APWA Monthly Event--Private Partnerships for Public Needs

Public-Private Partnerships have traditionally been used to finance new toll roads and bridges. Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) include many different procurement approaches that can help public works agencies deliver projects of all kinds. International and domestic public works agencies have used PPPs to accelerate project delivery, improve service quality, facilitate project finance, and transfer project risks, where appropriate, to the private sector. Hear ways public works agencies can potentially benefit from these partnerships and what resources are available.
