For the Energy Division of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), Benningfield Group developed and maintains a customized web-based contract management system to assist in tracking and managing several dozen contracts and purchase 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 exception reporting. We also provide support and training for users through an online user guide and available “best practices” modules.
We also developed and manage the Energy Division’s Public Document Area—a “one-stop shop” for stakeholders to find all the public information related to California’s Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification (EM&V) work. The site’s content contains critical, over-arching information, such as important meeting dates, meeting notes, project status documents, and more. Users of this site can also search for work orders, research plans, and final reports for CPUC projects, as well as proposals of IOU EM&V studies approved by the Energy Division.
We also provide user support, regular updates to the user guide, answers to user questions, web-based training, and best practices guides.
