Past Session: 
The Financing and Management of Public Infrastructure

Seminar by Professor Robert Inman

The Trump Administration’s $1.5 billion infrastructure plan raises important questions as to how future infrastructure projects should be funded and managed. This seminar considered the options for public vs. private financing, including a discussion of the strengths and limitations of public-private partnerships and infrastructure banks. It also will examine the roles that federal, state, and local governments should have with respect to efficient project management.
