Summit on Infrastructure and Public/Private Partnerships 2017

Jun 27, 2017
Marina del Rey, CA


Governing's 2nd annual Summit on Infrastructure and Public/Private Partnerships!

Governing convened the nation’s infrastructure leaders and P3 experts for a day-long, dynamic program of candid discussion and thought-provoking presentations on the great challenges and opportunities in U.S. infrastructure. States and cities across around the country are experimenting with leading edge, performance-based infrastructure projects. Attendees heard from P3 pioneers about how they're leveraging investment in vital transportation, water, and technology infrastructure.

Building on our 2016 inaugural P3 Summit and our popular GOVERNING P3 Special Report, we continue to unpack the complexities of public-private partnerships by exploring ways to successfully execute upon and manage P3s. The 2017 program focused on the “Tools of P3 Governance.” What makes P3s successful in the long-term, and how must effective P3s adapt over time?


Key topics included:

  • High Performance Deals: P3s as a Performance-Driven Procurement Process
  • Performance Measurement:     
    - Which projects lend themselves to effective performance measurement?
    - Ways to incorporate secondary goals, like economic and community development, into infrastructure performance metrics
  • Public Communication: Shaping Public Understanding and Support
  • Oversight and Accountability: Multi-stakeholder Governance of P3s
  • Audits: How can, and how should, financial and performance auditors review P3s?


More and more, P3s and other creative financing mechanisms are an indispensable tool for state and local jurisdictions as they seek to develop vital infrastructure for their communities. Therefore, it is important that governments build expertise in negotiating and managing these often complex, long-term agreements that assume risk on behalf of taxpayers.

Governing’s Summit on Infrastructure and Public/Private Partnerships and our forthcoming P3 Guide offer an indispensable resource of best practices, lessons learned and case studies that will help public officials negotiate successful agreements and avoid common pitfalls.
