  • Federal P3Bootcamp

    Over the past several years, the federal government and private industry have invested billions of dollars in public-private partnership and public-public/public-private partnership projects. These projects have included office buildings, energy infrastructure, parking facilities, housing, training facilities, multi-use facilities, research laboratories, outpatient clinics, roads, bridges and tunnels.  It is the largest P3 market in the country.

    More projects are needed, as dozens of federal agencies have billions of dollars in unaddressed infrastructure needs. The White House has signaled that it plans to make private investment an important part of the revitalization of infrastructure nationwide, including federal assets. But for companies that have not worked on federal P3s yet, the question is: How do you do P3 business with the federal government?

    NCPPP’s Federal P3Bootcamp is an intensive, day-long training course that will provide the background on how P3s work, the history of federal partnerships, the procurement process and the likelihood of where new opportunities will arise.  Participants will finish the Federal P3Bootcamp with the knowledge that will allow them to hit the ground running once the federal government enacts its new P3 policies for federal projects.

    Federal P3Bootcamp is a presentation of NCPPP, with sponsorship from the Association of Defense Communities and the Society of American Military Engineers.

    8:00 to 8:30 AM         Attendee Check-In / Continental Breakfast

    8:30 – 9:45 AM           Welcome Remarks and Federal P3 Bootcamp Overview
    This opening session will take a first-look at public-private partnerships and lay a foundation for those new to the P3 world. It will describe P3s, how the federal government uses them, and how they differ from more traditional procurement methods such as appropriations. The session will also take a closer look at types of federal P3s, with a focus on performance-based contracting and leases.

    9:45 to 10:00 AM      Networking Break

    10:00 to 10:40 AM        Opportunities in Federal P3s, Part 1
    Now that we know what federal P3s are, we’ll take a closer look at how they have been used by the federal government so far. This session will look at several successful P3 initiatives so far, including military housing privatization, enhanced use leasing and energy savings performance contracts, along with financing tools that the federal government offers to facilitate P3s.

    10:40 AM – 12:00 PM       Where are We Going: Opportunities in Federal P3s, Part 2
    We’ve heard for years that the federal government does not have the ability to finance large-scale construction projects anymore and will be seeking the assistance of the private sector. So, where exactly is the federal government heading? This forward-looking panel will address the future of federal P3s with a focus on new and upcoming projects.

    12:00 – 1:00 PM       LunchKeynote Speaker

    1:15 – 2:15 PM        Understanding Federal Budget Scoring and Its Influence on Federal P3s
    We know the opportunities, but what are the challenges associated with federal P3s? This session will explore how federal budget rules impact the use of P3s at the federal level and how both the public and private sectors can better navigate those rules.                    

    2:15 – 3:15 PM        Impact of Legislative Action on New Federal P3 Opportunities
    Infrastructure development was a central part of President Trump’s campaign. Since taking office, we have heard some of his plans, but are still waiting on the administration’s promised infrastructure bill. What do we think will be in that bill? How have the tax reform bills impacted federal infrastructure and, specifically, P3 policy? This session will take a close look at what is going on in Washington, DC and how it impacts P3s.

    3:15 to 4:00 PM          Roundtable Wrap-up
    Now that we know about federal P3s, what questions do you all have? This last session will be an open discussion to ask questions of the speakers and attendees.
