General Service Administration (Public Building Service): This program will utilize a proven ESPC Team, the General Service Administration’s (GSA) Project Management Office (PMO), to institutionalize the ESPC ENABLE process across the entire organization. GSA is committed to developing $18 million worth of energy savings projects.
Department of Defense (U.S. Air Force): This program has identified organizational barriers experienced with performance contracting in the past, and has developed a plan to overcome them with the newly created Office of Energy Assurance (OEA) to ensure an efficient, effectively ESPC ENABLE process that will be institutionalized within the Air National Guard. Air Force is committed to developing $18 million worth of energy savings projects.
