Solicitation Description:

Section 447.004 of the Texas Government Codes requires the State Energy Conservation Office (“SECO”) to establish and publish mandatory energy and water conservation design standards for new state buildings and state-supported institutions of higher education.

In 2011, House Bill 51 of the 82nd Texas Legislature, amended Section 447.004 to apply to the design and construction or renovation of state funded buildings such that the building achieves certification under any high-performance design evaluation system that is approved by SECO and that meets certain requirements. 

Pursuant to the requirements of Section 447.004 of the Texas Government Code, CPA, on behalf of SECO issues this RFI to gather information for establishing a high-performance building evaluation system for state agency building design projects.
