Today's award is the result of months of effort by the CxGBS team to meet the exacting requirements of the GSA
Duluth, Georgia (PRWEB) February 15, 2011 -
Commissioning & Green Building Solutions, Inc. (CxGBS®) announced today that the General Services Administration (GSA) has approved the company as a Schedule Holder for its Federal Acquisition Service. Inclusion in the GSA's Federal Supply Schedule is an indicator that CxGBS has passed the most rigorous scrutiny for excellence and quality in its industry. As America's only dedicated, governmental procurement source for goods and services, the GSA manages billions of dollars in government procurement contracts and purchases annually.
The GSA has awarded CxGBS Contract #GS-21F-0069X in three procurement categories:
-- Energy Management Planning and Strategies (SIN 871 202)
-- Building Commissioning Services (SIN 871 206)
-- Energy Audit Services (SIN 871 207)
"Today's award is the result of months of effort by the CxGBS team to meet the exacting requirements of the GSA," says H. Jay Enck, CxAP, HBDP, CPMP, and Principal of CxGBS. "The result was well worth the effort, as it enables us to bring CxGBS' unique combination of green-building commissioning expertise and pinpoint focus on quality to a broad array of governmental agencies. We look forward to working with federal entities as the U.S. government accelerates its adoption of green initiatives across the board."
A component of the approval is the inclusion of CxGBS and its price lists on GSA Advantage! (http://www.gsa.gov/advantage), the GSA's online shopping and ordering system. Designed so that federal government employees can shop and make purchases easily, GSA Advantage! provides access to thousands of contractors and millions of supplies (products) and services.
This award comes on the heels of an Energy Efficient Schools Initiative (EESI) contract award for CxGBS to provide technical assistance on geothermal projects for five Tennessee schools. It further cements CxGBS' reputation as being at the forefront of emerging green technologies and commissioning practices.
