11 Example of Performance Criteria 1 Asset: Vegetation Outcome: Healthy Growing, Neat appearance, Acceptable coverage, Proper sight distance Target: 90% Tolerance and criteria: < 10% of mowable area to exceed 12” in height; All sight distances are clear; Neat / trimmed around guardrail, headwalls, paved ditches, signs; No cut less than 4” in height Timeliness: Vegetation affecting sight distance presenting a safety hazard shall be removed within 24 hours of notification or discovery

12 Example of Performance Criteria 2 Asset: Landscaping, Wildflowers, Beds, Bulb Beds, Ornamental Shrub Beds Outcome: Neat, Attractive, Growing Target: 90% Tolerance and criteria: < 10% of bed contains weeds; <10% of bed not growing

13 Example of Performance Criteria 3 Asset: Illegal signs / structures Outcome: Right-of-way free of illegal signs or structures Target: 100% Tolerance and criteria: No illegal signs on the right-of-way; No illegal structures on the right-of- way Timeliness Requirement: Removal of sign within 24 hours

14 Example of Performance Criteria 4 Asset: Concrete Barriers Outcome: Safe; Structurally sound Target: 90% Tolerance and criteria: Free of vegetation; 90% free of obstruction Timeliness Requirement: Damaged or misaligned barriers due to accidents/incidents shall be mitigated immediately upon notification or discovery or before accident scene is cleared; Repair to barriers shall be completed within 10 days of notification or discovery

15 Example of Performance Criteria 5 Asset: Asphalt surface Outcome: Safe, Durable, Smooth Target: 95% Tolerance and criteria: No potholes; Patches < 1/4” higher or lower than surrounding pavement; No pavement obstructions that present a safety hazard Timeliness Requirement: Temporary repairs to potholes 6” x 6” x 1 ½” deep or larger shall be repaired immediately upon notification or discovery; All others within 2 days of notification or discovery; Permanent repairs to potholes/ pavement failures shall be completed within 30 days of notification or discovery during seasons when asphalt plants are operating or within 30 days of asphalt plants opening for the season; Pavement obstructions that present a safety hazard shall be mitigated immediately

16 Example of Performance Criteria 6 Asset: Concrete surface Outcome: Safe, Durable, Smooth Target: 95% Tolerance and criteria: No potholes; 1/2” wide; 1” deep; < 25% of joint material missing; No grass growing in joint; No pavement obstructions that present a safety hazard Timeliness Requirement: Temporary repairs to potholes 6” x 6” x 1 ½” deep or larger shall be repaired immediately upon notification. All others within 2 days; Permanent repairs to potholes/ pavement failures shall be completed within 30 days of notification; Pavement obstructions that present a safety hazard shall be mitigated immediately

17 Withholding for Nonperformance The Department will assess a nonperformance withholding equal to 1% of the annual contract value for each point below a maintenance rating of 90 for each Asset Group (roadway & shoulders, roadside, traffic services, drainage, and bridge). The Department will assess an additional nonperformance withholding equal to.50% of the cumulative amount for each point below 70 on any Asset item

19 An Example of Legal Framework: Commonwealth of Virginia, USA The Public-Private Transportation Act of 1995 is the legislative framework enabling the Commonwealth of Virginia to enter into agreements authorizing private entities to acquire, construct, improve, maintain, and/or operate qualifying transportation facilities ces/PPTA-overview.pdf

20 Performance Based Contracts for Dredging – a Form of PPP Also known as draught guarantee contracts The contractor bears sedimentation risks over longer periods and is paid for services with monthly fixed amounts (or alternative financing such as toll – then a concession) Most ports and waterways have carried out maintenance dredging by two types of contract: Dredging paid by volume, or Charter contracts Before: directly by the government

21 Where to Apply Performance Based Contracts for Dredging? Where a stable level of policy is to be expected Where sedimentation can be evaluated within reasonable assumptions of risk Where other risks are covered with reasonable contractual limits (for example, extreme weather conditions) Sufficient volume to allow competitive bidding

22 Example of Performance Based Contract (PBC) for Dredging BAHIA BLANCA, Argentina A 5-year PBC for maintenance dredging Phase 1: Capital dredging; Opening Volume preset at 1 million m3; when real opening volume is measured the contract value was adjusted accordingly Phase 2: Maintenance dredging during remained of 5-year period The bid price was comprised of 60 equal monthly payments, plus the initial dredging

23 From Performance Based Contract to Concession – An Example PBC: The contractor bears sedimentation risks over longer periods and is paid for services with monthly fixed amounts Concession: In addition to sedimentation risks, the contractor also bears demand risks, as payments are made by the users directly to the concessionaire

24 Example of Concession for Dredging Hidrovia Waterway Concession, Argentina Concession contract for 18 years: 1995 – 2013 Rio Parana and Rio de la Plata from Santa Fe to the Atlantic Ocean Mainly for oceangoing traffic, but also river barges use the waterway 800 km of main waterway for Argentine exports (> 80% of export)

25 Hidrovia Waterway Concession Risk of sedimentation and traffic born by the concessionaire The works include: Capital dredging and installation of buoys in ; Deepening works from 9.8 m 10.4 m navigation channel; 800 km maintenance dredging – about 22 million m3/year; Maintenance of the buoys and beacons; Toll system Contract clause includes guaranteed depths and safety all year round, 24 hours per day

26 Hidrovia Waterway Concession Tolls: paid by all commercial vessels per tonnage (NRT) and used stretch Toll level is revised on regular basis with state to find equilibrium between costs and revenues End costs for typical users: about 1 USD/ton of grain exported; 16 USD/TEU Concessionaire: Jan De Nul Group (DJN)

27 Hidrovia Waterway Concession

28 How can the goals of a complex PPP project be achieved? Careful selection of the project Due consideration of economic, financial, social, and environment aspects Transparent, competitive selection of the concessionaire Realistic expectations, including deadlines A dedicated and well prepared team PPP agreement satisfactory to stakeholders, including a fair distribution of risks
