Procurement - PPEA-PPTA
The Public-Private Transportation Act of 1995 (Va. Code §§ 33.2-1800 et seq.) ("PPTA") and the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (Va. Code §§ 56-575.1, et seq.) ("PPEA"), grant responsible public entities the authority to create public-private partnerships for the development of a wide range of projects for public use if the public entity determines: (i) that there is a need for the facility or project; (ii) that the estimated cost of the facility of project is reasonable in relation to similar facilities of projects; (iii) that the public-private partnership plans will result in the timely development or operation of the project and, in the case of transportation facilities, the  more efficient operation of a transportation facility; and, (iv) in the case of transportation facilities, that the proposed development and/or operation of the facility of facilities and the proposed interconnection with existing transportation facilities are reasonable and will address the needs identified in an appropriate state, regional, or local transportation plan by improving safety, reducing congestion, increasing capacity, and/or enhancing economic efficiency.

While substantial private sector involvement is encouraged, qualifying facilities must be devoted primarily to public use.  Individually negotiated interim or comprehensive agreements between a private entity and the Town will define the respective rights and obligations of the Town and the private entity.

At their September 3, 2020 Special Meeting, the Cape Charles Town Council adopted the Town of Cape Charles Combined Guidelines for the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002, as revised, and Public-Private Transportation Act of 1995, as revised.
