Report to Governor & General Assembly due Dec. 1, 2011 (Chapters 640 & 641, Acts of 2010).

The Joint Legislative and Executive Commission on Oversight of Public-Private Partnerships was authorized June 1, 2010 (Chapters 640 & 641, Acts of 2010). A public-private partnership is defined as a sale or lease agreement between a unit of State government and a private entity in which the private entity assumes control of operating and maintaining an existing State facility. In such an agreement, the private entity may construct, reconstruct, finance, or operate a State facility or a facility for State use, and collect fees, rents, or tolls for the use of the facility.

The Commission charge is to assess how public-private partnerships, including the Army Enhanced Use Lease Program, are overseen and used in other states. Then, the Commission will evaluate certain statutory definitions applying to public-private partnerships to determine whether the definitions need to be amended. Thereafter, the Commission is to recommend how best to carry out legislative monitoring of public-private partnerships, and within what policy parameters such partnerships should be negotiated.

Authorization for the Commission ends June 30, 2012.
