Public Private Partnerships

Governor Jan Brewer signed legislation which allows the Arizona Department of Transportation to use public-private partnerships as a tool to address Arizona’s transportation requirements.  This new law grants the Department broad authority to partner with the private sector to build or improve Arizona transportation facilities.  The new authority gives ADOT additional methods to fund the construction and enhancement of roads, transit and other transportation facilities.

Although often thought of simply as “toll roads”, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs, or P3s) actually allow for many options to fund and construct new and enhanced facilities.  With the passage of HB 2396, ADOT now has the legal authority to explore these options.

Meanwhile, MAG has been hard at work issuing white papers and informational material on managed lanes.  They’ve issued two white papers, one on legal and regulatory issues and the other that summarizes some recommendations.  Both of can be downloaded from AZAGC website by clicking below:

MAG White Paper – Summary of Recommendations

MAG White Paper – Managed Lanes Legal and Regulatory Issues

AGC White Paper - Recommended Best Practices for the Use of Construction Management/General Contractor on Highway and Transportation Projects in the Public Sector

Over the next several months, the Department will be developing rules, policies, procedures and guidelines to provide guidance to potential public and private partners.

ADOT Construction Manager at Risk Guidance Document available for Comment

ADOT has released a draft copy of its Construction Manager at Risk Guidance Document for comment.  The original document was developed through an AGC, ADOT, ACEC stakeholder task force in 2006.  Since then a number of revisions have been made to address documentation requirements, procedures each CMAR contractor should follow and recent changes to ARS 28-7361.
