General Services Administration

Common Area Maintenance/Energy Optimization Audit (CAM/EO Audit)

In my opinion, the largest untapped area of government savings over the next ten years will be derived by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) performing Common Area Maintenance/Energy Optimization Audits (CAM/EOA Audits). The GSA can substantially increase energy savings and reduce CAM charges by performing audits of existing equipment and services provided by government contractors and instituting new technologies such as concrete technologies, energy management systems, solar panels, plumbing retrofits, window/door retrofits, and advanced landscape design.


CAM and energy management system charges have not yet fallen in line with dramatic technological advances causing a disconnect in fees paid for services. CAM/EOA Audits can result in monumental cost savings and job creation.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. NO
