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&...

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...

Main Findings & Recommendations
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.

However, many projects that o...

Since 2011, PPIAF has assisted the Government of Timor-Leste (GoTL) to attract private-sector investment in the country’s greenfield container-port terminal in Tibar Bay, outside the capital city, Dili. With this assistance, the government identified this as a priority public-private partnership (PPP) project in 2011, then spent the next five years developing it, while also building its own institutional capacity. In June 2016, the government signed a 30-year, $490-million concession...
