INFRASTRUCTURE FELLOWS PROGRAM
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The DC Office of Public-Private Partnerships (OP3) is charged with building collaborations between the private sector and DC government to complete major infrastructure projects and other programs through long-term, performance-based procurements commonly referred to as public-private partnerships, or P3s. Each semester, OP3 selects several talented and energetic students to join us in this effort as Infrastructure Fellows and to learn more about this emerging field in the process.
