1 PPP Platform – Polish PPP Taskforce Tasks and development What makes municipal PPPs different? EPEC Workshop, Brussels, Open Days 2011

2 Presentation plan 1.Polands experience with PPP 2.PPP as an instrument for implementation of regional policy 3.PPP Platform => national PPP taskforce 4.Support by EU funds for PPP taskforce for PPP projects 5.EU grant blending with PPPs in practice

3 Polands experience with PPP Governmental PPP/concession infrastructure projects: –A1 motorway (two stretches of total 152 km, concession dated 1997, stretch I operational since 2008, stretch II since November 2011) –A2 motorway (two stretches of total 256 km, concession dated 1997, stretch I operational since 2004, stretch II since December 2011) –A4 motorway (one stretch of 60 km, concession dated 1997, operational since 1996 –New A1 and A2 motorway stretches despite strategic location in central Poland proved unsuccessful – procurement finalised but the financial closure was not reached –Further attempt to execute the A1 motorway stretch to Silesia in PPP is ready to start – decision depends on the off balance sheet confirmation of EUROSTAT

4 Polands experience with PPP Municipal PPP projects: –Wide range of projects under preparation and implementation –Monitored by several different entities - no official and reliable data available about on-going projects - two car parking projects have been succesfully executed (Poznań, operational since 2006; Kraków, operational since 2009), in only nine projects achieved financial closer – the majority of projects are of minor value) –According to different sources about 50 municipal projects have been currently in the preparatory phase

5 PPP as an instrument for implemention of regional policy Achievement of goals set out by the National Strategy for Regional Development depends on investments at an average annual level of at least 3% GDP Limited possibilities of public spending (new indicators of public debt from 2014) Growing role of private financing, loan funds, credit guarantees and other financial instruments Need to maximise economic effectiveness of public infrastructure during investment and maintenance phase - VfM National Strategy for Regional Development suggests public private partnerships as a desired instrument for investments at regional and national level

6 PPP as an instrument for implementation of regional policy Financing of projects Not all infrastructure investments are capable to be financed by the private sector without public support – need of availability payments and/or investment subventions. EU funds can not be used for availability payments but is very effective source (component) of investment subventions Legal framework is sufficient But there is lack of verified solutions and standardized procedures as well as answers to doubts and problems faced (e.g. step in rights, corporate responsibility, subcontracting, tax issues, depreciation) Lack of experience Both at the governmental and municipal level – learning by doing is the suggested solution

7 General conclusions: The story is about money –PPP is regarded as a mean for closing the funding gap for the transport infrastructure investments –PPP at municipal level is also regarded predominantly as a mean for closing the funding gap for investments Polish economy is more trustworthy and the capital is not a problem as in the past but / if not: the financial crisis very conservative (restrictive) policy of Polish public debt and budget = > almost the only interesting PPP models are these off-budget and public debt < = but for projects this means problems with bankability

8 General conclusions: –Despite a few PPP road projects no standardized procedures or guidance have been elaborated and published –Problems with life-cycle approach, project assumptions, output specification and bankable business model –Problems with procurement models and procedure –Municipalities were self-learners without government support but this has changed recently

9 Are municipal PPPs different? State projects – relatively few but of great value; motorways, national roads, railways infra and rolling stocks, HSR (5 bln EUR investmet under preparation), railway stations, airports, flood protection infra, state administration buildings, prisons, universities, clinical hospitals Big communities (major cities, aglomerations, regions) projects – relevant to state investments; regional roads, railways (less infra, mainly rolling stocks and railway stations), city transport (undergrounds, parkings, roads, bridges, (fast) trams), environment protection (seweges, water supply, wastes), energy (heating, street lighting), hospitals, schools, culture (museums, theaters, music halls), sport & recreation (swimming pools, aquaparks, recreation areas, parks, zoos

10 Are municipal PPPs different? Small communities (counties, cities, villages) - very big differences as concerns: size of projects, expenses, financial sources / instruments, political / legal risks, time perspective, knowledge, professional skills = > specially big needs in the: programming and pre-feasibility phases organisation and financing of the project preparation stage financing of the project


12 Polish PPP market – preparation of projects Source: Investment Support market reports for 2009, 2010 and IQ 2011

13 Polish PPP market - conclusions: –Many tenders have been cancelled due to lack of agreement with the private partner during the negotiation phase –There were efforts made by the authorities to reissue the tender procedure after modification of the procurement documentation but often without sufficient prior market consultation –Out of the small number of successful tenders many contracts were signed after a negotiation phase with very limited competition among private bidders which lead to contract signature on unsatisfactory terms for the public

14 OBVIOUS NEED OF: POLITICAL WILL NATIONAL TASKFORCE COUNTRYS NETWORK After years there is political will in Poland There is growing cooperation between state and communities The problem is how to built the national and community competences (taskforce): without money without acceptance to increase the public administration without new administration unites

15 Establishment of the PPP Platform Establishment of the PPP Platform – an instrument for cooperation and knowledge exchange among public institutions Recipients of the support – open formula, accessible for all (but only) public institutions Financing – Technical Assistance Operational Programme (POPT): -Measure 3.1 Functioning of the institutions involved in the NSRF implementation -Measure 3.2 Individual key projects Administration – Department for Preparation of Individual Projects at the Ministry of Regional Development

16 Establishment of the PPP Platform Approval of the Task Plan for PPP at the MRD by the Minister in September 2010 Conclusion of the Agreement setting up the PPP Platform (26 January 2011) by 9 ministers, 3 central institutions, the state bank BGK, regional associations and municipalities Launch of the website – 31 January 2011 Establishment of the Steering Committee Priorities for 2011 agreed on by the Steering Committee Publication of the PPP Forum Start of sectoral and horizontal (finance, legal, procurement) Working Groups



19 PPP Platform – goals Create a cooperation network in order to ensure the exchange of knowledge, best practice and verified solutions for the preparation and implementation of PPP projects; Provide public entities with access to opinions, surveys, studies, audit reports, model contracts, project documentation and other documents concerning PPP; Initiate and support preparation and execution of pilot PPP projects; Support for public entities implementing PPP projects; Promotion of PPP as an instrument for effective implementation of public tasks.

20 PPP taskforce – national network Use of the EU Funds Information Points Information Knowledge dissemination Helpdesk Workshops Start from 2012 after training of the staff

21 Network of EU Funds Information Points – basic information (September 2011) 109 points: Central European Funds Information Point in Warsaw, 16 Main Information Points, 91 Local Information Points, Information Point at the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency (PAIIZ),
