This 3.5-hour training course is a condensed version of the ESPC comprehensive course that is typically provided over a period of three days. The 3.5-hour course is often presented as a prerequisite course to other ESPC training, but also can stand-alone. Training sections cover a high-level understanding of what an ESPC is and how it is used to accomplish energy improvements, task order ordering procedures, contractor selection, risk and responsibility, measurement and verification, applicable financial schedules, pricing and financing aspects of the project, and post award contract administration including FEMP's Life of Contract services. This on demand training is organized into four modules that present an overview of the ESPC process during each phase of project development. Registration is open to all.

- Identify the ESPC authority as a tool for energy and cost savings at federal agencies;
- Describe the project planning activities that will set the stage for a successful ESPC project including the Acquisition Team's critical roles and responsibilities;
- Describe why an agency needs measurement and verification (M&V);
- Explain the importance of the Task Order Request for Proposals; and
- Recognize how ESPC projects are financed; and Identify how to manage transitions from pre-award to post-award and performance period requirements.
