How the IPD Office Does Business...

Technical Assistance

By Request

The IPD Office includes experts in many aspects of program and project finance, procurement, and revenue generation who are available to provide information and assistance. The mechanism for providing technical assistance varies according to the nature of the request. For example, assistance may come directly from the expert, while at other times it may be offered through the workshops, peer exchanges, or the FHWA IPD Academy.

The IPD Office has designated Primary Technical Assistance Contacts (PTACs) to coordinate assistance for Project Finance (i.e. GARVEEs, SIBs, Section 129 Loans), Public-Private Partnerships (P3s), and Revenues. Please direct your questions to your designated PTAC. Your PTAC will coordinate with the entire team of IPD experts to provide you a response.

Critical Project Review

For projects with innovative elements that run into legislative or regulatory difficulties, the IPD Office can provide the Critical Project Review process. For such projects, the office will convene, on an ad-hoc basis, experts from throughout the Department to help move such projects forward. As with the Opportunity Project and Opportunity State initiatives, lessons learned are provided to the larger community.
