The Windows Volume Purchase Program has several windows products available from over 40 qualified vendors of high performance windows products including vendors offering low-e storm windows. At the product site (www.WindowsVolumePurchase.org), you will find our new tool to assist in the window selection process through the Optional Bid Request Form, provided to assist buyers with obtaining pricing in a timely manner from the windows Volume Purchase Program vendors. The process is easy:

  1. Buyers wishing to receive cost estimates from the vendors can fill out the form with the requested information and email it to Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) at windowsVP@pnl.gov.
  2. The form will then be emailed to vendors who sell the requested windows products through the Volume Purchase Program. Buyers may also specify vendors from which they would like to receive estimates, and only those vendors will be sent the bid request form.
  3. Vendors will return the form with estimates for the requested windows products to PNNL within the 14 or 30 calendar days specified on the form.
  4. PNNL will then email these estimates to the buyer and let the buyer make a final purchase decision.

At the site, you can also check out our most recent frequently asked questions (FAQ) section and a comprehensive listing of utilities -- by state -- offering incentives for the purchase of high performance windows. Please see Volume Purchase Products Web site for more details.
