CDFW, which is part of the California Natural Resources Agency, is charged with managing and protecting the state’s wildlife, wildflowers, trees, mushrooms, algae and native habitats. It was formerly known as the Department of Fish and Game.

According to the Department of General Services' State Contracting and Procurement Registration System, CDFW spent $3,612,712 from Jan. 1 through March 31 on the following (all numbers are rounded):
  • $2,481,242 with Integrated Surveillance for monitoring equipment, in a Feb. 22 informal competitive contract
  • $561,663 for monthly service charges for fleet management in a March 26 statewide contract with Geotab USA Inc.
