Public-private partnerships (PPPs) continue to garner more attention as a means of financing and addressing our nation's growing infrastructure deficit. Increasing public investment in our nation's infrastructure is essential. PPPs simply provide supplemental funding to traditional public financing.
Each State that utilizes PPPs must approve enabling legislation. This enabling legislation can provide broad authority, or it can be limited to a specific project and provide numerous restrictions or limitations.
Contractors play a critical role in developing PPPs and with this role new risks and opportunities exist for contractors participating in PPPs. Many risks are unique to PPPs and contractors must properly allocate this risk appropriately.
This site provides resources to assist contractors who want to learn more about PPPs and how they can be used as a tool to finance infrastructure projects. AGC has developed a white paper that focuses specifically on the role of the contractor in PPPs.
