For the Energy Division of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), Benningfield Group developed and maintains a customized web-based contract management system tailored to assist in tracking, managing and invoicing for several dozen contracts and work orders used to evaluate the effectiveness of the more than 200 utility-sponsored Energy Efficiency Programs. The system can create contracts, invoices, review and approve invoices, note payments and aging, automate messaging, and reporting. We also provide user support, regular updates to the user guide, answers to user questions, web-based training, and best practices guides.
We also developed and manage the CPUC’s Public Document Area—a “one-stop shop” for stakeholders to find all the public information related to California’s Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification work. The site’s content contains critical, over-arching information, such as important meeting dates, meeting notes, research plans, draft reports, and more. Users are encouraged to comment on documents and can sign up to get automatically notified of category or document-specific activity on the site.
