Public-Private Partnerships in Georgia

Friday, November 7, 2014
7:30 – 9:00 am

Public-private partnerships (P3s) in Georgia have the potential to finance and deliver a variety of public sector projects in a more cost effective manner. If properly implemented, P3s can address environmental infrastructure and other construction needs in a sustainable manner. In the 2014 Georgia Legislative session, Senate Bill 255, introduced to expand the utilization of P3s, made significant progress. Engagement of the architecture, engineering and construction community was critical to improving SB 255, but the work is not complete. The full potential of P3s to address sustainability and oversight must be realized.

Join us to learn why P3s are important, learn about key components of success and, most importantly, how to advocate for responsible policies regarding this delivery model.
