A growing number of developing country governments are interested in using public-private partnerships (PPPs) to provide public infrastructure assets and services. The PPP Cycle section of the PPP Knowledge Lab is set up to help them achieve their goal. Specifically, it aims to help government officials and other interested parties to answer the following questions:
- What are PPPs, and why would governments want to use them?
- What kind of policy, legal, and institutional framework need to be in place to ensure PPPs achieve their objectives efficiently and effectively?
- What is the process for designing and tendering a PPP project?
- How can a government manage the implementation of a PPP post bid?
A substantial body of knowledge on PPPs has been collected by practitioners in the public and private sectors, international institutions, and academic institutions. The PPP Cycle helps readers navigate this body of knowledge step by step, by introducing key topics on PPPs and directing readers to key references and additional information to learn more.
The information contained in the PPP Cycle primarily draws upon the PPP Reference Guide Version 2.0. jointly developed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and The World Bank Group, and funded by a grant from the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF).
