The use of Public Private Partnerships as a procurement and implementation model for the last 15 years in BC. Through Partnerships BC, the provincial crown corporation 52 major infrastructure projects with a combined capital value of almost $18 billion are or have been delivered.

Public Private Partnerships are complex project models that push the boundaries of traditional project models by seeking to define the scope upfront and ensure that infrastructure maintenance is set up for the long term. There is also the complication of long term project finance and lender interests.

This session will provide a context for Public Private Partnerships, outlining what they are and what they are not. It will inform the audience on the mechanics of the model and how it relates to traditional project management. The session will also look at the drivers for each party around the transaction table. The Public Sector procuring authority, the private sector investor, the construction contractor and the long term service provider.
