Federal Vehicle Standards

You can find classifications for various types of sizes of commercially available vehicles, as well as minimum technical, quality, and optional equipment specifications, in GSA's Federal Vehicle Standards. We use these standards to ensure the vehicles we purchase are safe, durable, and economical, and to provide uniformity in the acquisition process.

GSA develops the Federal Vehicle Standards for current model year vehicles and publishes them annually. As part of the development, coordination, and maintenance of these standards, we post them publicly for comments for approximately 45 days during certain parts of the year.

The standards, and information about the period for comments are posted on the Federal Vehicle Standards website. Signup email notification.
