Industry feedback is being sought on its plans to use a P3 to deliver its campus utility system, including future expansion and decarbonization requirements.
The university envisions a concessionaire to:
operate and maintain the existing system
design, build, finance, operate and maintain a defined set of expansion and resiliency projects
finance and implement energy conservation measures (ECMs) to meet certain demand-reduction targets, and
support the university with planning, financing and implementing longer term decarbonization technologies
Under the RFI, the university is seeking industry feedback on procurement approach, commercial structure and technical scope, and will make decisions regarding whether to move forward with a formal P3 procurement process based on responses.
Interested parties have until June 5, 2023 to respond to the RFI, which can be accessed by contacting Daniel Vire: Daniel.Vire@vanderbilt.edu
