*62.2 average availability calculated from ERIC returns for year ended April 2017. **92% average availability on the CEF scheme using Contract & Performance Assurance
Our in-house team of consultants, legal, finance, contract management and M&V experts not only monitor and verify savings and performance on a regular basis, but check and double check any decisions and actions a contractor or Trust may want to implement in the event of any performance discrepancy or change in circumstances.
Although Capital constraints may make it difficult for some Trusts to justify ‘platinum level’ maintenance contracts, a ‘belt and braces’ approach is not the prudent option to take, as the Plant Performance illustration above demonstrates. Contract & Performance Assurance not only pays for itself, but protects the Trust from poor outcomes, and through regular engagement with all parties involved, ensures fair and proper Contract enactment and the savings guarantee delivered.
CEF has successfully delivered over 40 NHS energy schemes. Our sector recognized expertise, coupled with a robust and fit for purpose process allows us to consistently deliver schemes with an average of 92% system availability compared with an average of only 64.2% availability for NHS in-house managed schemes*. Which aptly demonstrates that an improved system availability delivers a far greater reliability and assured savings.
As a credentialed quality assurance provider with certified measurement and verification professionals within the team, CEF’s role as Contract and Performance Assurer, is to ensure that the Contract is properly enacted and the savings guarantee met, so that both parties, Trust and Contractor, receive what they are due.
