Travel Modernization Office – Green Vehicle Rental Standing Offer

In summer 2004, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Environment Canada met with Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and Treasury Board Secretariat to add environmental criteria for the 2005 Standing Offer for Rental Vehicles. Because the time frame to change the evaluation process for the bids was limited, NRCan and Environment Canada decided to use the Travel Modernization Office to promote environmentally responsible vehicle rental by federal employees.

Due to this promotion, hybrid vehicles bids, such as for the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight, were included in the 2005 Rental Standing Offer.
