PPP in practice: Does PPP add value for money?

Practical experience of using private sector invention and capital to deliver public services.

More and more governments, counties and cities are turning to the private sector to design, build, finance and operate new or existing public infrastructure to improve the delivery of public services and the management of public facilities, even though they remain publicly owned.

PPP projects, especially long-term ones, can bring significant benefits to the public sector in the provision of public infrastructure or public services. The private sector undoubtedly has more practical experience and skills – especially in managing large construction and technically demanding projects or in providing specialised services. Its involvement can therefore bring greater benefits to the taxpayer than a traditional approach, especially if the private partner is incentivised to be creative, inventive and of long-term quality.

Discussion topics:

  • Upcoming PPP projects in Europe – EIB on past and future trends
  • Who are the investors and financing parties in PPPs?
  • Where does inventiveness and long-term responsibility come from?
  • Can design and construction in PPP projects be more efficient?
  • Asset ownership, payment mechanisms and asset lifecycle approach.
  • How can cities select and prepare their PPP projects?
  • How to prepare PPP projects and how to finance their preparation?

The series of panel discussions on PPP IN PRACTICE is brought to you by the Association for Infrastructure Development and the Union of Towns and Municipalities of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the investment agency CZECHINVEST. The series is part of the year-long Green, Smart, Resilient and Inclusive Cities for 2021 series.
