Defense Infrastructure. Energy Conservation Investment Program Needs Improved Reporting, Measurement, and Guidance
DOD established ECIP, which funds projects at military installations that are designed to conserve energy or water, generate electricity from renewable sources, promote energy security, or accomplish a combination of these goals. Senate Report 113-174 included a provision that GAO review energy savings from ECIP-funded projects. This report assesses the extent to which DOD has (1) reported anticipated returns on investment or reduced energy use from ECIP-funded projects; (2) found that completed ECIP projects have resulted in cost savings or lower energy use; and (3) developed and implemented a strategic vision for ECIP. GAO obtained and analyzed the annual congressional notifications of the 441 proposed ECIP projects from fiscal years 2009 to 2015; analyzed applicable guidance, including DOD guidance from fiscal year 2011 for preparing ECIP proposals; developed, circulated, and analyzed a questionnaire to project managers; and analyzed project documentation to determine which contained attributes that formed part of DOD's strategic vision.
