Greening the Acquisition Planning Process

Green pencil with leafsAcquisition Planning is the time to discuss the potential for the inclusion of green language.  In order to be compliant with Executive Order 13514, contracts must have both applicable green product Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clauses and requirements for green products and services written into the requirements documents (download a table of Green FAR Provisions and Clauses).  While you may not know whether or not a contract has green potential, you can at least start the dialogue with your customer.

Visit the General Services Administration’s Sustainable Facilities Tool website and access the Green Procurement Compilation web-based interactive tool for additional assistance in greening the acquisition planning process.
