The Transportation Services Division was officially established in 1994 as its own entity. The Governor’s executive order issued in 1994 called for the complete centralization of vehicles to occur amongst state agencies. However, this centralization of vehicles did not occur until FY 2002.
Transportation Services Division consists of three separate organizational entities:
1. The State Centralized Fleet Authority (often referred to as the State Motor Pool) is responsible for the State’s Vehicle Fleet Operations. Services that are provided by the Central Fleet Authority Bureau are: short-term leasing, long-term leasing, third-party commercial leasing, vehicle maintenance and state-wide fuel card use. This bureau is also responsible for purchasing and disposing of state vehicles, establishing vehicle and driver standards. All revenue earned is from monthly vehicle leases. CFAB has three locations for customer convienance; 1) Motor Pool administrative staff and the Santa Fe short- term leasing office is located at 2542 Cerrillos Road; 2) the Albuquerque short term leasing office is located at 3401 Pan American freeway; 3) the Santa Fe Quik Ride short term leasing operation is located at South Capitol Complex and 4) the Maintenance Garageis located at 26001/2 Cerrillos Road.
2. The State Aviation Services Bureau is responsible for providing mission critical services for public entities. Aviation Services Bureau was recognized under the “State Aircraft Act” enacted in the Laws of 1994 where all state aircraft were to be consolidated within one department. The intent was that these aircraft would be for the use of all state agencies, departments, branches and institutions. The Aviation Services Bureau is locate at the Santa Fe airport and is currently leasing both office and hangar space. The aircraft fleet consists of two aircraft, a King Air and a Turbo Commander.
3. State Agency for Surplus Property (SASP) has been in existence since 1947. In March of 2000, the GSD Cabinet Secretary moved the SASP under the direction of the Transportation Services Division. It does not receive a penny of General Fund appropriation. It survives on the service charges the customer pays for the property they acquire. The agency currently has in excess of six hundred active customers. Previously, the SASP survived with its Federal Donation Program. The SASP recycles useable property in the most efficient manner possible and currently opens its warehouse to the general public for the sale of reusable state property. The SASP is physically located at 1990 Siringo Rd. where both its office and warehouse operations occur.
