In a rapidly changing environment, finance teams need to
devote more time and energy to thinking about the future. As resources become
scarce and uncertainty increases, business officers are increasingly exploring
public-private partnerships as alternative financial structures to fund capital
projects. The University of Idaho implemented a thoughtful financial planning
approach to analyze a potential asset monetization while considering the
impacts of cost proposals, funding sources, and alternative accounting
treatments. By considering alternative financial models and various operational
scenarios, the finance team provided key insights to stakeholders throughout
the decision-making process.
This webcast will address how the
finance team at the University of Idaho developed the team and tools necessary
to provide valuable decision support as their potential public-private partnership
project evolved. The panel will share lessons learned and common pitfalls in
evaluating similar projects, with special emphasis on how the finance team can
increase confidence in capital planning decisions. Join us to learn how
building the right team and creating a process that provides timely and
thoughtful analysis can increase confidence in evaluating alternative financing
