2015 Performance Contract Audit Assistance Program (PCAAP)
We are now accepting applications for projects that follow-through with a performance contracting project. Eligible Nevada government entities include counties, cities, school districts, state colleges, state universities and state agencies. Visit GOE's Performance Contracting Programs page to learn more.
The State Public Works Division pre-qualified ESCOs to participate in state agency projects. Local governments may use this list to request proposals from ESCOs.
**ESCOs can still apply for pre-qualification through November 13, 2015**
Longer Financing Term for Local Governments
The State Legislature recently extended the financing term of a performance contract for local governments from 15 years to 25 years. The change will be effective October 1 (NRS 332.380).
Pre-Qualified 3rd Party Performance Contracting Consultants
Statutes for both state and local governments require a 3rd party consultant to provide independent review of ESCO recommendations. The consultant can also serve as a performance contracting expert to help negotiate and implement a successful project. The State Purchasing Division pre-qualified 3rd Party Consultants for state agencies. Local governments may use these consultants via the state's master service agreements.
The Nevada Chapter of the Energy Services Coalition is a public/private partnership of performance contracting advocates and providers, offering additional educational support. The chapter holds meetings regularly. Join now to help in a coordinated effort to increase awareness of performance contracting in Nevada's state and local governments.
