eBuy: How to Increase EPP Purchases at LBNL of Energy

  • Build into contract/purchasing agreement that catalog offers only preferred products?

  • Restrict Purchase Card use to only preferred products, such as we do allowing no firearms purchases

  • Identify preferred products in catalog and give cost incentive (5% off price) for purchasing them?

  • Give awards to star purchasers, making a big splash so all are aware?

Slide8 l.jpg

EPP Data Collection and Reporting at LBNL of Energy

  • Present system for

    • Purchase card?

    • Purchase requests?

    • Service contracts?

    • Construction contracts?

Dear flow down clause for sub contracts l.jpg
DEAR Flow Down Clause of Energy for Sub-Contracts

970.5223-2 Affirmative procurement program.

As prescribed in 48 CFR (DEAR) 970.2304-2, insert the following clause in contracts for the management and operation of DOE facilities, including national laboratories.

AFFIRMATIVE PROCUREMENT PROGRAM (MAR 2003)

(a) In the performance of this contract, the Contractor shall comply with the requirements of Executive Order 13423 and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Affirmative Procurement Program Guidance. This guidance includes requirements concerning environmentally preferable products and services, recycled content products and biobased products. This guidance is available on the Internet.

(c) The Contractor shall prepare and submit reports, at the end of the Federal fiscal year, on matters related to the acquisition of items designated in EPA's Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines that Federal agencies and their Contractors are to procure with recovered/recycled content.

(d) If the Contractor subcontracts a significant portion of the operation of the Government facility which includes the acquisition of items designated in EPA's Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines, the subcontract shall contain a clause substantially the same as this clause. …Examples of such a subcontract would be operation of the facility supply function, construction or remodeling at the facility, or maintenance of the facility motor vehicle fleet.
