What is a P3 Project?

A P3 project is a contractual agreement between a public entity and private entity that:
  • Transfers the responsibility of a facility’s engineering, construction, operation and/or maintenance to the private sector for a defined period of time;
  • Allows the private sector to perform by contract a service previously provided by the public sector; and
  • Ensures the private firm receives payments either from existing revenue sources or through the collection of new tolls or user fees.

The two basic P3 project types are:

  • New Build Facilities – Adding capacity to the system by building something new.
  • Existing Facilities – Improving capacity or performance of the current system through a P3 arrangement.
