States passing legislation to enable P3 projects

Mary Scott NabersPublic-private partnership (P3) engagements are the new norm! Governmental entities, lacking the funds needed to meet public needs, are reaching out to private sector contractors and bringing them along as partners for large projects.


A majority of the states (31 in all) have passed legislation enabling P3s and most of those states are aggressively courting potential private sector partners. The federal government chose not to establish a centralized system, but is instead allowing agencies to enact their own P3 processes. Because there is no standardized engagement process, P3 laws throughout the country are varied and diverse to say the least.

More contractor-friendly bills headed to committee


Legislation geared toward ensuring more federal contracts for small businesses

Mike Coffman
Mike Coffman

With six contractor-friendly bills pushed out earlier this month, the House Small Business Committee is gearing up to debate another handful on Thursday. The bills address small business contracting and aim to ensure that more small businesses win federal contracts.


Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado added to those bills this week with his bill that is intended to improve procurement training as a means of reducing fraud and ensuring that more cases are referred to the inspector general at the Small Business Administration. It increases the penalties for fraud involving companies that misrepresent their eligibility to compete for small business contracts.


One of the bills encourages partnerships between small businesses seeking to win federal contracts with others that have already been through the process and won awards. The Small Business Administration (SBA) would have oversight of more than a dozen federal mentorship programs, which it is hoped will allow small businesses to do business with multiple agencies.


Another of the bills seeks to expand the Women's Procurement Program that was designed to increase contracting opportunities for woman-owned businesses.


The appeals process for contract bundling - when a variety of small companies work together to bid on a contract to provide the goods or services sought - would be reworked by another of the bills to be taken up. Small businesses are often at a disadvantage when those that are bundled are subcontractors to large companies.


And finally, another of the bills would overhaul the SBA's reclassification of the standards it uses for determining if a company is indeed a small business. There are allegations that some smaller companies are being paired with larger companies that do not qualify as a small business, thus limiting some truly smaller companies from being able to compete for contracts.


The bills that pass out of committee will next head to the full House for debate. Chief among the previously passed bills was legislation that would increase the number of federal contracts awarded to small businesses. It would increase from 23 to 25 percent the contracting goal for small businesses. Supporters of that bill say that alone could result in $11 billion more in new work for small businesses.


Washington State considers privatizing services


Variety of back-office jobs could be bid out for private sector contracting

Chris Gregoire
Chris Gregoire

Since giving Gov. Chris Gregoire authority to bid out back-office work, Washington State has been looking a lot closer at some of those jobs. State officials have until October to decide on whether more of the state's printing service should be contracted out to the private sector. The state also is considering whether to contract with the private sector for Web designers and state mail couriers. The new bill allows the governor to farm out up to six government functions every two years.


The print shop spends more than $8 million on printing that includes forms, business cards and other large orders. The debate is over whether the state print shop can complete the work there as efficiently as their counterparts in the private sector. The Web design accounts for $1.5 million. Taking over those duties will go out for bid in April and a decision is expected by July. Regarding state mail couriers, that service costs the state $700,000 per year. Bids will go out after late March and a decision is due in September.


Since the new authority was given to the governor, three state agencies already have been awarding competitive bids for printing needs - the Dairy Products Commission, the state lottery and the Secretary of State's Office. All but one of the bids went to private companies, with one being won by the state printer bid.

Florida Atlantic University in line for new 600-bed residence hall

Florida Atlantic University's growing undergraduate population has resulted in the Board of Trustees approving construction of a new 614-bed residence hall. The $41.7 million project will be paid for through issuance of a bond that will be repaid with student rental fees. Not only are residence halls important for recruiting new students, said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders, but they also help with student retention. The facility could be as much as eight stories and is the university's ninth housing facility. It will up the number of beds available on campus to more than 4,200. The university's enrollment continues to grow in spite of frequent tuition increases, but university officials continue to look for ways to cut costs to make up for reduced funding provided by the state legislature.

New $50 million nursing facility approved for University of Michigan

A new $50 million facility has been approved for the University of Michigan. The facility will add approximately 75,000 square feet of space to the existing nursing school. The school currently operates out of a nearly 100-year-old building that is a former hospital. The new facility will include a clinical learning center with simulation and skill labs, simulated patient suites and some offices for faculty and administration. There will also be 125 parking spaces needed to support the facility, but officials are hopeful more students will use transit services to avoid adding to the parking dilemma.


Lower construction prices give North Carolina schools money for technology

Thanks to construction projects that have come in under budget, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school system in North Carolina has some extra funds to spend on technology. But the district is asking the campuses to invest in the technology as well through individual fundraisers. School officials have released $75,000 in funding for the project. Those campuses that receive federal Title 1 funding for schools in economically disadvantaged areas can use that funding toward their part of the cost-share. The system saved $5.6 million from a $250 million construction bond package approved in 2006. Officials expect the remainder of the funding after the technology funds are stripped out, to be used on a variety of other construction projects.


Kent State planning construction projects, upgrades to labs, facilities
At Kent State University, officials are planning to spend $170 million on projects that include upgrades to science labs and new facilities for the university's architecture, art and technology departments. The university's board of trustees voted to issue a $170 million bond to pay for the projects.


Northwest Ohio's crime forensics lab to be located at Bowling Green 

Mike DeWine
Mike DeWine

The new Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation laboratory will be built on the campus of Bowling Green University, announced Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. The $1.7 billion funding in the state budget will be for construction projects statewide, including the lab. The lab will cost $11.9 million. No architectural plan has been conceived yet, but officials say they are looking at a space of about 35,000 to 40,000 square feet. The current space for the lab, which is leased, totals about 19,000 square feet. The facility will be built on campus property but state money that is backed by bonds would be funneled through the attorney general's office. There also is discussion afoot about adding a classroom setting in the facility. DeWine's vision is to have the state become a leader in forensic science. DeWine called the project a win-win situation to help train the next generation of forensic scientists and investigators. 

Ohio school district looking at five options for school construction
Middletown City Schools officials and taxpayers are looking at five possible options for construction or renovation of new middle schools and high schools. Option one is a $69 million effort to build a new high school and remodel the current high school for grades six through eight. Option two carries a $62 million price tag to build a new middle school for grades six through eight and renovate and expand the high school by 60,000 square feet. Option three would cost $49 million and would build a middle school for grades seven and eight while renovating and expanding the high school. Costing $54 million, option four would build a new high school and a new middle school for grades seven and eight. Option five would cost $55 million and would build a new school for grades seven through nine while renovating the high school. When the option to be used is finalized, 74 percent of the projects will be paid for by district residents and the remaining amount will be paid by the Ohio School Facilities Commission.

Ohio governor pushes for $1.74 billion in construction, repairs

John Kasich
John Kasich

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is pushing legislators to approve his proposal for $1.74 billion in new construction and repair projects throughout the state. In his two-year capital spending bill, Kasich calls for funding for new construction or upgrades to existing buildings on college and university campuses, as well as maintenance for the state's parks and roads and bridges. Approximately $400 million of the total would go toward higher education projects that have been prioritized by the various colleges and universities in the state. Another $675 million would be allocated to public school facility projects. The Ohio Public Works Commission would get $300 million for roads, bridges and other infrastructure and $290 million would be dedicated to state park repairs and other Department of Natural Resources facilities, state prisons and veterans homes. No local community projects are included in the plan. "We want to create a formula for community projects in the next capital bill," said Kasich.


Santa Clara approves finance plan to build new stadium

A $1.18 billion football stadium has been approved by the city of Santa Clara, California. The city plans to borrow up to $785 million in debt while the National Football Association will loan $200 million to the 49ers football team, which will lease the stadium. The team will then provide the balance of the cost. The 167.2-million square-meter stadium will seat up to 68,500 and will have 40,000 parking spaces. Construction is expected to begin in the second quarter of next year, with a completion date hoped for in time for the 2014 season.

News about public-private partnerships (P3)


New primary-care health facility planned for New Orleans

Mitch Landrieu
Mitch Landrieu

A new primary-care facility is on the drawing board for the city of New Orleans. The Orleans Parish Hospital Service District has agreed to a proposal from the Daughters of Charity Services in New Orleans to build the facility in the eastern part of the city. The hospital district will lease the land that was the former Methodist Hospital site to the Daughters of Charity, who will build a 15,000-square-foot facility. Completion is expected late next year, with services to begin 60 days after completion. The hospital district plans to redevelop the Methodist building into an 80-bed community hospital. It will be the first full-service hospital serving the area east of the Industrial Canal since Hurricane Katrina ravaged the area in 2005. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu says a full-service hospital in that area has been "a top priority," and called primary-care operations "critical to the operation of a full-service hospital." The primary-care facility will be funded with a combination of $2 million in public and private investments from Daughters of Charity, $2 million in federal Community Block Grant funds from the hospital district and the city and $1 million in settlement funds from a class-action lawsuit. The new center will offer primary care, pediatric care, pharmacy services, behavioral health and prenatal care for more than 20,000 area residents.


Eight teams submit proposals for P3 consulting contract for Yonkers schools
Eight teams have responded to a request for proposals for a consulting team to look into the possibility of using a public-private partnership in the Yonkers (New York) Public Schools. The winning team will conduct a study to determine if a P3 would be advantageous in helping finance the $700 million first phase of a capital construction campaign. That phase will be the first of a $1.7 billion plan for the school system. The P3 would be a design, build and maintain contract, with the school district retaining ownership of the buildings. A long-term plan to meet the district's growing population identified $1.7 billion in construction needs for renovations and new construction and $460 million for emergency repairs. Officials hope to have the study completed by the end of the summer. 


P3 could make hunting for parking spots obsolete task

Zia Yusuf
Zia Yusuf

Searching for parking in Indianapolis could become a "thing of the past," according to Zia Yusuf, CEO of Streetline. Streetline and a public-private partnership between the city and Xerox called ParkIndy, are joining forces and have created a free smartphone app designed to help motorists find open parking spaces. Sensors in the pavement in parking areas detect when a space opens up. And once motorists park their vehicles, they can use the app's timer to monitor the time left on the meter where they parked. The app also allows a motorist to track where his or her vehicle is parked, provides information on rates, hours and time limits for metered parking and parking on the street and allows a motorist to get walking directions to his or her vehicle when returning to the parking space.
