Summit on Infrastructure and Public/Private Partnerships 2016

May 12, 2016
Santa Monica, CA


A recent Governing study found that half of all state and local leaders surveyed believe that a lack of infrastructure investment is their most significant financial problem. Given this significant research, Governing launched our first Summit on Infrastructure and Public-Private Partnership for state and local government officials who are tasked with updating their infrastructure but lack the funding.

Are you considering a major infrastructure project and are trying to decide if a P3 would be suitable? Is your jurisdiction embarking on a P3 AND your team needs more guidance on how to implement and manage the project? Governing’s Summit on Infrastructure & Public Private Partnerships provides the critical tools and know-how to successfully navigate a P3. 

Governing convened the nation’s infrastructure leaders and P3 experts for a day-long program of dynamic sessions, candid discussion, and thought-provoking presentations: Attendees heard from state and local P3 pioneers on ways to leverage investment in performance-based, innovative infrastructure that’s vital for your community.

This event took the mystery out of P3s with comprehensive yet accessible analysis of must-know P3 strategies:

  • Evaluating, pricing and managing risk
  • Defining clear project goals and cost projections
  • Hear from industry experts on life-cycle cost considerations and private sector equity
  • Case Studies - Public sector leaders who have implemented P3 will share lessons learned and tips for success

While P3s are gaining popularity, they’re under-utilized in the U.S., relative to other countries. The single biggest barrier is a lack of public-sector expertise in negotiating what can be complex, long-term agreements that assume risk on behalf of taxpayers. It is difficult to achieve the perfect balance between risk, reward and value. This Summit shared best practices, lessons learned and case studies that will help governments negotiate successful agreements and common pitfalls.
