AIAI’s P3 Panel at the recent COMTO event featured Anthony Robinson, Capitol Region Minority Supplier Development Council, Barbara Armand, Armand Corp., Angela Berry Roberson of Ferrovial, Joanne Brooks, Surety and Fidelity Association of America and E Smith Legacy’s Vernon Marrow.
Panelists shared their insights and experiences with engaging local communities to develop and deliver infrastructure through public-private partnerships. The conversation included local & regional job growth, private investment opportunities, how to get engaged in the P3 procurement process, and the benefits of doing so for the public agency owner. Panelists shared expectations of partners, how businesses can leverage industry and public agency relationships, and how to assess those opportunities.
