The New Wave of Public-Private Partnership in Higher Education

We are seeing a shift in alternative procurement delivery models and projects adapting to and addressing climate change concerns. US Higher Education institutions are increasingly looking at P3, alternative delivery, or privatization project procurement models to help them reduce their carbon footprint by introducing renewable power and energy efficiency innovations, as well as to address deferred maintenance issues relating to their critical core utility infrastructure.

Ohio State University and Duquesne University have both closed transactions over the past few years, with University of Iowa’s project expected to close soon. Other procurements at various stages of progress include those being sought by CalState Fresno, Dartmouth College and University of Idaho, with other institutions rumored to be considering their own projects.

Our panel discussion will feature experts with experience in various aspects of these procurements, who will tackle subjects such as: P3/privatization delivery models for universities; motivations of the various private sector participants in these projects, compare & contrast of the scope and structural features of various projects seen so far; credit considerations related to these projects, and role innovation has to play in addressing climate change.

Registration opens at 5.00pm

Speakers include:
• Lawren Green (Moderator), Senior Vice President, Kiewit Development Company
• Dan Kelley, Senior Vice President, Enwave Energy
• Scott Potter, Senior Director, Ohio State University
• Chris Joassin, Director, Fitch Ratings
