The City and County of Denver Department of Aviation operates the Denver International Airport (DEN). Utilizing a public-private-partnership (P3) delivery method, DEN set forth to develop and deliver a project to relocate and improve Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening; increase non-revenue opportunities in the Great Hall; and optimize the capacity, efficiency, flexibility, and useful life of the Jeppesen Terminal.
PMA provided strategic advice and input to the airport in developing request for qualification documents and performance metrics to solicit a P3 development team to complete this scope. PMA also developed a strategic solicitation process to select the most qualified P3 team that would deliver DEN the best value. PMA performed a qualitative risk analysis and subsequently updated the risk assessment during the final stages of the procurement process based on the respondents’ proposals. This assessment provided a comparative analysis of the proposals and a better understanding of the resources and mitigation measures needed to assure proper funding and resources required for a successful delivery and outcome.
