Intended for those who are involved in the development or implementation of PPP Frameworks, or the initiation and preparation of PPP projects, mostly public sector officials, practitioners and their advisors or consultants.

PPP Or Not?

Not all projects can or should be delivered under the PPP delivery model. Identifying this will require an understanding of the main elements of a PPP including:

  • Overview of PPP Process Cycle
  • What is and what is not PPP
  • Types of PPP and Terminology Issues
  • Where are PPPs used
  • Typical basic structure of a PPP Project
  • Motivations for using PPPs
  • How a PPP Project is Financed
  • Developing A PPP Project

    Project development requires the tools and skills necessary for structuring and drafting tender and contract documents, awarding a contract and developing an efficacious delivery strategy.

  • Initial Project Assessment
  • Corporate Structuring
  • Project Agreements
  • Financial Structuring
  • Pre-Bid Analysis
  • Bid Preparation
  • Implementing A PPP Project

    Project Agreements can be complex and very detailed. Without the proper knowledge and understanding of these contracts it can lead to disrupted relationships between parties and disputes throughout the term of the agreement.

    Project sponsors need to mitigate and overcome the problems associated with the implementation of Project Agreements to ensure success throughout the project lifecycle.
