Meeting Date:           June 11, 2012

 

From:                          Mike Thornton, Purchasing Manager, for

                                    Paul Kalv, Electric Utility Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of Task Order No. 3 with KEMA, Inc. for professional services in support of the Department of Energy (DOE) grant reporting.

 

 


Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of Task Order No. 3 for professional services in support of reporting for the DOE grant to KEMA, Inc. for an amount not to exceed $70,000.00.

 

Analysis:

The DOE grant contract award requires the City to have a Metrics and Benefits Reporting Plan (MBRP).  The City has created this document.  The document describes a Metrics and Benefits Reporting Plan (MBRP) that Leesburg staff will use to:

 

Now that the project is in full implementation, it is time to identify and begin gathering a set of baseline information that will be used to communicate the metrics of the project to the DOE.

 

KEMA, Inc., as the technology coach, is qualified to perform these services.  Task Order No. 3 under the master agreement will authorize KEMA to perform these services with the City.  KEMA will create the baseline metrics and data.  City staff will then continue reporting on these metrics to the DOE as the project continues forward.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution authorizing execution of  Task Order No. 3 with KEMA, Inc.; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact:

This is a necessary expense to allow the Electric department to meet DOE reporting requirements.  Funds for these services will be covered by the Electric operating budget.  This is an eligible expense under the DOE grant but was not specifically identified in the Smartgrid plan.  If funds are available at the close of the project this expense could be sent to DOE for reimbursement.
