Three reasons to advertise in Public Works Financing

√ PWF is the most respected newsletter  in the industry

Bill Reinhardt was given the industry’s first-ever “Legacy Award” for lifetime achievement by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association in 2013.

“For 25 years Reinhardt’s reporting has earned him a reputation as an objective, unbiased interpreter of complex project delivery methods, making his publication an indispensable chronicle for anyone involved in P3s,” ARTBA wrote on its blog.


Public Works Financing is a must-read for everyone in transportation and infrastructure. Bill Reinhardt is one of the leading voices on transportation policy.”
Rep. John K. Delaney (D-MD)

“PWF is the #1, must-read publication in our industry.”
> Richard Fierce, Sr. VP, Fluor Corp.

“A lot of magazines and newsletters have come and gone from my brief case over the years, but PWF remains a consistent must-read.  Thanks for the great info and leadership in showing how important P3’s are to public infrastructure.”
> Clifford Eby, 
President, Transportation
Parsons Brinckerhoff

PWF is “the journal of record for our industry.”
> David Seltzer, Principal, Mercator LLC

√  PWF supports the PPP industry’s education efforts

PWF sponsors six “PPP Breakfast Club” briefings annually in New York City to bring together the leaders of the industry for high-level discussions of market changes.

At its own expense, PWF organizes, sponsors and webcasts “town-gown” discussions among the industry’s leading academics and P3 practitioners—state infrastructure agencies, developers, investors, rating agencies and advisors—to build closer relationships in order to advance use of the PPP model in the U.S.

We email complimentary copies of our monthly newsletter to:

  • The governors and staff of the National Governors Association’s transportation committee
  • all state transportation secretaries
  • the chairs of all state legislative committees overseeing transportation issues
  • U.S. congressional committee staffers
  • 50 big-city mayors and their chiefs of staff
  • all students, upon request

Our website ( contains an extensive, free library of PPP market data, academic papers, government reports, congressional testimony and case studies covering transportation, water and social infrastructure markets.

For advertisers, subscribers and researchers, we provide detailed project reports on every major U.S. water, social infrastructure and transportation PPP financed and built in the U.S. since 1988. These are available from our International Major Projects Database, which is based on information provided to PWF by PPP developers, government sources and first-person reporting.

√  The PPP industry supports PWF

PWF is the only U.S.-owned news outlet in the PPP space. Our business philosophy for 25 years has been that a rising tide lifts all boats. We see our role as:

  1. Helping to inform public-sector leaders of the value of the PPP delivery model.
  2. Consistently meeting the industry’s demand for accurate, timely and fully objective reporting, and concise, clear writing.
  3.  Closely following project opportunities and procurement results at all levels of government.
  4. Reporting in depth on the teaming strategies, technical innovations, financial engineering and construction challenges involved in successful PPP procurements.

PPP industry leaders have responded with their strong support of PWF.  Of our current advertisers, 19 have marketed their services in PWF for over 10 years (eight of them for over 15 years and four for 20 years.) Our readership has grown every year since 1988.

Current PWF advertisers are: AIAI; Kiewit Development; Meridiam Infrastructure; Granite Construction; Herzog Contracting; Flatiron; Ferrovial Agroman; Cintra; ACS/Iridium; OHL Concessions; GlobalVia; Sacyr; Abertis; EGIS Projects; China Construction; United Water; Veolia Water; Arup; Ernst & Young; KPMG; HDR | InfraConsult; CDM Smith; AECOM; Jacobs; HNTB; Parsons Brinckerhoff; Raba Kistner; TYPSA Group  Aztec; Louis Berger Group; Lochner MMM; OR Colan; Nossaman; Hawkins Delafield; Elias Group; Osler.
