Additionally, GSA has developed a Comprehensive Professional Energy Services (CPES) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) that helps agencies achieve their energy, greenhouse gas, and water conservation goals using a streamlined acquisition process.
One of the first steps in your procurement is developing your Statement of Work (SOW). In it, you are articulating the needs and requirements of your agency in a concise, focused way. To help you, we turned to industry experts and asked them to provide samples of SOW’s that they felt were among the best. This SOW Library collection will continue to grow as our industry partners provide us with additional examples to share. The FMHAC has over 100 SOW that cover a variety of our energy service offerings listed below. Feel free to contact us to discuss the ones that are best suited for your project.
