Navigating Unsolicited Proposals

The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP), EllisDon and and AECOM invite you to join us for an in-person event on Navigating Unsolicited Proposals, taking place in Edmonton on Thursday, October 14.

This in-person session will discuss the relatively new frameworks in Alberta and Ontario designed to encourage the growth of ideas and the handling of private sector proposals to deliver critical infrastructure.

What pitfalls should companies avoid in their approach to government? What jurisdictions seem to have the best approach? And how successful have these frameworks been to date in attracting ideas?

In particular, the group will take a deep dive into how — and why — the private sector is looking at unsolicited proposals to promote infrastructure projects that do not cleanly fit into existing procurement frameworks and how Alberta's Unsolicited Proposal Guidelines and Framework addresses many of the private sector concerns surrounding this approach.

The panellists are:

Joey Comeau, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President, Capital Division, EllisDon
Brad Nicpon, Partner, Real Property and Planning Group, McCarthy Tétrault LLP
Darren Sokoloski, Vice President, P3 Advisory, AECOM
Syed Zaidi, Senior Director, Partnership Development, Public Private Partnerships Office, Alberta Infrastructure
