Compliance with Executive Order 134 - Environmental Impact of Cleaning of Facilities

The Department of Motor Vehicles has 48 facilities statewide. Executive Order 134 required all State agencies to procure and use cleaning products that minimize the potential impacts to human health and the environment. It also required the agencies to conduct an assessment of their programs to promote environmentally safe cleaning and transition to certain conforming products within specified time periods. We found that the Department was not in compliance with the Executive Order. The Department had assigned an individual responsibility for assessing the Departmentís compliance, but the individual had taken no actions to implement the Order, because after consulting with the Office of General Services, Department officials mistakenly believed the Order did not apply to the Department.
