PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS

It is increasingly recognized that focusing on the relationships between the public and private sector is central to realizing the promise of much of IVHS. The kinds of issues that are being increasingly raised as IVHS moves into mid-adolescence include: (1) Is IVHS a business? Which kinds of IVHS are technology-driven/infrastructure-based public services that have to be supported by taxes; versus, which ones may be market-driven/customer-or service-oriented businesses based on user charges? Where are the overlaps? (2) Are there markets? What are the demands of customers for various services and what are the delivery service concepts themselves? (3) Who will pay, to whom and how much? What are the sizes of the markets and the prices? (4) What are the benefits given services, costs, and prices? (5) Is IVHS affordable? (6) Can a high-tech service be delivered by low-tech government? (7) Is interjurisditional coordination a barrier? and (8) Can we develop systems that encourage private involvement?
