Public Private Partnership
Objectives and Scopes:
Amidst mounting global pressures for more effective and efficient forms of PPP, specific current needs were identified and presented in the CIB PPP Research Roadmap. This presents as main research themes: Financing and financial models and structures, Risk allocation and Management; Transparency and Accountability including Regulatory and Institutional frameworks; Public Policy and Private/Public Sector behaviors; PPP Project Evaluation; Contractual structure; and PPP Performance Indicators.
New innovations and novel approaches are being developed in the formulation and implementation of PPP around the world. This calls for a new or additional research agenda for PPP, in addition to the roadmap already produced.
The scope or the Commission is informed by the description of Public-Private-Partnerships (PPP) as joint ventures, in which a private consortium and public or governmental bodies cooperate; each applying its strengths to develop a project to deliver public services more quickly, more efficiently and with better value for money. Consequently, the Working Group will facilitate research forum for academics, practitioners and experts in the field at international, national and regional levels.
The Commission has as objectives to:
• address PPP at an international level, by expanding the established global forum, to facilitate exchange and synthesis of research identifying new and emerging international practices in PPP in facilities and infrastructure development
• expand and further develop the thriving international research and practice community within this PPP field by proactively bringing together academics, practitioners and experts in the field to collaborate on distinct scholarly tasks, apart from targeting meaningful developments in PPP knowledge and practice
• stimulate the translation of academic research results in PPP into industry-relevant and immediately applicable knowledge
• promote the dissemination of information and research output from PPP research through workshops, seminars, conference proceedings and social media
• expand the academic and professional core research competencies in PPP.
Current Work Programme:
The Commission will facilitate the research forum for academics, practitioners and experts in the field at international, national and regional levels through meetings and publications.
