Burns Supports Federal Government’s Zero-Emission Fleet Transition
The federal government is undertaking the largest investment in electric vehicle charging infrastructure in U.S. history.
President Joe Biden’s Executive Order 14057 requires federal agencies purchase 100 percent zero-emission light duty vehicles by 2027, eventually limiting all vehicle procurement to only zero-emission models by 2035. Federal agencies and the U.S. Postal Service together operate nearly half million vehicles.
Burns will contribute our fleet electrification design capabilities to a small business joint venture led by Silver Mountain Construction and Weston Solutions. The team was recently awarded multiple General Services Administration (GSA) government-wide design/build and construction indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts, established to facilitate installation of Electric Vehicle System Equipment (EVSE) and related infrastructure improvements.
The joint venture’s IDIQ contracts support 9 of 11 GSA regions across the country.
