U.S. Infrastructure Investment Gap

1,508 views

Published on

In June 2013, AECOM released a white paper titled, “Fostering a Larger Private-Sector Role in United States Infrastructure.”

The paper examines the extent to which the nation’s infrastructure assets need urgent attention and/or repair as well as innovative funding mechanisms that can help address those needs, especially public-private partnerships (PPPs). AECOM supports the idea that PPPs can provide an important avenue for advancing infrastructure projects and, consequently, improving the country’s long-term economic growth, competitiveness and quality of life.
