Document Number: 2014-21049
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-09-10
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) requires DOT and FHWA to develop public-private partnership (P3) transaction model contracts for the most popular type of P3s for transportation projects. Based on public input favoring an educational, rather than prescriptive, contract model, on February 6, 2014, FHWA published a draft of the Core Toll Concession Model Contract Guide (Guide) (Docket No. FHWA-2014- 0006), requesting comments by March 10, 2014. The FHWA received a total of 133 public comments regarding different aspects of the Guide and of P3s in general. With this notice, FHWA publishes a revised Guide reflecting these comments. In coming months, FHWA will publish additional draft guides for public comment: An Addendum to the Core Toll Concession Model Contract Guide that will address additional contract provisions, and an Availability Payment Concession Model Contract Guide that will cover this popular type of P3 arrangement. The revised Core Toll Concession Model Contract Guide can be found on the Docket (FHWA-2014-0006) and at the following link: http:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/ipd/pdfs/p3/ modelp3coretollconcessions.pdf.
