Comprehensive Utility Energy Service Contracts Training
Tuesday, November 5, 2019, to Wednesday, November 6, 2019
FEMP is helping agencies meet their mandated energy savings goals by offering training and partnership opportunities with their serving utilities that explore contracting options available including utility energy service contracts (UESCs). A UESC, used for small and large projects, is a limited-source contract between a federal agency and serving utility for energy management and demand-reduction services. This two-day comprehensive 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. CEUs will be awarded upon successful completion of an online quiz and evaluation 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.
Register for this training.
