REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, THE
The purpose of this Agreement is to support GSA's project delivery of a new energy efficient data center. The project is titled "Social Security Administration National Support Center", also referred to as the SSA NSC project. In pursuit of GSA's goal of significantly reducing its environmental footprint, GSA is seeking to harness the potential of innovative building technologies and operations and maintenance practices, applied in a data center environment. As part of the design, construction, and commissioning processes, GSA will be evaluating innovative technologies and practices for the SSA NSC data center to meet and exceed the current federal standards for energy efficient and sustainable buildings, including but not limited to, the Guiding Principles for Federal Leadership in High Performance and Sustainable Buildings (Executive Order 13423), Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance (Executive Order 13514), and the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA).
GSA has requested assistance from LBNL to provide an independent, unbiased assessment, of the project requirements, energy metrics and calculations, project design, construction, and commissioning, to ensure an energy efficient and sustainable facility.
