Join us for a two-part webinar series describing the benefits of Public-Private Partnerships (P3s), and how Arkansas’s new P3 legislation allows state-supported entities to monetize assets, transfer risk, and address infrastructure renewal priorities.
In 2017, the Arkansas General Assembly passed the Partnership for Public Facilities and Infrastructure Act (“PPFIA”). PPFIA allows state agencies to partner with private entities on capital improvement projects that benefit the agency and the general public.
Commonly called a Public-Private Partnership (P3), this project procurement method is an innovative way to make the operation of a state agency or higher education institution more efficient and economically viable in these uncertain times. Read more about the Foundations of P3 in Arkansas here.
