2008 Open House

Why is the project being done as Public Private Partnership (P3/DBFM)?

  • A Design Build Finance and Maintain (DBFM) model for capital projects provides extended lifecycle benefits compared to projects that are delivered using conventional methods which include
  1. Transfer of upfront financing costs
  2. Overall project cost certainty
  3. Transfer of risk to the private sector and
  4. Transfer of maintenance cost for the term of the contract
  • City Council approved the procurement process for the project to be DBFM model
  • DBFM has two key stages
  1. A Request for Qualification (RFQ) followed by
  2. A Request for Proposal (RFP)
