PPP are long term, usually high value contracts between the public and private sectors to create an asset and use it to provide public services PPP are a form of public procurement A PPP could: - Have private or mixed public and private financing - Include EU Structural Funds (or not) - Include different types of private finance

6 6 Key features of PPP – 1 Creation and/or exploitation of asset by private sector supplier. Public assets exploited can be land and/or right granted to provide a service by a public entity Provision of new/existing service over a defined period of time (often a longer period of time - say up to 30 years - than is usual in public contracts) Payment of periodic charge to supplier by public entity (and/or payments by the public directly as customer). Charge may vary according to service volume provided

7 7 Key features of PPP – 2 No commitment by public entity to pay except when asset is being used in provision of service The sharing of the risks and benefits of the outcome of the project by both partners The public authority is responsible for defining the scope, quality, time scale, means of service delivery and, in some cases, prices for the service
