GAS AND ELECTRICITY PROCUREMENT STEPS
1) Request for Proposal
We evaluate and identify available suppliers to determine those which are viable, stable, and that have expertise in the marketplace. Once identified, requests are sent to a minimum of 2 qualified suppliers (provided 2 suppliers are available), and to the local utility (if the utility offers a supply plan), in order to determine the best available price for supply.
2) Evaluation and recommendation
Contracts for all sites within any given region or state can either be negotiated so that renewal dates are uniform, or in a staggered fashion if desired by the client for hedging purposes.
Proper follow-up will be conducted to ensure that documents are in place by start date and the vendor is following the necessary timetable for timely implementation.
We will coordinate any required billing info with the client’s “bill pay” partner.
4) Ongoing administration and auditing
Pricing discrepancies are addressed with the supplier and managed to resolution. All recoveries and reimbursement from the vendor will be returned to the client.
We monitor contract status to effect timely renewal and possibly take advantage of favorable market pricing.
