Structuring Private-Sector Participation (PSP) Contracts for Small Scale Water Projects

Author: Victoria Rigby Delmon

The purpose of this toolkit is to provide guidance to water authorities who intend to contract private operators and sector professionals assisting such authorities, on how to structure a contract and bidding documents for private sector participation (“PSP contract”) in small scale water projects. The toolkit focuses on small scale water schemes typically serving a settlement with a population from 1,000 to 10,000—with sufficient density to warrant a network solution, but which do not generate enough scale for integration in a centralized network management.
