PERFORMANCE AND QUALITY INDICATOR DATA AVAILABILITY FOR P3 PROJECTS

Public Private Partnerships (P3’s) are a relatively new project delivery method. In reaction to the increased attention to this delivery method, the Federal Highway Administration has begun to enhance its existing P3-VALUE toolkit, an educational toolkit which demonstrates the potential benefits of utilizing a Public Private Partnership over a traditional method like Design Bid Build for transportation projects. The toolkit utilizes assumptions about P3 project characteristics to build the scenarios for its analyses. Unfortunately, there is a significant lack of data which would serve to justify assumptions made about improved P3 quality performances. Furthermore, there is a basic lack of knowledge regarding what data is even available to make certain assumptions. The intent of this thesis is to identify what data can be collected, what data can be shared, and to determine what data can be expected to be reliably available, and not subject to proprietary rights, for future analysis regarding the improved P3 quality performance.
