- Is there a future for PPP?
- Public service heads, managers, and those who work in some capacity with the public sector.
- Those employed within the public sector charged with the responsibility of bringing about change so that their organisation is more efficient and offers more value for money.
- Public service executives that understand the need for reform and, as a team, think through the recalibration of the state and its services that this implies.
- Those who wish to address the ethos, goals and disciplines of public service and will help to create the means of refashioning and strengthening them.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to understand that:
- Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are adopted for many reasons, as a financing method that does not directly add to public debt, as a way of managing facilities, as a way of exploiting private sector expertise and as a way of sharing risks.
- Risk sharing can prove to be illusory.
- PPPs require skilled management and negotiation to make sure that the public sector achieves value for money.
