Public-Private Partnerships and the SLC States: Recent Developments

Sujit CanagaRetna

In an effort to develop alternate funding sources to implement critical transportation and infrastructure projects, states across the country increasingly are looking to public-private partnerships, known as P3s, as an important strategy.  P3s are contractual agreements between a public agency and a private entity facilitating a more robust private sector role, including in the design, construction, finance, long-term operation and traffic revenue of these transportation and infrastructure projects.  With encouragement from the federal government, three dozen states have enacted authorization frameworks for P3s. SLC states have been particularly active in pursuing the P3 format for a number of years. This webinar provided the latest perspectives and approaches from three SLC states—Florida, Texas and Virginia.
