Public-Private Partnership (P3) Infrastructure Oversight Commission

About the P3 Commission

Public-private partnerships allow for the sharing of resources to finance, design, build, operate, and maintain transportation infrastructure projects and are especially effective when limited financial resources are available.

In 2016 the New Hampshire Legislature passed Senate Bill 549, establishing a Public-Private Partnership Infrastructure Oversight Commission (RSA 228:109-115). This Commission shall consider and recommend to the Commissioner of Transportation projects that may be suitable for delivery using design-build-finance-operate-maintain or design-build-operate-maintain services. The Commission shall also act as an advisory board during the execution of a public-private partnership project, supporting the Department in the development of a request for proposals and in the preparation of agreements for public-private partnership projects.

The duties of the Commission state that a process for the submission and evaluation of public-private partnership projects must be established, for both projects proposed by the Department of Transportation (solicited proposals), and by other entities (non-solicited proposals).


The P3 Commission Regular Meeting is scheduled for March 29, 2019, at 10 am, Rooms 206-208, Legislative Office Building, 33 North State Street, Concord, NH.
