GSA goes green with new MAS vehicle

The General Services Administration announced yesterday it has created a new Multiple Award Schedule contract vehicle to provide energy-management support services for agencies. The vehicle seeks to help agencies comply with a presidential executive order to strengthen environmental, energy and transportation conservation goals, the agency said.

Executive Order 13423, which President Bush signed last year, sets goals for agencies in energy efficiency, renewable energy, recycling, sustainable buildings, electronics stewardship and water conservation. The order also requires that agencies use environmental management systems as the framework for managing and continually improving those sustainable practices.

"EO 13423 was a tremendous step toward environmental responsibility governmentwide," said Tyree Varnado, acting commissioner of GSA's Federal Acquisition Service. "At GSA, we continue to strive to make it easier for all government agencies to comply."

GSA's affiliated contractors can provide the services and expertise agencies need to develop energy management in government buildings, ranging from preliminary energy audits to comprehensive, full-service energy-management solutions, Varnado said.
