Summary

The District of Columbia City Council enacted the Energy Star Efficiency Amendment Act in December 2004, which requires government officials to procure Energy Star qualified products by amending the District of Columbia Procurement Practices Act of 1985. Under this law, all agencies under the mayor's office must purchase Energy Star products when at least 3 manufacturers make the product, and at least 3 vendors sell the product. The legislation also requires agencies to use life-cycle cost analysis while examining bids for the acquisition of all motor fleet and mobile equipment. In April 2009, the Mayor also issued Mayoral Order 2009-60 promoting environmentally friendly product purchasing practices within the District.
