Oregon State Treasury has launched an RFP for a consultant to devise a strategic plan for a West Coast infrastructure exchange, according to the RFP.
The exchange is being set up to help coordinate projects and cooperation among public pension plan investors, governors and state treasurers in Oregon, Washington and California, according to the RFP. The strategic plan would include an analysis of actions that would encourage private-public partnerships for domestic infrastructure and would help foster the market for domestic infrastructure investment.
Responses are due March 16 with a selection expected to be made March 28. The RFP is available on the Treasury's website.
James Sinks, spokesman for Oregon Treasurer Ted Wheeler, could not be reached for comment by press time.
