FTA Public Private Partnership Program

Q. In Phoenix, we are working to develop legislation for a Public Private Partnership (PPP), with an aim to expedite some of the transit/transportation and other infrastructure projects. I noticed that the FTA has a pilot PPP program in Houston. I would like to see the solicitation document. All I want to do is to ensure that the draft legislation includes everything that will keep us FTA compliant (lessons learned from the AZ style CM@Risk legislation!)

A. We have asked FTA to suggest a contact person in Houston regarding the FTA Public Private Partnership Program there. The individual's name is Ms. Edie Lowery at Houston Metro. Her number is 713-739-6925. If this contact is not the person you are looking for, please get in touch with me (Joe Sperty) at 301-728-9682, and I will do further research.
