SCS Engineers to Assist Federal Government with Sustainable Solutions to Energy Conservation
Reston, VA – SCS Engineers (SCS) recently announced that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) awarded the firm a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to provide comprehensive professional services to increase energy conservation measures by federal government agencies. SCS is one of 19 contractors awarded a BPA by GSA to assist the federal government with sustainable solutions to energy and green building challenges. SCS’s BPA award is part of the federal government’s “Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative” aimed at streamlining internal processes and leveraging buying power. GSA has established the total value of the 19 BPA contracts at approximately $500 million over a five-year contract period.
President Obama issued an executive order on sustainability in October 2009 calling on the federal government to lead by example in greening and modernizing the nation’s infrastructure. To help agencies meet these goals, GSA established the BPA agreements to perform energy audits, energy performance evaluations and energy efficiency implementation, water conservation, and LEED design. These BPA’s can be used by any federal agency to perform these services. “GSA has answered President Obama’s call to create a more sustainable government by giving agencies a powerful tool to meet their greenhouse gas, water conservation, and energy efficiency goals,” said GSA Acting Administrator Stephen R. Leeds.
SCS is pleased to add the BPA to our Energy Practice. In addition to the BPA, SCS provides both Energy and Environmental Advisory Services to Federal Agencies under our GSA Energy Services Schedule and our GSA Environmental Advisory Services Schedule.
