    While it is a good idea to require baseline audits, the scaled approach simply is not realistic. Grouping a 15000 SF commercial property with a 2.5M SF commercial property in a one-size-fits-all fee structure does not account for the fact that audits for buildings larger than 75k-100k SF cost more than the $2000 cap proposed, let alone buildings in the multiple hundreds of thousands or millions of SF so common across the city. Consult with current audit service providers to develop a more practical scaled approach or we’ll all suffer from the “you get what you pay for” results – which will be nothing.
