NCSL Partners Project on Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) for TransportationThe National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Partners Project on PPPs for Transportation produced the report Public-Private Partnerships for Transportation: A Toolkit for Legislators in December 2010. The toolkit provides expert guidance, dependable counsel and a compilation of best practices to assist state legislatures as they consider whether and how to pursue PPPs in their states.
The centerpiece of the toolkit is nine principles that promote a sound public policy approach to the consideration of PPPs. Clear explanations of PPP approaches, benefits and controversies, and roles and responsibilities also are provided. As well, the appendices have a wealth of specific state legislative information and detailed instruction on PPP issues.
