More information on Public Private Partnerships
A Public Private Partnership is a long-term contract for the delivery of a service, where the service involves the construction of a new asset or infrastructure (eg a prison) or enhancing an existing asset. The project is privately financed on a non-recourse basis and full legal ownership is retained by The Crown.
The role of the PPP Team at the Treasury is to support agencies undertaking PPP projects. It provides consistency across projects and maintains the government’s integrity in how it implements these types of arrangements.
