Reggie Jones, chair of Fox Rothschild's Government Contracts and Procurement Practice, presented "Understanding Public Private Partnerships in Virginia" at a Virginia Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors Lunch & Learn on April 12, 2012.

In a down economy, Virginia has an infrastructure delivery system where you can either respond to a solicitation or propose your own project - Public Private Partnerships through either the Public Private Education Act (PPEA) or the Public Private Transportation Act (PPTA). This course is designed to help you understand how to partner with designers, identify projects, understand the law and negotiate the comprehensive agreement.

Virginia leads the country in the use of PPP procurement. Attendees will learn about what projects are being built using PPPs, learn how PPPs might be what keeps your business aloft, and the nuts and bolts of how to negotiate a comprehensive agreement.

Virginia is one of the few states to offer PPP model procedures. This nontraditional procurement method has multiple names: PPEA is used in Virginia and named for the Act, while PPP and P3 are both used nationwide and are the most common.
