AIAI Applauds Texas for Establishing a P3 Center of Excellence


Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 2475 into law on June 19, 2015, establishing the Center for Alternative Finance and Procurement, a Texas P3 Center for Excellence. The law will go into effect September 1. Rodney L. Moss, Senior Vice President and Regional Managing Director, Aon Risk Services and Chair of AIAI´s Law and Legislation Committee, was called upon to provide testimony to the Texas State Legislature. Moss was instrumental in the creation of the Center of Excellence and shared his broad perspective on why such a Center is an important consultative service to facilitate success in a state´s P3 program.

The Texas Center for Alternative Finance and Procurement will include a select group of alternative finance professionals with P3 experience, established for the purpose of assisting public sector entities in meeting public infrastructure needs through public-private partnerships.

A consortium of AIAI members joined the Texas Infrastructure Council (TIC) and other industry leaders at a stakeholders meeting in effort to put the Center into effect. Drawing upon the expertise from public and private sector leaders, the Center of Excellence will encompass best practices implemented around the country in order to provide a successful platform for the Center and subsequent program development.
