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.
