The Government of Sindh has established a central PPP Unit in the Finance Department to assist the PPP Policy Board in promotion and development of Public-Private Partnerships in the Province. Besides, the PPP Unit assist government agencies in liaison with consultants, overall procurement process and execution of projects to be undertaken in PPP mode.
PPP mode of procurement, though at nascent stage in Pakistan at present, has great potential in the future. In view of the special characteristics of PPP projects and the need to attract qualified private investors to support these projects, a special legal and regulatory framework is needed. To meet this objective, the Government of Sindh has enacted a PPP Law and promulgated new Rules for PPPs in 2010. These policy guidelines have been drafted to supplement the legal and regulatory framework for PPPs and to assist both the private and the public sectors in implementing this innovative procurement methodology.
