PPP – Planning, Governance and Procurement /

Book now

Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are an important route to the delivery of a wide range of social, economic and administrative infrastructure in many countries throughout the world, leveraging private sector expertise, resources and finance.

Senior officials charged with financing and implementing PPPs need to understand the complex issues, arrangements and oversight required to navigate through a PPP project cycle, as part of a national PPP programme that has implications for fiscal, budget and debt management.

This 1-week course will build a fundamental knowledge in PPPs and examine some pertinent issues in the effective governance and management of PPPs. Delegates will gain an appreciation of the political and business environment factors at play, and what constitutes an effective PPP framework, both central to understanding what drives and what should underpin all PPP projects. They will learn about the challenges that PPPs address, and PPP solution approaches and contract types that are central to identifying a PPP project pipeline, where screening and appraising a PPP, including ascertaining value for money and assessing climate, environmental and social factors and impact, are critical activities.

This course will also examine good practice relating to finance, risk and performance. Delegates will explore how PPPs are financed, the banks perspective on a PPP, what makes a PPP bankable and what financial instruments and arrangements may come into play when financing and re-financing a PPP. They will learn about PPP project risk and how to allocate risk between public and private parties in a well-structured PPP, and about key requirements for a sound contract management framework that sets the boundaries for the effective performance of a PPP.

This is week one of The PPP, Procurement and Contract Management Toolkit.
