The 2018 Public-Private Partnership Federal Conference

Tuesday, November 27, 2018
Marriott Marquis Hotel | Washington, DC

Please join Infrastructure Practice Group Partners, Barney Allison and John Smolen, at the 2018 Public-Private Partnership Federal Conference in Washington, DC on November 27-28, 2018.  This year’s agenda highlights innovative development being taken by local, state, and federal agencies under increasing pressure to cope with aging infrastructure.  The two-day program will consider key policies, financing structure, and program available to those evaluating public-private partnerships for their upcoming projects.

On Tuesday, November 27th, Mr. Smolen will facilitate a roundtable discussion entitled, “A Lawyer and an Engineer Walk Into a P3 Contract…Technical Documents Best Practices.”  He and his co-presenter will discuss successful strategies that can be employed to wrangle technical teams and produce strong technical specifications, contract drawings, and reference document packages for projects.

At 2:00 p.m., Mr. Allison will speak on the panel, “Public Buildings 101: The What, Why, and How.”  This interactive discussion led by members of the Performance Based Building Coalition will highlight case studies and lessons learned from U.S. P3 public building efforts as well as failed procurements.

On Wednesday, November 28th, Mr. Smolen will moderate the panel, “Moving Transit P3s Forward.”  This session will involve the review of current U.S. transit P3 projects and discuss key recommendations and considerations for public agencies to improve applicability of P3s in this sector.

With keynotes, case studies, panels, workshops, and diverse networking opportunities, conference attendees will deepen their understanding on the key principles behind P3s and other alternative delivery methods, and the role they can play in delivering essential transportation, health, defense, social, and water infrastructure projects.
