Body
During the January 2010 County Board Cycle, the Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) submitted a report seeking approval for Phase 2 of performance contracting.  The report from DTPW included $1.0 million in improvements to be completed by Ameresco.  The improvements were as follows:

Due to the longer payback period, the Department of Administrative Services removed the work to be completed at Transit Fleet Maintenance and Transit Administration Building.  The longer payback period was due to the difficulty accessing and removing the old lights and fixtures.  The updated work was reflected in the due diligence report that was submitted in the April 2010 cycle by the Department of Administrative Services (DAS).  This reduced the total project amount to $634,000.
