Realty and Asset Management Division 

The Realty and Asset Management Division (RAMD)    provides overall direction, coordination, and supervision for an array of administrative activities required in the operation of the United States Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission (USIBWC), ensuring that such activities are consistent with laws and regulations, Executive Orders, and public policy.

Realty and Asset Management Division supports the United States Section by providing services in the area of personal property administration, fleet management, Headquarters building management, telecommunications, Headquarters supply, logistics, directives, and forms.

Excess Property

RAMD is responsible for acquisition, inventory, reutilization, and disposal of personal property including disposal of excess computer equipment under Executive Order 12999 Educational Technology, management of the agency’s Headquarters building, agency fleet management, and telecommunications.  Schools and qualified nonprofit organizations interested in receiving excess computer equipment as allowed by E.O. 12999 should Email the Property Officer requesting consideration in the agency's Computers for Learning program (CFL). List any special needs your school or organization may have, and the USIBWC will try to provide equipment to meet your requirements. Computer equipment is available on a limited basis, and all letters will be held on file until their request can be fulfilled. Waiting time may extend up to two years, depending upon the turnover of equipment in the agency.

Information on acquiring used assets (other than CFL) for sale to the public can be obtained through General Services Administration.

Fleet Management

As required by Section 142 of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 (Public Law [PL] 110-140), the USIBWC Fleet Management office has a comprehensive strategy to comply with the current regulatory requirements for reducing vehicular petroleum consumption by two percent per year and for increasing alternative fuel (AF) use in vehicles by ten percent compounded annually as compared to the fiscal year 2005 baseline. The vehicular fuel use requirements are mandated in Executive Order (EO) 13514, “Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance” of 2009 and in EO 13423, “Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management” of 2007, as well as the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 1992 (42 USC 13211-13219) as amended by the Energy Conservation Reauthorization Act of 1998 (PL 105-388), the EPAct of 2005 (PL 109-58), the EISA of 2007 (PL 110-140), and the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (PL 110-181). The strategy includes the use of E85, a fuel blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline, instead of conventional gasoline fuel, the use of B20, a fuel blend of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent diesel, in place of conventional diesel fuel where available, increased use of AFs in alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs), improvements in the operating efficiency of USIBWC vehicles, working with other agencies and organizations to improve AF availability, and continued acquisition of light duty or medium duty vehicles with higher fuel economy, to include AFVs such as flex-fuel vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, low greenhouse gas emitting vehicles (LGHGEVs), and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) when they are commercially available and cost feasible versus comparable non-PHEVs.

Section 13218 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992, 42 USC 13218(b), requires each Federal agency to place its annual fleet AFV compliance report on a publicly available website. The USIBWC program falls under the Department of state’s and can be viewed at https://www.state.gov/m/a/c8503.htm

As required by the Presidential Memorandum on Federal Fleet Performance dated 24 May 2011 and GSA Bulletin FMR B-32, the USIBWC current list of executive fleet vehicles (EFVs) is provided below.  This vehicle is used solely by the United States Commissioner
