All dates & times in Pacific Time


The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) is a voluntary association of governments. Member jurisdictions include: the County of Sacramento (including the cities of Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Isleton, Rancho Cordova, and Sacramento); the County of Yolo (including the cities of Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, and Woodland); the County of Sutter (including the cities of Live Oak and Yuba City); the County of Yuba (including the cities of Marysville and Wheatland); Placer County (including the cities of Auburn, Colfax, Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville, and Town of Loomis) and El Dorado County (including the City of Placerville).

SACOG is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Sacramento, Davis, and Marysville / Yuba City urbanized areas. SACOG is also the state-designated Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) for the counties of Sacramento, Yolo, Sutter, and Yuba.

1. Summary

SACOG seeks to implement a solution for city and county fuel storage management to include tracking uses of the same tool, one that was created nearly three decades ago. Through this contract our agency seeks to modernize tank management, monitoring, and information processing. The service's cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) emphasis offers the opportunity to reduce cost and provide a modern solution to a process that has generally been managed through legacy methods (if at all). While SACOG manages a regional fuel contract representing cities, counties, and special districts throughout the Sacramento region, our goal with this contract is to open the door to ways to better manage fuel storage and usage.

2. Background

SACOG’s Joint Fuel and Lubricants Contract, up for renewal this year, has enabled cost-saving, efficient access to common fuels, renewable diesel, and cardlock fueling to meet agency needs. Conversations with member governments and other agencies have shown considerable interest for additional services to supplement our regional fuel contract. Exhibit B displays the Participating Agencies, number of fueling locations (101), and bulk storage tanks (108).

SACOG shall be the lead agency for an eventual master agreement available to local governments throughout California on an on-demand or as-needed basis requiring no formal commitment from participating agencies.

Participating Agencies will purchase directly from the selected vendor under a SACOG-established master agreement by using the sub-agreement process. Participating Agencies will be directly billed by the selected vendors for any purchase made under the agreement.
