Public-Private Partnerships

Public-private partnerships (PPPs), the construction and upgrading of public-sector infrastructure facilities on the basis of private-enterprise financing, has developed in the past few years into a genuine procurement alternative for public authorities in North America. It is a fact that, without the PPP model, many projects would not put out to tender because they could not be financed with public funds. PPP makes it possible to tackle such projects with the help of private capital. Public-private partnerships thus represent a way of overcoming the investment backlog in the public sector. They offer the opportunity of initiating a process of consolidation and modernization in the field of public administration which in the long run eases the strain on public sector budgets.
