The full text article is not available for purchase.

The publisher only permits individual articles to be downloaded by subscribers.

As our nation’s infrastructure needs grow, the importance of focusing on alternative project delivery methods to accelerate project schedule and reduce cash flow needs is increasing. Public-private partnerships, or P3s, have been more extensively used in the U.S. in transportation-related transactions but their occurrence in the water sector is increasing, so provided here are details about structuring a P3 contract and important considerations in the procurement process. Areas of focus explored for this work include a review of legislation status, a general P3 overview with emphasis on value for money analysis, common advisor structures, risk allocation, and an overview of the solicitation process.

This work is designed to accompany a panel-style presentation where questions and discussion with the audience will contribute as well to the material covered in an interactive format supplementing that which is presented here.
