PROCUREMENT ISSUES AND APPROACHES
This paper discusses the public/private partnership concept, and its role in solving procurement problems. It comes to the conclusion that transportation facilities and systems have progressed to the point of being too complex to be acquired under the old time honored system of public bidding on detailed specifications with public ownership and operation/maintenance of the resultant product. New approaches which bring the involved entities together in private/public partnerships tailored to adequately address all facets of the effort, e.g., development, deployment, operation and maintenance, is essential to proper handling of these complexities.
