3 TOPICS  DOD Green Procurement Policy  Federal Acquisition Regulations  Implementing GP  GP Tracking and Reporting

4 What do we mean by “Green Procurement”?  Showing preference for purchasing products that are: Made with Recycled Content Made with Biobased Products Energy and Water Efficient Alternative Fuels or Vehicles Renewable Energy Sources Sustainable Building Materials Lacking in Ozone-Depleting Substances (ODS) and Priority Chemicals EPEAT-registered Electronic Equipment Environmentally Preferable

5 Why Buy Green? Use products that are healthier for the workforce and the environment Save energy and natural resources Promote recycling programs Create jobs Support US agriculture Reduce disposal costs and hazards Save money!

6 How Can We “Go Green”?  Identify mission requirements and product/service contract requirements  Incorporate the procurement preferences Recycled content, biobased, environmentally preferable, energy efficient mission Green

7 DOD Green Procurement Policy and Strategy  Formally Establishes DOD Green Procurement Program (GPP) and Metrics  Requires that green products and services be considered as first choice for all procurements  Assigns responsibility to virtually every DOD employee; notes need for GPP awareness training  Requires implementation at organizational level where initial purchasing requirements are defined  Requires documentation of objectives, targets, and actions in an installation-level plan  Uses the EMS framework for implementation August 2004, Updated 2008

8 DOD Metrics  Increase in the number of contracts meeting requirements for recycled-content products in the Contract Action Report  Increase in the purchases of Federally-defined indicator items (applies to purchase card, MILSTRIP purchases)  Increase in the percentage of contracting personnel trained in Green Procurement  Increase in organizations or installations participating in the Federal Electronics Challenge  Decrease in contract audit findings indicating lack of compliance with GP requirements.

9 DOD GP Policy Requires:  Review of proposed procurements and acquisitions for inclusion of green procurement requirements  Consideration of environmental and energy aspects of a planned acquisition or procurement  Identification and development of specifications based on consideration of all of the green attributes identified

10 DOD GP Policy  Responsibilities of Procurement Request Originators and Acquisition Program Managers: Identify whether green products and services are available and can satisfy requirements for price, performance, and availability Ensure that relevant GP requirements are identified prior to submission to the contracting office Consult with contractual and environmental specialists to prepare statements of work or specifications that incorporate relevant GP requirements

11 DOD GP Policy  Responsibilities of Procurement Request Originators and Acquisition Program Managers: Document exceptions to GP requirements Apply life-cycle cost concepts to determine cost effectiveness of green alternatives Provide oversight of contract execution to ensure GP requirements are addressed in accordance with the terms of the contract

12 DOD GP Policy  Responsibilities of Procurement Offices: Review procurement requests for green supplies and services Provide guidance to procurement request originators Incorporate green procurement language, provisions and FAR clauses in contracts Ensure contract actions, through execution and close-out, meet FAR requirements for green procurement Place written justification in contract file to explain why EPA-designated items not acquired

13 DOD GP Policy and Strategy  Responsibilities of Environmental Managers: Implement an awareness program to promote GP Advise the procurement request originators and contracting officers on acquisition strategies for green products and services and provide regulatory and availability information Provide GP consultation support to all personnel and organizations involved in the purchasing process Provide recommendations to management personnel across all purchasing organizations on the preparation, implementation, and monitoring of the GPP Assist procurement organizations and personnel in utilizing the FPDS data and the ERLS tool to track performance

14 GP Put Into Practice  Air Force installations are increasing the use of biobased and other environmentally preferable cleaning products as part of their aircraft maintenance and other programs that clean machinery, equipment, and facilities.  Leading By Example: A Report to the President on Federal Environmental and Energy Management, Oct 2007

15 A Second Life! Match the product on the left with the recycled/biobased product on the right  Coffee beans, banana peels, tobacco leaves  Old blue jeans  U.S. currency  Potato starch and limestone  Automobile tires  Plastic drink bottles  Soybean oil  Wheat straw or jute  Cotton seed lint or crushed walnut shells Paper Park benches and clothing Playground material Ink Particleboard Spill Absorbent Coffee cups and tableware Food service packaging Pencils

16 Why Buy Green? Resource Conservation And Recovery Act of 1976 Federal Acquisition Regulations Executive Orders 13423 and 13514 2002 Farm Bill Energy Policy Act 2005

17 WHO HAS TO COMPLY?  Section 6002 of RCRA required procuring agencies to have procurement preference programs for recycled-content products  “Procuring Agencies” include: Any Federal Agency (e.g., DOD) Any state or local agency using appropriated Federal funds for a procurement Persons contracting with such agenciescontracting RCRA

18 RCRA 6002 (d)  All Federal Agencies having responsibility for drafting or reviewing specifications for procurement items shall: Eliminate any exclusion of recovered materials Eliminate requirements for the use of virgin materials Assure that specifications require the use of recovered material to the maximum extent possible

19 Designated Products – Mandatory Preference Programs  EPA’s “Buy Recycled” Program Products designated since 1995 Currently 62 designated products  USDA’s “BioPreferred” Program Products designated since 2006 Currently 42 designated items

20 Typical Post-consumer materials  Post-Consumer Materials are recovered materials specifically generated in the consumer sector (homes, businesses, etc). These make up the largest portion of the overall waste stream – so it is important to look for post-consumer material content in the products we purchase

21 EPA’s Buy Recycled Program: Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (CPGs) and Recovered Materials Advisory Notices (RMANs)  CPGs designate the products that must contain recovered material  RMANs provide recommended recycled-content percentages and guidance on buying recycled- content products CPG: What Products To Buy RMAN: Recycled Content Levels Example: Recycled paper Example: 30% post consumer

22 Exceptions  According to RCRA, procuring agencies must show procurement preferences for designated products unless the product: Is available only at an unreasonable price Will not meet reasonable performance standards Is unavailable within a reasonable timeframe or at a sufficient level of competition Price Performance Availability

23 How Do I Use An Exception?  If you purchase a noncompliant product for reasons of price, performance, or availability, AND the purchase was above the micropurchase threshold, you must document the reasons for not purchasing the compliant (e.g. recycled or biobased) product Called a written determination or justification

24 EPA-Designated Products under the Buy Recycled Program  Construction  Landscaping  Non-paper Office Products  Paper and Paper Products  Parks and Recreation  Transportation  Vehicular  Miscellaneous Product Categories:

25 CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS DESIGNATED CPG ITEMS:  Building insulation  Carpet  Cement and concrete  Consolidated and reprocessed latex paint  Floor tiles  Laminated paperboard  Patio blocks  Shower and restroom dividers  Structural fiberboard  Carpet cushion  Flowable fill  Railroad grade crossings/surfaces  Modular Threshold Ramps  Nonpressure Pipe  Roofing Materials

26 RMANs Recommended Material Advisory Notices  Provide content recommendations and guidance on buying recycled-content products  Developed by EPA using industry standards and current technology  Represent products that: Are commercially available Are cost competitive Adhere to quality standards Buy all your rubber floor tiles with of 90-100% postconsumer content! RMAN

27 PRODUCT CATEGORY % POSTCONSUMER FIBER CONTENT % RECOVERED FIBER Polyester Carpet25-100% PET Reprocessed latex paint - white, off- white, pastel colors 20% minimum Nonpressure Pipe – PVC 5-15%25-100% Construction Products Example of RMANs RMAN

28 Key Points  Which of the following is NOT an acceptable justification for purchasing a designated product without recycled or biobased content? a. The price is unreasonable b. The product will not meet performance standards c. The product will be shipped overseas d. The product is not available within a reasonable time frame

29 USDA’s BioPreferred Program  Biobased products are commercial or industrial products (other than food or feed) that utilize biological products or renewable domestic agricultural (plant, animal, and marine) or forestry materials  The Farm Bill (May 2002) made Federal agency purchase of biobased products mandatory  One year from item designation, Federal agencies must incorporate preference for the biobased item into their purchasing programs

30 Benefits of Biobased Products  Provide renewable raw materials for a broad range of nonfood and nonfeed products  Provide new and expanded markets for agricultural feedstocks  Reduce U.S. dependence on petroleum and other imports  Introduce products that are friendlier to the environment than their petroleum- based counterparts  Foster rural and sustainable development Soybean powered Agricultural Research Service tour bus

31 , On 16 March 06, the first Biobased Items were designated mobile equipment hydraulic fluids urethane roof coatings water tank coatings diesel fuel additives penetrating lubricants bedding, linens, and towels There are now 42 designated items! Designated Biobased Items

32 Examples of Designated Items under the BioPreferred Program  Lip care products  Biodegradable films  Hydraulic fluids  Biodegradable cutlery  Glass cleaners  Greases  Dust suppressants  Carpets  Carpet and upholstery cleaners  Multipurpose cleaners  Adhesive and mastic removers  Hand cleaners/sanitizers  Biodegradable containers  Fertilizers  Sorbents  Graffiti and grease removers  Laundry products  Bathroom and spa cleaners  De-icers  Films

33 Army Research Laboratory used soy-based composite materials for the hood of the M35A3 truck Biobased soy hydraulic Fluids are used in the elevators of The Statue of Liberty “Biowalls” made of soybean oil, compost, woodchips, and limestone are used by the Navy to treat contaminated groundwater

34  “Federal agencies are using or testing nearly three dozen types of biobased products, including lubricants, personal and institutional cleaning products, construction products, fleet maintenance products, solvents, and landscaping products” - Leading By Example: A Report to the President on Federal Environmental and Energy Management, Oct 2007 Who’s Using Biobased Products?

35 Do you know?  Which of these is an example of a biobased product? a. Soy-based roof coating b. Non-ozone-depleting aerosol c. 35% post-consumer recycled paper d. Chlorine-free industrial wipes

39 Other Aspects of Green Procurement Environmentally Preferable Energy and Water Efficient Alternative Fuels or Vehicles Renewable Energy Sources Sustainable Building Materials Lacking in Ozone-Depleting Substances (ODS) and Priority Chemicals EPEAT-registered Electronic Equipment

40 Environmentally Preferable Purchasing  EPP is the procurement of products or services having a lesser effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products or services Examples: products that are less toxic, contain reduced VOCs, are durable or repairable, contain less packaging

41 Energy Efficient Products  Purchase devices with minimal standby power – at or below one watt where available  Consider ENERGY STAR ® and other energy efficient products when purchasing or contracting for energy- using products

42 Ozone-Depleting Substances  EO 13148 requires agencies to phase out the procurement of Class I ODSs by 31 Dec 2010. Facilities must: Switch to safe, approved alternatives Evaluate present and future uses of ODSs in equipment and systems Turn in all excess ODSs from out-of- service equipment to DoD Class I ODSs CFCs Halons Carbon tetrachloride Methyl chloroform

43 Electronics  EO 13423 requires that: 95% of electronic equipment purchased be registered using the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Computers and monitors have energy- saving features enabled Electronics be managed over the life cycle
