  • Provide guidance on commissioning best practices.
  • Demonstrate how commissioning can help Federal facility managers meet energy efficiency goals and LEED certifica-tion requirements.
  • Demonstrate how commissioning can be integrated in facil-ity management and O&M programs to make those programs more efficient and effective.
  • Demonstrate how different types of commissioning (such as retrocommissioning and continuous commissioning) can be incorporated into a variety of building types and applications, above and beyond the most commonly understood commis-sioning approaches.
