The GSA must (1) procure the most life-cycle cost effective and energy efficient lighting systems, and (2) ensure that procurements of lighting systems or their individual components maximize life-cycle cost effectiveness and energy efficiency.

Each public building that is constructed, altered, acquired, or leased by GSA must be equipped with the most life-cycle cost effective and energy efficient lighting systems. Each individual component of a lighting system that is replaced in the normal course of the maintenance of public buildings shall be replaced with the most life-cycle cost effective and energy efficient lighting system possible.
