Assess potential for consolidating similar ECMs among different Awardees for procurement and construction. Design and Review group will review agencies ECM scope of work prior to solicitation. Design and Review Group will work in conjunction with GEFA to assist agencies in developing an M&V Plan for each ECM prior to solicitation.
GSFIC Procurement Process l l l Design professionals/vendors/service providers will be procured according to established GSFIC procedures. Agencies will be consulted for suggested professionals. Typically all solicitations will be competitive
GSFIC Procurement Process l l l All open solicitations will be posted to the Georgia Procurement Registry (GPR). Bid Package will include the process for bid, selection, award and contracting The corresponding contract will be attached to the bid package
GSFIC Procurement Process The bid period will generally be 30 consecutive calendar days unless otherwise allowed l A pre-bid conference may be held depending on complexity l Changes will be managed by addenda l
ARRA Requirements for all Projects l l l Buy American DUNS CCR Copeland Act Davis Bacon Subcontracts l l Neutrality-Open Competition IG/DOE Audits Field Audits Reporting Requirements
Buy American Provisions (Section 1605 - ARRA) l Recipients may not use any funds obligated under this award for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public building or public work unless all of the iron, steel, and manufactured goods used in the project are produced in the United States unless the Agency waives the application of this provision.
Buy American Provisions (Exceptions) l ARRA provisions shall not apply when: – applying 1605 would be inconsistent with the public interest; – iron, steel, and the relevant manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality; or – inclusion of iron, steel, and manufactured goods produced in the United States will increase the cost of the overall project by more than 25 percent.
Dun & Bradstreet l l A Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number (www. dnb. com) is one of the requirements for registration in the Central Contractor Registration. If applicable, the Contractor agrees to separately identify to each subcontractor and document at the time of award of contract or approval of application and at the time of disbursement of funds, the Federal award number, CFDA number, and amount of ARRA funds.
Central Contractor Registration l Contractor must maintain current registrations in the Central Contractor Registration (www. ccr. gov) at all times during which they have active federal awards funded with ARRA funds.
Copeland “Anti-Kickback” Act l Prohibits federal contractors or subcontractors engaged in building construction or repair from inducing an employee to give up any part of the compensation to which he or she is entitled under his or her employment contract and requires such contractors and subcontractors to submit weekly statements of compliance.
Copeland “Anti-Kickback” Act (Wage Reporting) l l For contracts in excess of $2, 000. Each covered contractor and subcontractor must provide the federal agency contracting officer with a weekly statement of wages paid to each of its laborers and mechanics during the preceding weekly payroll period. Each payroll submitted shall be accompanied by a “Statement of Compliance. ” Form WH-347 "Payroll (For Contractors Optional Use)"(http: //www. dol. gov/whd/forms/wh 347 instr. htm) or on any form with identical wording. This must be submitted within seven days after the regular pay date for the pay period.
Davis-Bacon Wage Act l l l Contractor and all subcontractors shall pay all mechanics and laborers employed directly upon the site of the work, the full amounts accrued at time of payment, computed at wage rates not less than those stated in the advertised specifications. The scale of wages to be paid shall be posted by the Contractor in a prominent and easily accessible place at the site of the work. In the event it is found that any laborer or mechanic employed by the Contractor/subcontractor is being paid a rate of wages less than the rate of wages required, the Owner may terminate his right to proceed with the work and the Contractor and his sureties shall be liable for any excess costs occasioned thereby.
Subcontracting l Contractors will separately identify each subcontractor and document at the time of sub award and at the time of disbursement of funds, the Federal award number, Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number, and amount of ARRA Funds.
Subcontracting l l l GSFIC will require vendors to include on their Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA) information to specifically identify ARRA funding. GEFA will properly monitor subcontractor expenditure of ARRA funds. GEFA is accountable to the Federal Offices of Inspector General and the Government Accountability Office
ARRA Requirements l Neutrality – Transparency Act eliminates any bias towards pre-existing relationships. – l All contracts/sub-contracts must be competitively bid. IG/DOE/Field Audits – Vendors must be prepared for audits under these contracts

Measurement and Verification l l l Each project or energy conservation measure awarded will need to include approved form of measurement and verification of energy savings Agencies/Institutions will decide whether to procure or self-perform M&V International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) 2007
Measurement and Verification Energy Savings = (Baseline Energy Use) – (Post-Retrofit Energy Use) + /– (Adjustments) Baseline Energy Use = (Baseline System Performance) x (Baseline Operating Hours) Post-Retrofit Energy Use = (Post-Retrofit System Performance) x (Post-Retrofit Operating Hours)
Measurement and Verification Performance = efficiency or rate of energy use of system/equipment Operating Hours = the total time that a system/piece of equipment runs
Measurement and Verification
Measurement and Verification Simple Lighting Example: Retrofit 100 T-12 fixtures (3 lamp 40 W) with 28 W T-8 lamps and electronic ballasts; assume 3000 hrs/yr Baseline Energy Use = (Baseline System Performance) x (Baseline Operating Hours) = (140 W x 100 fixtures) x (3000 hrs/yr) = 42, 000 k. Wh/year
Measurement and Verification Post-Retrofit Energy Use = (Post-Retrofit System Performance) x (Post-Retrofit Operating Hours) = (72 W x 100 fixtures) x (3000 hrs/yr) = 21, 600 k. Wh/year Energy Savings = (Baseline Energy Use) – (Post-Retrofit Energy Use) + /– (Adjustments) = (42, 000 k. Wh/yr) – (21, 600 k. Wh/yr) = 20, 400 k. Wh/year
Measurement and Verification l l Option A—Retrofit Isolation with Key Parameter Measurement Option B—Retrofit Isolation with All Parameter Measurement Option C – Whole Bldg Utility Data Analysis Option D—Calibrated Computer Simulation
Measurement and Verification l Recommendations: – – – ECMs with projected annual savings < $10, 000/yr can use engineering calculations instead of an official IPMVP method. Lighting projects typically Option A, perhaps B Medium and large controls (excl. metering) & mechanical projects within a single building or central plant: Option B (where practicable) Metering, Commissioning, Building Envelope, and Multibuilding Controls projects: Option C (10% rule) Other?
