Description: 

Many organizations have used public-private partnerships (P3) agreements successfully to gain access to capital, develop capital assets, deliver services more efficiently, or provide large infusions of cash to help fund other organizational priorities. However, P3 agreements also contain varying degrees of risk, and some organizations have pursued projects that have been controversial and exposed their governments to fiscal and/or political fallout when proper due diligence did not occur. This session will feature GFOA resources for approaching and entering into P3 agreements. Speakers will also discuss lessons learned from past P3 projects.
