By January 1, 2005, the department of citywide administrative services, in conjunction with the economic development corporation, the department of buildings, the department of environmental protection and any other appropriate city office or agency, shall develop and implement a building commissioning program for all city-owned buildings, which shall ensure that the building systems operating within such buildings are doing so efficiently and according to their original design.

                     b. The program required to be developed and implemented pursuant to subdivision a of this section shall include training in energy efficiency and conservation for all building managers, building engineers, operations and maintenance staff and other appropriate employees of the city of New York.  Such training shall include, but not be limited to, the use of energy-efficient heating, ventilation and cooling systems, the reduction of electric lighting loads, energy-efficient building and building system upgrades, the incorporation of energy efficiency into planning processes and energy-efficient operations and maintenance practices.

                     d. By January 1, 2006, and by January 1 of every two years thereafter, the mayor shall provide a report to the speaker of the council, regarding the program developed and implemented pursuant to subdivision a of this section, which shall include, but not be limited to, an assessment of the building systems operating within each city-owned building, in accordance with that subdivision.
