VAP3 Reorganization Won’t Affect I-66 Procurement

Virginia DOT assumed control of the Virginia Office of Public-Private Partnerships (VAP3) in mid-June, a move that reverses the previous administration’s aim to create an independent agency in the governor’s office to procure P3 and design-build projects outside of the state highway bureaucracy.

The most immediate effect of the organizational change is to transfer control of the I-66 DBFOM procurement to VDOT. Senior VDOT personnel have been closely involved in I-66 decision-making from the start, says a source, so the organizational changes to VAP3 won’t have any impact on the procurement of the $2.1-billion managed lanes project.
