Guideline for the Coordination of Utility Relocations on PPP Projects (2021)

This is our last in the series of looking at TAC-PUMS publications. It may be the last, but it is also the most anticipated. Completed in late 2020, we are anticipating publication any day now by TAC. The goal is to have it as a free download from the TAC website.

It is written in the same manor as the original Guideline for Design-Bid-Build projects, with a FLOW Chart and written component. But for anyone who has worked on PPP’s knows, they are unique and have their own sets of rules and challenges.

The PPP guideline looks at all aspects of the project from Planning Phase to RFP Documentation Preparation Phase to In-Market Design Phase to Project Implementation Phase to Post Construction Phase.

If you are a government agency looking to procure a PPP project, or currently procuring a PPP this is a must-read document.   If you are a consultant or contractor working on a PPP this will help you layout your Utility Strategy for the whole job.

If you are interested in getting a copy of the new PPP Guideline it will soon be available on the TAC website, however in the meantime if you want to learn more you can e-mail me at
