Government is considering its options for the design, construction, finance and infrastructure maintenance of the QEII redevelopment project, including province-led and private sector-led approaches.

A request for supplier qualifications for public-private partnership (P3) advisory services was issued today, Jan. 25.

"We have said all along we will consider all delivery options to see what's best financially and operationally," said Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Geoff MacLellan.

"We are committed to moving this project forward. While no decisions have been made to use the public-private partnership approach, it's our responsibility to look at all reasonable funding and delivery options."

The advisory services will assess the P3 delivery services option through a business case analysis and recommend an approach that is in the best interest of Nova Scotians.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 28. Details of the request for proposals are available at
