The Federal Product Procurement Working Group (PPWG) was formed by the Interagency Energy Management Task Force (IATF) to help Federal agencies meet Federal requirements surrounding the use of efficient products.
Recognizing the benefits of efficient products, Presidents and Congress have both mandated their purchase by Federal agencies through the following laws and regulations:
The National Energy Conservation Policy Act (NECPA) Section 8259b (as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 2005) and Executive Order (E.O.) 13423 require Federal agencies to purchase energy-consuming products that are ENERGY STAR® qualified or FEMP designated.
NECPA Section 8259b (as amended by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007), E.O. 13221, and E.O. 13423 require Federal agencies to purchase energy-consuming products with a low standby power level of 1 watt or less.
The Instructions for Implementing Executive Order 13423 require Federal agencies to purchase water-consuming products that are WaterSense labeled.
The PPWG continues to operate under the IATF, providing a forum for Federal agency information exchange and project facilitation surrounding Federal goals and requirements.
Federal Product Procurement Working Group membership is open to all Federal agencies currently involved with the IATF. FEMP provides chairmanship and support for the group.
