The City of Miami has recently adopted a public-private partnership (“P3?) ordinance. The new City ordinance, combined with the recently passed Florida state P3 legislation, and Miami-Dade County P3 resolution, continue to endorse the usage of public-private partnership as a procurement method for public projects in South Florida. Such timely legislative activity facilitate the financing of the expansion and transportation projects of our community, such as the PortMiami Tunnel project, the future Bay Link, new rail connections and street transportation in Miami Beach.

In addition to the provisions governing the public-private partnership process, the adoption of the “unsolicited proposal” provisions shows great vision on the part of the City. The adoption opens the door to technologies and innovations being developed in the private sector, and allow the private sector to educate government agencies of available opportunities that improve the quality of life for our community.
