Unique Challenges in Government Fleet Management

Thursday, March 8, 9:30–10:45 a.m.

Government fleets face challenges in funding, public perception and managing the diversity of their fleets. They operate under different performance standards and financial characteristics while meeting expectations of elected officials and associated politics. During this session, a New York City fleet representative will discuss real-world issues of operating a complex fleet in one of America’s most populated cities. In addition, the Palm Beach County director of fleet management will highlight differences in a mid-sized city and operational impacts in an area of the country that demands significant emergency response preparedness.

Presented by: Sara Burnam, Director, Fleet Management, Palm Beach County; and Robert Martinez, Deputy Commissioner, NYPD
