Public-Private Partnership Oversight Commission (MASSDOT)

This commission was created by the legislature as part of Transportation Reform in 2009 and is responsible for reviewing and recommending public-private partnership opportunities for transportation infrastructure projects.

Who we serve

Public Private Partnerships have been used across the world as an alternative way of procuring and financing projects that would otherwise require taxpayer funding.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Massachusetts Public-Private Partnership Oversight Commission is to help in the creation of partnerships for transportation projects and services.

We also inform government and business stakeholders on how their cooperation can provide the public with much-needed affordable transportation.

This includes the development, facilitation and promotion of the use of innovative financing, design-build, and other public-private partnership tools.
