GSA administrator Martha Johnson said small changes can add up to big savings at the annual Coalition for Government Procurement partnership dinner May 11.
She said if GSA increased its average fuel economy of the 60,000 cars it purchases every year, it could save $4 million dollars and 1 million gallons of gas annually.
“Right now agencies face a budget that is far from certain,” Johnson said. She added agencies can help offset smaller budgets by operating more efficiently and by making small but fundamental changes in how they operate, such as buying collectively, increasing fuel economy or reducing space by employing telework.
“More than ever we need a government that works and works well,” Johnson said.
