Retail Choice Utility Contracts

We have authority under 40 U.S.C. 501 and FAR Part 41 to procure utility services for federal agencies in all energy markets.

In deregulated energy supply markets, we help federal agencies and non-governmental organizations obtain energy supply for their facilities nationwide. By aggregating energy demand across multiple agencies, we are able to leverage federal buying power.

By including carbon pollution-free electricity in our solicitations, we help your agency reach the Federal Government’s goal of 100 percent by 2030 per Executive Order 14057.

Our process

Our team of utility experts:

  • Work with customers to validate and or develop their requirements to create a Request for Proposal (RFP).
  • Recommend strategies that align with your agency’s requirements and goals.
  • Advertise the RFP(s) to qualifying suppliers and vet technical proposals.
  • Run a reverse auction and select a pricing product.
  • Award the contract for agencies and non-governmental organizations to place delivery orders against.
  • Administer energy supply procurements.
