Energy efficiency improvements to public buildings can have a big impact on state and local government budgets and the environment. Making necessary upgrades can decrease public sector energy consumption, thereby driving down costs and ultimately having positive long-term impacts on the environment. For the public sector, the decision to make these improvements is often eased by state and local government policies that provide incentives to accelerate upgrades and renovations.

While facility managers and state and local government professionals recognize the benefits of energy efficiency retrofits, the procurement process can often slow the pace of making these changes.

That’s where alternative construction and procurement processes can help make sure the work is completed more quickly, with the same staff levels and without detracting resources.

Join Governing for this important webinar as we discuss ways public works and procurement professionals have worked together to accomplish energy efficiency upgrades to public buildings through business process improvements in the procurement process.
