Assessing Operational PPP Portfolios
The COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impact infrastructure projects around the globe in all sectors as supply chains are disrupted, customer demand falls, and health regulations force a change in the way business is conducted. Infrastructure projects delivered through public-private partnerships (PPPs) make them more challenging to deal with because of long-term contractual commitments made between counterparties, including third-party lenders and investors.

Public-Private Partnerships cover a wide range of contractual arrangements between public authorities and private entities contributing to the private financing of public infrastructure in the broad sense. PPPs are an important tool to meet national infrastructure needs and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Such contractual arrangements, however, are complex and require strong and consistent national policies to attract investment and ensure the protection of the public interest. ...

IDENTIFYING KEY DESIGN FEATURES AND SUCCESS FACTORS FOR PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE FUNDS
One of the most common, but least written about, public policy instruments implemented by governments to encourage private finance has been the establishment of Public Infrastructure Funds (PIFs). At this point, readers may ask "what are PIFs?" One of the benefits of PIFs is that they are unique, adapted to meet specific country contexts, but conversely this can make them hard to accurately define. Put simply, they are a specific type of infrastructure financing fund that uses pu...

This World Bank report was commissioned to inform this past weekend’s G20 conversations. It underlines that lack of maintenance of infrastructure assets has real costs and repercussions on people, firms, and economic systems. Moreover, regular maintenance is an essential contributor to infrastructure resilience as countries face the impacts of climate change. We emphasize that more spending alone is insufficient, unless accompanied by new approaches in planning, costing, and deliveri...

One of the most important issues in designing a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) contract for infrastructure projects is the allocation of the project’s risks between the public and private parties. As we have discussed in the companion paper, the risk allocation is a means to give appropriate incentives for the private partner to perform according to the contract terms, thus achieving value for money. In what follows, we shall describe best practices in risk allocation, complementin...

Guidelines for the Development of a Policy for Managing Unsolicited Proposals in Infrastructure Projects
When it comes to infrastructure projects, “unsolicited proposals” (USPs) represent an alternative to the traditional project initiation method where the private sector, rather than the government, takes the leading role in identifying and developing a project. In practice, many public authorities across the world resort to USPs motivated by the perspective of solving the challenges brought by their lack of capacity to identify and develop projects. However, many projects that o...

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the delivery of public services have become a phenomenon which is spreading the globe and generating great interest. But why is a concept, barely mentioned a decade ago, now attracting such interest? Overall, the answer is that PPPs avoid the often negative effects of either exclusive public ownership and delivery of services, on the one hand, or outright privatization, on the other. In contrast, PPPs combine the best of both worlds...

In July 1999 the first edition of Standardisation of PFI Contracts (”SoPC”) was published.

Second and third editions have followed in September 2002, and April 2004, together with an Addendum in December 2005. This Version 4 updates the g...

Cuando se trata de proyectos de infraestructura, los proyectos de “Iniciativa Privada” (IP) representan una alternativa al mecanismo tradicional de iniciación de proyectos en el que el sector privado, en lugar del gobierno, asume el papel principal en la identificación y en el desarrollo de un proyecto. En la práctica, muchas autoridades públicas de todo el mundo recurren a las IPs, motivadas por la perspectiva de resolver los desafíos que plan...

The complexity of public-private partnership (PPP) transactions often means that considerable time and expense is involved in preparing and finalizing the contract. This has led many stakeholders to ask for standardized provisions in such contracts to allow for a quicker and less expensive drafting process. Given the variety of PPP transactions and legal systems, as well as the need for "tailor-made" provisions, the development of fully standardized&...
