Clients participating in this program will sign an Interagency Agreement (IAA) with the DES Energy Program. This allows the client to select an ESCO from the Master Contract directly without the traditional RFP/RFQ and bid process, and allows DES and the ESCO to evaluate the client's facilities for energy efficiency opportunities. The DES Energy Program assigns and energy engineer to assist the client throughout the process.
