Energy Performance Contracts

State Department and Institutions of Higher Education shall use the following documents for an Investment Grade Audit Report and Energy Performance Contract Project Proposal Contract (IGA) and Energy Performance Contract (EPC). Local jurisdictions have their own requirements and should use the boilerplate documents from the CEO website (opens in new window).

All State Departments and Institutions of Higher Education shall submit to OSA for review the IGA and EPC prior to acceptance and signature. State Departments or Institutions of Higher Education who desire to modify the documents shall follow OSA contract modification guidelines and then provide the edits to OSA for review. Modification of such agreements shall be limited to modifications historically permitted by the State Buildings Program regarding project description, scope of work, payment provisions, etc., and does not include modification of standard "boilerplate" language in the contract. 


Review the public projects policy for EPC requirements relating to: Colorado Labor, Contract Performance outside the United States or Colorado*, Use of Foreign-produced goods*, Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business*, Apprenticeship Utilization Requirements, and Prevailing Wage on Public Projects.

*Does not apply to projects for Institutions of Higher Education that have opted out of the State Procurement Code.
