Advanced Utility Energy Service Contract (UESC) Training
Monday and Tuesday, November 5-6, 2018

The U.S. Department of Energy's Federal Energy Management Program is helping agencies improve facility operations, upgrade infrastructure, and save taxpayer dollars by offering training and partnership opportunities with their serving utilities that explore contracting options available including Utility Energy Service Contracts (UESCs). A UESC, ideal for any size project, is a limited-source contract between a federal agency and serving utility for energy management and demand-reduction services. This two-day Advanced UESC Training examines strategies and methods used by experienced contracting officers and their technical teams from project development to contract award and post-acceptance. Attendees will work through exercises designed to develop a project using templates and samples.

This course is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training and there is no registration fee to attend. Continuing education units will be awarded upon successful completion of an online quiz following the workshop. Priority registration will be given to contracting officers, contracting specialists, and other federal employees. Attendees from private industry will be admitted as space allows—one per company.
