Pennsylvania fueling station RFQ due

EXCLUSIVE: The government of Pennsylvania is to issue a request for qualifications (RFQ) for its recently-announced fuelling stations P3 over the next few weeks, P3 Bulletin can reveal.

After Governor Tom Corbett announced the deal last week, the Pennsylvania Department of Transport (PennDOT) told P3 Bulletin that the RFQ will hit the market by "mid-November".

Following this, PennDOT is hoping to announce a shortlist of bidders by January, with a draft request for proposals to follow shortly after. A preferred bidder for the deal has also been earmarked by the summer of 2015.

Under the plans, a private partner will design, build, finance, operate and maintain the stations, with PennDOTT receiving a portion of the fuel sales revenue, with the money being returned to transit agencies to assist with future capital projects.
