The Baltimore Regional Cooperative Purchasing Committee (BRCPC) recently released its 2021 Annual Report, outlining their work over the past year.
The report recaps activities of the committee including their procurement achievements in such unprecedented times, where the supply chain could not deliver essential supplies, such as N95 masks or certain food products. BRCPC was able to make these procurements, due largely to their willingness to adapt and collaborate through the committee.
In addition to these accomplishments, the Energy Board continues to be a great example of efficient and innovative government. BMC works with its member jurisdictions and the State of Maryland to leverage their collective government buying power. Savings are realized through purchasing in quantity and consolidating the administrative costs associated with procurement. Twenty-four members of the Energy Board, along with several other entities participate in the wholesale market cooperative procurements for their energy requirements.
The gross worth of BRCPC’s Energy Board is approximately $111 M for electric and natural gas commodities. The Energy Board, comprising all participating parties, is the largest BGE customer.
The BRCPC Energy Board’s primary focus is the oversight of the energy cost management and procurement programs for both electric and natural gas supply portfolios. This includes receiving, researching, and assessing energy market developments including renewable energy on an ongoing basis.
BRCPC looks forward to continued collaboration and success in 2022.
