The purpose of this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) is to solicit special pricing agreements (SPAs) for a market basket of energy efficient building materials and equipment (“Goods”) from manufacturers and distributors (“Suppliers”) for use by contractors (“Contractors”) performing work for low- and moderate-income (LMI) energy efficiency programs. As part of the Volume Purchase Program (VPP), the Philadelphia Energy Authority (“PEA”) is seeking SPAs for heating equipment and windows. Respondents may supply proposals for either or both of these product categories. PEA encourages the participation of minority-, woman-, and disabled-owned business enterprises (M/W/DBEs).
PEA’s VPP will leverage SPAs with participating Supplier(s) to yield meaningful price reductions for Goods. These reduced prices will make it possible for participating LMI program administrators (“Administrators”) to specify higher quality, more energy efficient measures in building retrofits, leading to lower energy costs and improved quality of life for Philadelphia households.
Administrators will directly procure Goods from selected Supplier(s) on an as-needed basis at prices established in the SPAs. Selected Supplier(s) may not act as Contractors for these programs and may not provide ongoing service contracts for these programs.
Response Deadline: April 27, 2018, 5:00pm EST
