Work Study Session on Expedited Purified Water Program - Dual Track Procurement.

A. Receive information from other public agencies on their experiences with various project delivery methods;
B. Consider staff analysis regarding choice of either Progressive Design-Build or a Public Private Partnership delivery method; and
C. Provide staff direction on next steps for the procurement process.

A Board Work Study Session was held on September 20, 2016 on the Purified Water Program (Program) Dual Track Procurement. Staff presented both qualitative and quantitative analysis of the Progressive Design-Build (PDB) and Public-Private Partnership (P3) delivery methods and recommended the District's Program use the Progressive Design-Build delivery method. The Board made no decision at this meeting, but requested that another Work Study Session be scheduled in which representatives from other water agencies who have used or considered alternative delivery methods would share their agency's experience with such methods for their capital projects.

At this Work Study Session, representatives from the Orange County Water District and the cities of Rialto, San Jose, and Stockton will present their project or program experience with their chosen delivery methods. The Work Study presentation is provided in Attachment 1.
