Bid Description:
The Vermont Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) Program is part of Vermont's overall strategy to control air pollution from motor vehicles. The Vermont LEV Program is also part of broader regional efforts to reduce air pollution from motor vehicles. Several other northeast states have implemented LEV programs. Combined, these LEV programs bring a significant number of vehicles that emit less air pollution to the northeast. All Vermonters benefit from improved air quality and Vermont motorists realize significant consumer benefits such as longer vehicle useful life requirements, stronger recall provisions, and greater warranty coverage. Inspection and maintenance (IM) of vehicle air pollution control systems is an important and cost-effective air pollution abatement strategy. Inspection requirements for these systems have been successfully integrated into the Vermont Vehicle Inspection Program. Since January 1, 2001 vehicles failing emissions inspections must be repaired prior to receiving a valid inspection sticker. While the Vehicle Inspection Program can identify vehicles with malfunctioning air pollution control systems, it is only through accurate diagnosis and proper repairs that the excess air pollution from these vehicles will be cost effectively reduced. Providing information and training to Vermont automotive technicians on accurately diagnosing and effectively repairing motor vehicles that have failed the inspection is essential to this effort. DEC is seeking proposals for a grant to conduct evaluation of, and outreach for Vermont’s LEV Program, and to develop, offer and deliver training classes to automotive repair technicians throughout the State. Up to $115,000 is available for one (1) eighteen-month (18) period.
