A new law enacted this year will allow state, county and local agencies throughout Georgia to negotiate public-private partnerships to build a broad range of public buildings and infrastructure. This law will serve as the centerpiece for The Future of P3s in Georgia, a one-day joint event cohosted by NCPPP and the American Council of Engineering Companies of Georgia on Sept. 24 in Atlanta.
The new law offers unprecedented opportunities for P3s. Leaders from Georgia and experts from throughout the country will explain the law and describe how local and state government agencies can take advantage of these opportunities. The event also is designed to familiarize public and private sector representatives who have not negotiated such partnerships with how they work.
Topics to be covered will include:
- P3 Fundamentals
- How P3s Differ from Traditional Privatization and Procurements
- The Legal and Regulatory P3 Environment in Georgia
- Initial Steps in the P3 Process
- Why Government Entities Pursue P3s
- What Attracts the Private Sector to P3s
- Evaluating Whether a Project is Suitable for a P3
- Case Studies of Successful Projects
- Identifying and Allocating Risk
- Financing Tools
The Future of P3s in Georgia will be held at the Georgia International Convention Center, adjacent to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. For more details, including registration information, visit the event website.
