Document provides guidance on U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) energy savings performance contract (ESPC) project development for:

  • Allocating operations and maintenance (O&M) and repair and replacement (R&R) responsibilities
  • Putting in place O&M reporting requirements.

The goal is to minimize disagreements between federal agencies and energy service companies over O&M and R&R and to help ensure that savings persist during performance period. Verification of cost savings from O&M changes resulting from ESPCs is not within the scope of this document.
