Topic: Green Procurement
Original Air Date: Wednesday, July 27, 2011
Program Code: 170034
Federal procurement officials are required by the Federal Acquisition Regulation to ensure that 95 percent of new relevant contract actions are for products and services that are energy efficient, water efficient, bio-based, and environmentally preferable or non-ozone depleting - adhering to criteria set out in Executive Order 13514 – as well as other green requirements already in the FAR. Are you a federal contracting officer or contracting specialist trying to determine how this legislation affects you? Agencies are also using procurement to meet their Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) goals. Are you a manager responsible for measuring agency performance against these targets? Or are you in private industry, wondering how these requirements will affect you and your proposals? This webinar will help you make sense of the legislation and understand where the green purchasing movement is heading in the future.
