Screening for P3 Viability

All federal infrastructure projects creating assets with a life span of at least 20 years, and having capital costs of $100 million or more, are subject to a P3 Screen to determine whether the project could be suitably procured as a P3. This new requirement was introduced in Budget 2011 as part of the Government of Canada’s commitment to to supporting P3 public infrastructure opportunities that deliver maximum value for Canadians, stimulate the economy, create jobs and support long-term prosperity.

When projects are found to demonstrate P3 potential, the procuring department will be required to develop a P3 proposal among possible procurement options.

PPP Canada has a mandate to work with federal departments and agencies to assess these opportunities and has developed tools to support federal clients in the P3 procurement of their capital infrastructure projects, as well as to promote consistency and comparability of approach across federal P3 projects.
