Laws and Regulations



OP3’s Rules and Guidelines and Procedures took effect upon publication in the D.C. Register on October 21, 2016.  The Rules implement the P3 Act and outline the process for the development, solicitation, evaluation, award, delivery, and oversight of solicited and unsolicited P3 projects in the District.  A more user-friendly version of the Rules, with additional non-binding guidance is provided in the Guidelines and Procedures. 

The Rules and Guidelines were developed through a transparent and collaborative process that began with the publication of draft versions of those documents on April 29, 2016.  

The 30-day comment period for the draft Rules and Guidelines closed on May 30, 2016.  OP3 appreciates all of the helpful feedback that was provided, which is available for review below.  OP3 incorporated many of the ideas that were submitted into a revised version of the Rules, which was submitted to the D.C. Council on June 20, 2016.  

Following a recent hearing (watch the video here), the Council approved OP3’s Procurement Rules on October 11, 2016.  The rules and guidelines will take effect upon publication in the D.C. Register, which will occur in the coming weeks.  OP3 can then launch projects and will be open to accept unsolicited proposals after a 30-day period during which we encourage potential proposers to meet with us first.  Please sign-up for OP3’s newsletter to get updates on these important milestones.
