The BATIC is a one-stop shop for state and local governments, public and private developers, and investors seeking to utilize innovative financing and public-private partnerships to deliver transportation projects.

Mr. Paul Baumer, from the Office of Infrastructure Finance and Innovation in the Office of the Secretary of Transportation, discussed how the BATIC is working with the maritime infrastructure and engaged in a lively discussion with meeting attendees on public-private partnership success stories.
