Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) Projects
ECIP projects are supported on the basis of potential energy savings and
economic self amortization. Accordingly, the A/E shall prepare and submit, in
report form, a discussion of his energy conservation investigation and present
engineering calculations as required by the ECIP in accordance with the
requirements of the Milestone and Distribution Schedules of the Appendix "A".
ECIP project analysis and documentation shall be prepared in accordance with
"Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) Guidance". The economic
analyses shall conform to the requirements of NAVFAC P-442, "Economic Analysis
In addition, when so indicated in the ECIP project authorization, the A/E
shall submit a report which studies the feasibility of metering the facility
prior to and after construction to document the actual energy savings due to
the project. This report shall be submitted along with the energy
conservation/economic analysis report.
Any changes in design or scope of the project will require new calculations.
If the Savings Investment Ratio (SIR) becomes less than one at any time during
design, the A/E shall notify the government. The A/E shall recalculate and
resubmit the ECIP SIR at the Final Submission to reflect the final
construction cost estimate and the estimated energy savings if these differ
from those presented at previous submissions.
Economic Analysis of System Alternatives
All projects require that the A/E use engineering judgment and/or preliminary
computations, calculations and cost comparisons to support the selection of
architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical arrangements and
systems. Documentation of these selections is required as part of the Design
Analysis Basis of Design for each design discipline (see the appropriate
design discipline chapters).
However, more sophisticated or complex projects may require an economic
analysis of various system arrangements or alternatives. Accordingly, when so
indicated in the Appendix "A", the A/E shall prepare and submit an Economic
Analysis of arrangement or system alternatives specified in the Appendix "A".
The economic analyses shall conform to the requirements of NAVFAC P-442,
"Economic Analysis Handbook".
Printing, Reproduction and Mailing
The A/E shall provide printing, reproduction and mailing services to furnish
copies of all documents required per the distribution schedule of the Appendix
"A". Costs for such services shall be priced under Section A of the A/E fee
proposal and shall contain no overhead and no profit costs. The A/E shall
indicate the number of sheets, copies and sets used in determining the costs
for printing, reproduction and mailing.
Travel and Subsistence
The A/E shall indicate all costs for travel and subsistence relative to
meetings (at the site or at Northern Division) and site investigation during
design as required by the Appendix "A" and as detailed in the chapters titled
"Meetings" and "Site Investigation Services". The A/E shall also provide unit
costs associated with travel and subsistence for meetings during design as
detailed in the chapter titled "Meetings". Costs for A/E travel and
subsistence during design shall be priced under Section A of the A/E fee
proposal and shall contain no overhead and no profit.
The A/E shall also indicate all costs for travel and subsistence relative to
