The OSA policy, High Performance Certification Program (HPCP), was revised July 2018. Please call Rod Vanderwall, Manager of Energy Programs for any questions with state owned building HPCP requirements. Call the CDE or DOLA program managers for questions on projects funded their those departments.
The updated HPCP policy requires the most current and applicable sustainable guideline. (see main Energy Management page for policy)
The Policy outlines the requirements for state departments and institutions of higher education in the construction of new buildings and the substantial renovation of existing buildings. The policy recognizes the US Green building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) guideline, the Green Building Initiative (GBI), Green Globes guideline, and for K-12 school, the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (US-version of CHPS) guideline. The OSA HPCP registration forms, are modified for either a State Agency, DOLA, or CDE project and include example guideline checklists.
