P3Connect is about where we are going through the eyes of the thought leaders who will get us there.
Welcome to P3Connect, The What’s Next P3 Event.
Focus on the Local P3 Experience — Miami-Dade County and Its Pipeline
Officials from our host community, Miami-Dade County, will talk about how public-private partnerships can help address its infrastructure needs and update us on its project pipeline.
Moderator: Diana Gonzalez (DMG Consulting Services, Inc.)
The Trump Administration’s infrastructure initiative includes proposals for incentivizing non-federal investment, and numerous senior administration officials have promoted the concept of “infrastructure recycling,” drawing in part from experience in Australia. The concept, in summary, is to encourage federal, state and local agencies to engage in privatization or public-private partnership transactions to monetize existing infrastructure assets in order to raise funds for other infrastructure investments.
Moderator: Timothy Weston (K&L Gates)
With projects at airports in Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York, Denver and San Juan, P3s and related solutions are budding in the airport space. This panel will examine the transactions (completed and proposed), and discuss how — apart from every P3 deal being unique — they arrived at the project structures based upon the asset being an airport.
Moderator: Barney Allison (Nossaman)
Alternative Financing Structures for Distributed Energy Generation
Panelists will talk about their projects, the procurement process and benefits of different approaches. Discussion also will cover risk allocation and challenges, typical service agreement contract structures, and accounting considerations.
Moderator: Mark White (Bostonia Partners)
Smaller P3 Projects: Approval Process, Public Funding and Transactional Issues
It is no secret that smaller P3 projects (ranging from of $5 million to $100 million) are difficult to put together. This panel will break down the issues inherent to these projects by addressing the key components of the life cycle of a P3 project. From approval processes, focusing on the different procurement tools available to municipalities and other local governmental agencies, as well as the “public relations” component, the public funding tools that are available to match and or meet private financing opportunities, and address the transactional issues that would help structure a P3 project at a smaller scale.
Moderator: Jorge Montecinos (Ikons, Guasch & Associates, Corp.)
This session will explore transit P3s—including how these projects may differ from other transportation P3s—as well as FTA’s recent PIPP rule, federal assistance programs, projects challenges, lessons learned, and related topics.

Integrated Water: The Opportunities and Challenges
This session opens with an introduction to what we mean by “Integrated Water” and will include presentations of examples of how a coordinated approach can yield real environmental results at an affordable cost. The panel of experts will engage in a wide-ranging dialogue around the issues that have proven to be barriers to achieving success and how these barriers might be overcome. The theme of holistic investment and management actions at the watershed level that respect and support the value of natural resources in the watershed will frame the panel’s dialogue.

Reducing Project Risk Through Effective Use of Risk Transfer, Performance Guarantees, Surety and Insurance
This session will focus on some of the implications of appropriate risk allocation, risk minimization, insurance, performance guarantees and surety. The intent is to provide attendees with actual examples of what works and what doesn’t work in terms of allocating risk in the most cost-effective manner. This will include the appropriate use of insurance and surety bonds.
Moderator: Dan Knise (Ames & Gough Insurance/Risk Management Inc.)
Integrated Water: Green Infrastructure and Technology P3s

The panelists then will showcase specific P3 solutions as case studies, highlighting the value provided by these solutions and speaking to any lessons learned from the projects. The audience will be introduced to many unique green infrastructure and technology solutions being offered today in the P3 model.
Moderator: Tom Dooney (Bostonia Partners)
