Public-Private Partnerships (P3)

PPP Fundamentals and Best Practices: a Virtual PURC Workshop

This workshop was hosted September 21, 2021. Stay tuned for future offerings!
Workshop Calendar

Struggling to address the growing infrastructure gap in your city? Not sure where to start with unsolicited Public-Private Partnership (PPP) proposals? A critical consideration is that while every project can be a PPP, that doesn’t mean every project should. PPP can provide value, but it can have consequences if not managed well. Designed for public officials and their fiscal and legal staff, this workshop will introduce you to the principles and best practices in PPP. You will learn:

  • Challenges of securing infrastructure and the different ways it can be provided
  • Elements of a PPP
  • How to structure incentives to promote effective provision of service
  • How to establish a public comparator and address unsolicited proposals

This workshop will utilize case studies from around the world, including, but not limited to, Florida Statute 255.065.

CLE Credits

The workshop is approved for 5 General CLE Credits through The Florida Bar. Workshop participants will be provided the course number and can report their CLE credits online thru the member portal.

Foundational-Level Certified P3 Professional Program

Contact us to discuss how we can deliver this program for your organization.

The Public-Private Partnerships (P3) have great potential for addressing the infrastructure gap present in every country. However, these arrangements are easily misunderstood and fraught with challenges related to their financing, legal structure, management, and allocation of risk. A thorough understanding of these concepts and their applications is necessary for improvements in the access to, and effectiveness of, the crucial services that these assets provide.

The Foundation level is the first level of the Certified PPP Professional (CP3P) program, promoted by the World Bank and other multilateral development banks, and managed by APMG International. According to the development banks and APMG International, “CP3P is the definitive credential to demonstrate to your peers that your abilities are aligned with international PPP good practice.”

The Foundation level aims to standardize knowledge of the PPP process and terminology. The Foundation certification is a pre-requisite for the two Practitioner level certification in the APMG’s PPP Certification Program.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of different project structures
  • Understand stakeholder rights and responsibilities in project finance
  • Choose between different types of projects
  • Maximize positive outcomes for your project
  • Obtain the APMG’s PPP Foundation Level Certificate with a passing exam score
