New congressional caucus endorses P3s!

Public-private partnership (P3) engagements are finally being recognized as a huge national trend that will impact every region of the country and touch every level of government. But, in spite of the movement and the fact that P3s are becoming extremely common, the general public has not paid much attention. And, in some cases, even lawmakers and elected officials lack a thorough understanding of how P3s work and why they are such a welcome funding alternative for large public projects. All of this may be about to change. At least P3 engagements are getting bipartisan recognition at the highest levels of government.

 

In July, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL) and Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) formed the Congressional Caucus on Public-Private Partnerships (or the Congressional P3 Caucus). The caucus has three main goals: enhancing national awareness of P3s, facilitating their use and expanding their utilization into new arenas.

Special panel named to discuss public-private partnerships

 

House Committee forms new panel to study transportation, infrastructure P3s

Bill ShusterPublic-private partnerships may not have caught on as quickly in the United States as they have in foreign countries, and a special congressional panel has been organized to study why. The panel will look into the possible use of public-private partnerships (P3s) for transportation, economic development, public buildings, water and maritime infrastructure and equipment. The Panel on Public-Private Partnerships is an offshoot of the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.

 

Chaired by U.S. Rep. John Duncan, the panel is preparing to examine the current state of P3s in the United States. The panel will discuss the role of P3s in delivering transportation and infrastructure projects, if and how P3s can enhance delivery and management of such projects outside either the public or private sectors working alone and how to develop and implement P3 projects while balancing the needs of the public and private sectors.

 

John DuncanRep. Bill Shuster (top) who chairs the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, said that in spite of the private sector continuing to show interest in investing in infrastructure in the United States, "Aside from a selection of highway projects, utilization of P3s in U.S. transportation, economic development and water infrastructure has been limited." Shuster said the panel will study how P3s could be used effectively on such projects and "where greater opportunities may exist to leverage resources at the federal, state and local level." Shuster indicated that the findings of the panel could be used in future legislation.

 

Committee Vice Chair John Duncan (bottom) hailed the "unique strengths, advantages, and roles" of the private sector when it comes to transportation infrastructure. He said working together, the public and private sectors could increase efficiency and get the most bang for taxpayer bucks.

 

Committee and panel members agree that declining budget revenue has left many communities without the resources to address growing transportation needs. They are hopeful the panel can find ways for the private sector to work with government to help improve the country's infrastructure.

 

State taking charge of LaGuardia Airport makeover

 

Project carries $3.6 billion price tag; Cuomo says redevelopment long overdue

LaGuardia Airport
LaGuardia Airport

One of the grand old landmarks of New York, whose dedication was in 1939, is undergoing a $3.6 billion makeover. LaGuardia Airport will see a facelift that calls for a new central terminal with large open spaces, restaurants, shopping, new parking garages, free Wi-Fi and other amenities. New York officials are hoping to bring the aging airport into the 21st century.

 

During his State of the State address, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (pictured) said the state is taking charge of the project, as little but talk has gone on about upgrades since the 1990s. The governor also wants to develop a plan to upgrade cargo operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Cuomo's idea is to do for LaGuardia what he has Andrew Cuomo done with the Tappan Zee Bridge - a $3.9 billion project that will replace the structure.

 

The Central Terminal is generally the first building visitors see, and it is dark and dingy with narrow hallways. There is a small food court relative to those in other similar-size airports. Travelers complain about the lack of food service other than fast food type foods or snack shops. Areas of the ceiling leak, prompting airport workers to place buckets under the drips to catch the water. The airport doesn't even have Wi-Fi and only one concourse has an escalator for those with multiple bags.

 

The aging facility in 2012 was named by a travel magazine as the nation's worst airport - worst for check-in, security processes, baggage handling, design, cleanliness and more. And although some smaller contracts have been awarded for preliminary upgrades, officials feel the state stepping in will rush the project along.

 

Four companies have been asked to submit proposals by April for the Central Terminal project. Plans are for construction to begin at the end of the year. Contracting and subcontracting opportunities will be plentiful.

 

"We are going to redevelop those airports the way they should have been redeveloped many, many years ago," Cuomo said.

Upcoming education opportunities

 

UC Merced planning to install solar panels on buildings on, off campus

Zuhair MasedFacilities management officials at the University of California Merced are expected to pick a company soon to install photovoltaic systems on up to a dozen structures on and off the campus. The solar panels are expected to double the university's energy output. "Eventually, we would like them to be all over campus," said Zuhair Mased (pictured), director of energy and sustainability for the university. Some of the facilities on campus that would be equipped with the panels are student housing buildings, the Leo and Dottie Kolligian Library and some office buildings. The university already has a solar field which produces one megawatt of energy daily, which could power about 1,250 homes for a year, according to Mased. The additional rooftop panels would allow the university to generate about 30 percent of the electricity it uses annually. The year-long project is expected to begin in April. The project will not cost the university anything. Instead, it will enter into a power purchasing agreement with the private-sector partner it chooses. That firm will install and maintain the solar panels and the university will buy the power for a set number of years.

 

Several projects planned on Washington State University campus

Washington State University is preparing to sell $60 million in bonds for a variety of on-campus projects. The general revenue bonds will be used to fund housing updates on campus, dining system upgrades and to construct a Clean Technology Laboratory Building (CTLB). The CTLB is designed to enhance the state of Washington's high-demand research and education priorities in clean technology. At more than 95,000 square feet, the building will be home to the science and engineering programs that are seeking to advance new technologies in air and water quality, sustainable design and infrastructure. It will include research labs. The total project budget is $52.8 million with construction costs of $32 million.

 

University of Kansas planning to build new $17.5 million apartment complex

Theresa GordzicaMembers of the University of Kansas basketball team in the 2016-17 academic year may find themselves living in new apartments. The KU Board of Regents recently approved a resolution in favor of building a $17.5 million apartment complex for university basketball players. Construction could begin as early as next year. The Fieldhouse Apartments will provide lodging for up to 66 students, half of whom will likely be men's and women's basketball players. Each apartment will have a full kitchen, living and dining rooms, lounges on each floor, team meeting rooms, tutoring space and a multi-purpose room. The project will be financed with both private donations and bonds. Rent on the apartments will be used to pay off the remainder of the debt. Theresa Gordzica (pictured), the university's chief business and financial planning officer, said between $9 million and $10 million will be raised through private funds. Some athletic staff and other university officials says the project will improve recruiting for the school's basketball program and provide better security for some high-profile players.

  

South Dakota school district approves $45 million in construction projects

Nearly 20 different construction projects at schools in the Sioux Falls (South Dakota) School District have been approved by the school board to the tune of $45 million. The projects will include elementary, middle and high school facilities this year, many of which include security upgrades. Eleven of the 17 school projects will result in security upgrades, with projects including modifying the school office and expanding and modifying main school entrances to limit access to student areas. One of the largest projects on the list includes building a new school at the site of the current Jefferson Elementary. The new $11 million facility will house the district's Spanish immersion programs. The project is expected to be completed by the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. Classroom additions will be part of the projects at Discovery and Pettigrew elementaries, which will be completed in fall 2015.

Other upcoming contracting opportunities

 

Bill would give advantage to local bidders in Idaho state, local contracts

Mat ErpeldingA bill that would allow both local and state government in Idaho to choose Idaho companies over out-of-state companies in bidding has been filed by Sen. Elliott Werk. The bill not only favors local bidders, but also favors them even if their bid isn't the lowest. The favoring of local bidders would apply only to contracts for $5 million or less. The contracts could be awarded to local firms as long as their bid was within 5 percent of an out-of-state bid. "Our state needs additional opportunities for people who live here," said Rep. Mat Erpelding (pictured), co-sponsor of the bill. "People who take the time to live in Idaho invest in Idaho, start companies in Idaho should be given priority to work with Idaho government whether it's with state or local." In practice today, most contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, and agencies could still choose the lower bid. 
 

Bids due Feb. 12 for construction of Iowa emergency services building

Bids will be due on Feb. 12 for a proposed $3.1 million emergency services building that will be shared by the Forest City (Iowa) Fire Department and Forest City Ambulance Service. That would mean bids could be approved and a contract awarded to the low bidder at the Feb. 17 City Council meeting. Construction on the shared facility is expected to begin in April and be completed by June 2015. Although about $170,000 short on raising the money needed to construct the facility, officials are hopeful that the Worth County Development Authority will make a significant contribution toward the facility. And, since the building is not to be completed until 2015, officials will have from now through that date to raise the remaining funds.

 

Miami Beach to start over on its proposed $1B convention district redevelopment

Philip LevinePlans for a $1 billion redevelopment of the convention center district has been put on hold in Miami Beach. Plans called for restoring the area and adding a hotel, shops and restaurants. However, city commissioners recently agreed to terminate negotiations with the master developer that it had hired to design and build the more than 50-acre project. A new request for proposals will be issued for only the renovation of the city-owned convention center and a location will be sought for the possible addition of a hotel nearby. The two projects will now be split. Commissioners are hoping that now they can get a renovation project for the convention center under way and without a taxpayer referendum as required by law to lease city-owned land for a new center. "For the purposes of getting this project done fast, on time, on budget, it's unfortunate that we'll have to make a very tough, challenging decision," said Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine (pictured). "To some people, it's a little disheartening. To other people, it's a very fresh start." The city plans to have a new bid proposal ready in March for the convention center and another ready in April for the hotel portion of the project. Industry leaders have noted a renovation of the civic center and the addition of a hotel is a must to ensure more conventions and events that bring money to the city.

 

Hospital to get funding to fortify facility against future hurricanes

Singing River Health System in Pascagoula, Mississippi, has been awarded a $17 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The funds will be used to renovate the system's Singing River Hospital south tower to strengthen it against possible hurricanes. Included in the project will be the installation of windows that can withstand winds of up to 150 miles per hour. Construction should begin in early 2015 and take up to two years. Other projects already completed, including a $6 million renovation of the first three floors of the east wing and a remodel of the fourth floor, bring the total for projects to about $30 million. The redesigned floors will feature 15-16 rooms each. Officials say once all the repairs and renovations are completed, the facility will be like a new hospital.

 

San Diego approves multi-million-dollar bond for infrastructure projects

Mark KerseyInfrastructure projects are in the future for the city of San Diego, California. The City Council recently approved a $120 million infrastructure bond. The bond proceeds will include $40 million for street repairs, $21 million for storm drain upgrades, $11.2 million for the Mid City Fire Station, $3 million for design of Home Avenue and Skyline fire stations, $2.1 million for the South Mission Beach Lifeguard Stations, $4.7 million for Americans with Disabilities Act improvements and $1 million for sidewalk improvements. "This bond represents an infrastructure investment surge to tackle critical public safety, road, sidewalk, ADA and parks projects," said Councilman Mark Kersey (pictured). Kersey called the funding commitment "a big step forward" toward rebuilding the city. Officials estimate the current infrastructure backlog at about $1 billion. The infrastructure funding is in the form of a lease-revenue bond and is part of a $500-million, five-year bonding program previously approved by Council.

News about public-private partnerships (P3)

 

Bonds to be sold to purchase right-of-way for highway project

Tom SkanckeWidening of Interstate 15 in Las Vegas moved a step closer to becoming a reality when the Nevada State Board of Transportation recently approved the sale of $100 million in revenue bonds to buy right-of-way for "Project Neon." The project, estimated to cost $1 billion, is a public-private partnership between the Nevada Department of Transportation and a private company that will help finance, build and maintain the stretch of more than three miles. The private-sector firm has not yet been chosen, although several have shown interest in partnering with the state. The bonds will be sold Feb. 26. Transportation Board member Tom Skancke (pictured) said using a public-private partnership for this kind of project is new to the state as a way of improving the highway system. However, he said if the project is successful, public-private partnerships will likely be used on other projects in the state.

 

University of S. Carolina partnering with private firm for apartments, office space

A $94.6 million apartment complex and a $25 million office building will be built at the University of South Carolina, thanks to a public-private partnership. The apartment complex will be built behind the Carolina Coliseum and the office building will be in the Innovista research campus. The university is leasing the land to an Atlanta-based developer. That private firm will finance and build the facilities and then keep most of the profit from both facilities. The apartment complexes will feature 878 beds and the first one is slated for opening in fall 2015. The second will follow in fall 2016. The two complexes will feature a pool and fitness center and some retail spaces. More than 680 parking spaces will be included. Four more apartment complexes are being planned to add 1,600 beds to keep up with demand. Some campus land will be sold to another developer to build 700 more apartment beds that should open in fall 2015. And, a $60 million, 800-bed complex is expected to open in August 2015. The planned office space will open in July 2017 and include 110,000 to 130,000 square feet of space. The university will be paid $72,600 in rent annually by the developer. The developer will recoup its funds through management fees.

 

Air Force base looking to establish public-private partnerships for projects

Cassie BarlowA new initiative program called the Air Force Community Partnerships Initiative is under way for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The base is seeking partnerships with private-sector firms and local government entities. "As budgets continue to decrease, the Air Force is looking for alternative ways to support its mission and to really maintain the quality of life that we're used to for our airmen and for their family members," said 88th Air Base Wing commander Col. Cassie Barlow (pictured). "One approach to doing this is by exploring partnership opportunities with community stakeholders...It's all about leveraging resources to reduce costs and to find shared values." The Air Base and public- and private-sector community leaders will work together to leverage their skills and resources to help reduce costs for projects while still being beneficial to both partners. Barlow said successful P3s can be used across the Air Force and the Department of Defense to help lower costs and be more efficient. The partnerships can include 29 local municipalities, the state of Ohio, colleges and universities, private-sector companies and local businesses, local developers or anyone in the Miami Valley interested in a partnership with the base.
