Public-Private Partnerships

A Public-Private Partnership (PPP) is a funding model for public infrastructure projects. Public funding resources are limited, and government clients often struggle to keep pace with the needs of their infrastructure improvements. The PPP model provides a valuable mechanism to infrastructure owners as a method that will allow them to continue making improvements to the nation's infrastructure.

In a PPP, the public partner is represented by the government at a local, state, and/or national level. The private partner can be a privately-owned business, public corporation, or consortium of business entities with a specific area of expertise. The Federal Highway Administration encourages the use of public-private partnerships in the development of transportation improvements.

JMT also encourages the use of PPPs and provides the requisite professional design services that ensure innovation, imagination, efficiency, and ingenuity, which are considered when addressing complex transportation problems. These attributes are paramount to creating long-lasting and efficient PPP projects that generate the anticipated revenue while minimizing maintenance requirements.
