AECOM publishes “Fostering a Larger Private-Sector Role in United States Infrastructure” white paper

07:00 EDT Wednesday, June 26, 2013

LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that it has released a white paper titled, “Fostering a Larger Private-Sector Role in United States Infrastructure.”

The paper examines the extent to which the nation's infrastructure assets need urgent attention and/or repair as well as innovative funding mechanisms that can help address those needs, especially public-private partnerships (PPPs). AECOM supports the idea that PPPs can provide an important avenue for advancing infrastructure projects and, consequently, improving the country's long-term economic growth, competitiveness and quality of life.

AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio shared the white paper with members of a Senate Democratic Caucus during a policy briefing on infrastructure in Washington, D.C., last week.

The paper is available on AECOM's website at www.aecom.com/usinfrastructure, and an executive summary can be found at www.aecom.com/usinfrastructureexecutivesummary.
