Identifying Potential P3 Projects
The Georgia DOT is required to identify and submit to the State Transportation Board a list of projects on the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, or otherwise identified, that should be considered for pursuit as Public Private Partnerships. That list is to be submitted to the State Transportation Board on July 31st of every other year, beginning in 2009. The goal is to identify those projects that afford the greatest gains in congestion mitigation or promotion of economic development for Georgia.
Once projects have been identified, they go through a rigorous screening process to determine their viability as a P3 project and identify how they compare to other projects under consideration. This allows for focused project development and effective use of the Department’s limited resources.
The screening process includes analysis of the following factors:
- Project scope suitability
- Project maturity
- Financial feasibility
- Potential value added from private sector involvement
- Market interest
- Institutional/political support
For further information on the project screening process, see our P3 Guidelines.
