is it cost effective? Two case studies that are pending will be presented by MEMA members on cost comparisons and effectiveness. How you leverage $25,000 into $125,000 for replacements will be discussed as well as the elimination of the RFP process for your major purchases. RFPs cost a minimum of $5000 dollars. Why would you do them anymore?

Sacramento was named #21 in The 100 Best Fleets in North America, setting an example of how California could work with the same enlightened leadership. Keith Leech, Fleet Manager, will present a ROI he uses to justify investments in technology as well as his best fleet practices. The statistician Sacramento used, Jon Tegtmeier from Huntsville, AL will be present to explain this new business model for data driven decisions. Keith was rated one of the top presenters at a recent fleet conference.
