P3 Office


The Public-Private Partnership (P3) Collaboration Unit was created in 2022 through Colorado legislation via Senate Bill 22-130 to plan, design, manage, develop, operate, implement and govern the use of P3 projects for the State of Colorado within the Department of Personnel & Administration.

The P3 Collaboration Unit administers and manages all responsibility for P3 projects to include the creation of program requirements; analysis and approval or denial of the project proposals; documentation of funding and funding alternatives; due diligence requirements; reporting requirements; policies; standard operating procedures; project thresholds; and technical assistance for any approved public projects.

Featured Project: Burnham Yard

We are coordinating with the City of Denver, residents, businesses, neighborhood groups, and other key stakeholders to develop a master plan to guide the future vision of Burnham Yard. This process focuses on connectivity options, redevelopment, market value and equity, and community-centered engagement opportunities, particularly feedback from underrepresented populations.
