A brief description of the LCCA policy(ies) and practice(s):
LCCA is considered for projects that involve design/purchase of equipment that uses energy and/or water. LCCA is not required as part of the Request for Proposal (RFP) process but is considered along with project budget requirements. For example, when purchasing computers the life cycle cost associated with the energy consumption of various computer models is considered along with other purchasing criteria such as memory, screen size, industry reviews, etc.
