Disclaimer: The commissioning firms listed above have been qualified by the Oregon Department of Energy to perform commissioning services in schools. This list is not intended to endorse the qualifications of the firms listed to perform work other than the services authorized in the RFQ or the Commissioning and Report Requirements. School districts and authorized state agencies are not permitted to use this list of contractors to contract for project management, construction management, design, installation, or any other services that do not match the description of services outlined in the RFQ. Nothing in the solicitation process, RFQ, or any contemplated or final Prequalified List Agreement for Commissioning Services relieves any Contracting Agency from complying with all laws and regulations applicable to public procurement.


Choosing a Commissioning Firm
 
When choosing a commissioning firm, school districts should consider the firm's qualifications and how they match up with the district's current needs and future plans.  

The Oregon Department of Energy cannot advise you on which firm to select. We do have some advice for steps you can take to select the best match for your district:
  1. Confirm and follow and school district procurement rules and regulations regarding selecting and hiring a commissioning firm.
  2. Consider contacting at least three firms directly to discuss availability and needs.
  3. Schedule site visits for commissioning firms so the firm is able to provide a bid estimate and discuss their services with you.
  4. ​Review all bid estimates and select the bid that meets your school district's needs.
All proposals are on file at ODOE. Contact our Schools Team​ for more information or to review the proposals.

 
Hiring a Commissioning Firm

After choosing the firm that best fits your school district's needs, you will complete a Scope of Work Approval Form with your commissioning firm. 

The Scope of Work Approval Form will be submitted to ODOE for review and approval, prior to executing a contract. Once the form has been approved by ODOE, the district and commissioning firm may complete a contract that specifies the approved scope for services and specifies that all SB 1149 Schools Program energy audit requirements will be met.
