Many economies are yet to adopt broadly recognized good practices to prepare, procure, and manage Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). This report flags potential improvements that can help governments fill the gap in an effort to provide better PPP procurement and enable better infrastructure service delivery to all.
The report benchmarks government capabilities in 82 economies across four key areas: PPP preparation, PPP procurement, unsolicited proposals, and PPP contract management. Across the four areas measured, the data finds that most economies fall short of recognized good practices. Project preparation and contract management are the two areas where a significant number of countries perform poorly. The average performance of each of the categories varies across regions and income level, with OECD high- income economies and the Latin America and Caribbean region performing on or above average. The report highlights that a transparent information system is essential to monitor and manage PPP contracts. Nonetheless, only 16 percent of the economies measured require data to be publicly available.
