Abstract: Multi-municipal aggregation programs can be incredibly valuable in assisting local governments with implementation of projects. Aggregation programs remove several key technical, procurement, and decision-making challenges that local governments face. This guide includes the best practices and lessons learned from DVRPC’s Regional Streetlight Procurement Program (RSLPP), a multi-municipal aggregation program designed to enable conversion of LED streetlighting systems. The lessons learned can also be applied to other applications of aggregated procurement and implementation for local governments. This guide also attempts to evaluate the pros and cons of the two distinct procurement methods that DVRPC used when implementing the two rounds of this program— energy performance contracting and design-bid-build.
