All applicable campus owned vehicles are equipped with such technology. In addition, any newly purchased vehicles are equipped by manufacturer prior to delivery. Lastly, all outside contractors are required to comply with said requirements. Reports are submitted to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's Bureau of Mobile Sources and Technology Development.
