Infrastructures are a key component to development and growth. Besides, private participation for infrastructure projects has skyrocketed since 1990.
Although these contractual arrangements appear rather efficient, they raise a certain number of difficulties all along the sequence of the contracts: from gestation, to the birth, and then the life of the contract.
A CICA Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Working Group* started its works in June 2009, with the following key concepts:
- Driving element: the economy of the Project (including a financial model)
- 3 parties must be equally beneficiaries: public authorities, private operators and users.
CICA PPP WG proposes definitions of PPPs and a typology of contracts, and identifies 3 major possible origins of PPPs failures and the related solutions based on lessons learned as for: the choice of the project, the kind of procurement, the way the contract is managed.
The objective of the CICA PPP WG is to propose a PPP handbook.
In order to avoid overlapping and increase its efficiency, CICA PPP WG brings together Experts representatives of a number of PPP Working Groups (such as EIC/FIEC, International Bar Association, etc) in addition to its own Experts.
