DEP Reissues Invitation To Bid On Energy Education Curriculum Service Contractor

The Department of Environmental Protection is seeking the services of an experienced contractor to coordinate a statewide K-12 Energy Education Curriculum Integration Program.  The program must be completed by June 30, 2014.
The Energy Education Program is designed to educate teachers, administrators and building managers about energy use, ways to save electricity, and enhance student career development to include all energy technologies.
DEP is seeking bidders who have experience specifically related to developing and implementing a Pennsylvania-based energy education program for grades 5-7.  The contractor will use existing Pennsylvania-based educator guides, materials and other curricular resources to design, implement and evaluate a comprehensive energy efficiency and conservation education program.  
Regional professional development workshops (12 total; two within each DEP region) will be coordinated for teachers of grades 5-7.  Energy Star Portfolio Manager benchmarking, student energy teams and web-based information and resources will be included and utilized.
The invitation for bid (IFB) for this project has been reissued and the new IFB number is 6100024388. The IFB due (opening date) is 2/15/2013 at 9:00 a.m.  The revised specifications (which eliminate the need for DOE Act 48 certification) can be accessed online after 7:00 a.m. on 1/25/2013 and there will be no pre-bid conference.
Bids must be submitted online via Department of General Services’ (DGS) eMarketplace website located at  Specifications and all bid related documents can be accessed at the website by entering the previously mentioned bid number.
New organizations must register and obtain a DGS vendor number in order to submit a bid. Comprehensive instructions to complete this requirement can be found online.  The “Supplier Service Center” link located on the upper left side of the page contains all the information necessary to utilize the DGS eMarketplace.
