    47. 47. New Approach: Advantages of (AFP)  Increased capacity to bring projects to market  Transfer of risk • Appropriate risks transferred to private sector to ensure “on time, on budget” delivery and offer value for money • Design, construction, cost escalation, schedule delays, operations, maintenance, lifecycle, financial risk  Cost certainty • Optimal cost combination: combines capital, maintenance and life cycle costs • Integration of design and construction 47
    48. 48. New Approach: Roles and Responsibilities in the Design Build Finance Maintain model Metrolinx Role: Design Finance  Overall scope (inclusion of maintenance, operations, etc.)  Project-Specific Output Specifications (with Consultant team)  Real Estate Acquisition (with City of Toronto)  Project Budget  With Infrastructure Ontario run a competitive procurement process; select the winning contractor Maintain  Testing & Commissioning (with Toronto Transit Commission)  Safety Certification and Project Acceptance Build  Oversee Construction Phase  Quality Assurance TTC to operate  Integrated with existing TTC system 48
