A Resolution to Adopt the Policy for Implementation of the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002


Topic Description:


The Commonwealth of Virginia enacted the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 in recognition of the need to accelerate the procurement of public infrastructure and governmental facilities that serve a public need and purpose.  The Act encourages public-private partnerships, which may provide innovative alternatives to enhance the delivery, cost, and financing options in acquiring, designing, constructing, and otherwise procuring infrastructure and facilities. 


As part of its mission, the Ad Hoc Joint Facilities Planning Committee (Committee) initiated the development of procedures, which are required to be adopted before a government can accept proposals submitted in accordance with the Act.  The attached procedures were based on the model procedures adopted by the Commonwealth of Virginia, and have been customized to meet the unique needs of the Fauquier County School Board and Board of Supervisors.  The procedures have been extensively reviewed by the Committee (which terminated December 31, 2003), School Board legal counsel, County Attorney, County financial advisor, and the Facilities Planning & Implementation Committee. 


The School Board adopted these procedures on March 8, 2004.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Financial Impacts Analysis:

Use of this procurement method may produce cost savings for projects on a case-by-case basis, either directly in hard dollars, or indirectly through more timely delivery or innovative alternatives.
