The Virginia Office of Public-Private Partnerships (VAP3) utilizes the most current version, 2012 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines (Manual), to explain our project delivery framework to identify, evaluate, develop and deliver public-private partnership (P3’s) projects in Virginia. The Manual augments the Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA) of 1995, as amended.
On May 14, 2014, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) Resolution requested the VAP3 to review and update the Manual for 2014. This includes enhancing the PPTA program and project transparency, increasing public involvement, opportunities for increased briefings and additional involvement of the CTB, and increased competitiveness in the P3 procurement.
The recent Request for Comment (RFC) document generated over 100 comments and suggestions between July 21 and August 19, from a variety of individuals, advocacy groups, small businesses, public officials and industry groups. Many of the comments and feedback have been incorporated in the Draft 2014 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines to enhance the overall comprehensive nature of the document.
The Draft 2014 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines was released on Sept. 16, 2014, for public comment. NEW!
Public feedback and suggestions will be welcomed throughout the revision process and can be submitted via email at this address: 2014PPTAdraft@p3.virginia.gov. Comments, feedback and suggestions can be submitted via surface mail to the contact information below.The opportunity for the submission of comments on the Draft 2014 Virginia PPTA Implementation Manual and Guidelines will extend until November 1, 2014.
The VAP3 also encourages public comments at the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) meeting on October 15, 2014 at the VDOT Auditorium in Richmond, Virginia.
