Transportation Institute


The Transportation Institute (TI) of the NCPPP provides a forum for Council members with interests in the use of public-private partnerships for the development of transportation projects. The TI serves as a principle resource in the execution of a series of workshops being conducted under a contract with the U.S. Department of Transportation. In addition, the TI serves as the voice of NCPPP in presenting policy concepts to improve the opportunities for use of public-private partnerships at the federal, state and local levels.

Mission Statement

The mission of the NCPPP Transportation Institute is to advocate and facilitate the formation of public-private partnerships for transportation projects and service at the federal, state and local levels, where appropriate, and to raise the awareness of governments and businesses of the means by which their cooperation can cost effectively provide the public with quality goods, services and facilities. This includes the promotion of the use of innovative financing, design-build, performance contracting and other public-private partnership tools, to encourage the broadest acceptance of the use of PPPs, through improvements to the legislative and regulatory framework involved in the development of transportation projects and services.
