Date Title Description
10/22/2014 - 1/2/2015 Private Sector Participation Online Dialogue

FTA is hosting an Online Dialogue to engage grantees and other stakeholders to inform the MAP-21 Private Sector Participation rulemaking, as well as obtain feedback on FTAís proposed guidance on assessments and model contracts.


Participate to discuss:

  • How stakeholders conduct assessments to determine whether use of a public-private partnership (P3) represents a better public and financial benefit;
  • What should be included in an FTA guide to developing standard P3 transaction model contracts;
  • Specific existing FTA laws, regulations, and practices that inhibit greater use of P3s and private investment in public transportation projects; and
  • A proposed process to modify specific existing FTA laws, regulations, and practices that would address such impediments.

To join the conversation and contribute an idea or comment:
