The Virginia Office of Public-Private Partnerships (VAP3) utilizes the most current version, 2014 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines (Manual), to explain our project delivery framework to identify, evaluate, develop and deliver public-private partnership (P3’s) projects in Virginia. The Manual augments the Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA) of 1995, as amended.
On May 14, 2014, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) Resolution requested the VAP3 to review and update the 2012 version of the Manual for 2014. This included enhancing the PPTA program and project transparency, increasing public engagement, opportunities for increased briefings and additional involvement of the CTB, and increased competitiveness in the P3 procurement.
The recent Request for Comment (RFC) document generated over 100 comments and suggestions between July 21, 2014 and August 19, 2014, from a variety of individuals, advocacy groups, small businesses, public officials and industry groups. Many of the comments and feedback were incorporated in the Draft 2014 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines to enhance the overall comprehensive nature of the document.
The Draft 2014 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines was released on September 16, 2014, for public comment. The public comment period closed on November 1, 2014. Comments and suggestions were received from a broad cross section of respondents including private citizens, public officials, and advocacy and industry groups. Many of the suggestions received during the public comment period have been included in the Updated 2014 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines. NEW!
