California is now ready to assess P3 candidate projects. At its October 14th meeting, the California Transportation Commission approved policy guidance addressing the Commission’s role in selecting proposed P3 projects. The CTC developed the guidelines to assist Caltrans and regional transportation agencies (RTAs) as they move to develop P3 transportation projects, taking advantage of the new authority granted to them under Senate Bill X2 4, enacted in February of this year.
The enabling legislation requires the CTC to select projects nominated by Caltrans or an RTA seeking to use the P3 model. The CTC policy guidance describes the selection process, including the project report and information required to be submitted to the CTC, the CTC’s criteria for evaluating projects, and the timing and scope of the CTC’s role.
