GAS AND ELECTRICITY PROCUREMENT STEPS

hoover dam1) Request for Proposal
We manage the proposal process for both gas and electric procurement for all sites located in regions where deregulation for one or both of those commodities is viable.

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
Upon receipt of proposals, McKenzie & Associates evaluates the offers and recommends in writing the best advantage pricing to the client for approval.

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.

3) Implementation
Once proposals have been received, evaluated and an offer approved by the client, we will process the contract back to the supplier in a timely fashion.

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
As invoices are received by our client, we audit both commodity and transportation charges from the supplier and the transporting utility, respectively.  We verify that pricing from the supplier is being billed as per agreement and from the utility as per filed tariff. 

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.

5) Reporting
We provide quarterly reports on both contract status and savings achieved.  Savings will be calculated based upon the differential between the amount paid by the client and the “bundled” utility's price, if there is one.
