Outstanding Methods Kansas City, Missouri, U.S. Central Administrative Role of the Capital Improvements Management Office (CIMO) Tax Increment Financing (TIF) St. Petersburg, Russia Direct Allocation of Funds from the Investment Fund of the Russian Federation (IFRF) Innovative Legislation Political Support from the Central Government The World Bank Group
Constraints and Challenges Kansas City, Missouri, U.S. Fiscal Administration of TIF Significant risks related to future revenue forecasts and project’s over cost St. Petersburg, Russia Weakness of the legal framework High risks associated with reliance on state funding Lack of public officials’ expertise with managing PPP projects Cost assessment risks
Lessons Learned Kansas City, Missouri, U.S. An accurate estimate of project’s costs is important. Tax burden should be fairly distributed among citizens. St. Petersburg, Russia A stronger legal framework is needed. More substantial support from the state is key to successful implementation of the projects.
Recommendations Each PPP project is unique and requires an individual approach. A special centralized public entity, akin to CIMO in Kansas City, is a great way run and oversee the projects. Tax subsidies are an effective tool to attract private businesses to participate. In developing countries, such organizations as the World Bank Group or the United Nations Development Programme should be utilized as a great source of advice and expertise.
