Welcome to the Federal Vehicle Standards Website! The Federal Vehicle Standards classifies various types and sizes of commercially available vehicles, and establishes minimum technical, quality, and optional equipment specifications. The standards ensure vehicles purchased by GSA are safe, durable, and economical, and provide uniformity in the acquisition process. These standards are developed by GSA and are published annually to cover current model year vehicles. The Federal Vehicle Standards are posted for comments from interested parties for approximately 30 days during certain parts of the year as part of the annual development, coordination, and maintenance of the standards. We want to hear your feedback regarding these vehicles! NOTE! Please watch this page for notifications regarding comment period times and the applicable standards.
