Public-private partnerships (PPPs) have gained significant importance over the last decade. They are primarily perceived as means for governments and public authorities to leverage the private sector’s financing and operational capabilities. In turn, private entities gain from profit sharing and carefully allocated risk distribution. Several types of PPPs exist, ranging from the simple management contracts, to the more complex arrangements that shift a lot of weight to the private sector such as Design, build, finance and operate model. PPPs require attention at multiple levels, from multiple stakeholders: assessing whether a project is fit for a PPP, evaluating alternative PPP models, analyzing the most competitive bidding terms, etc…
Mindsets can support both public and private entities through a number of different tools and mechanisms along the entire PPP cycle.
With the public sector, Mindsets can support policy making as well as transaction analysis, evaluation, support and closure. Mindsets devises strategies necessary to deliver successful PPPs by structuring PPP models that optimize risk allocation to the party that can best control/manage it. It advises on economic, financial, legal and regulatory as well as technical requirements by leveraging its sister companies’ and affiliates’ expertise, all while building capacity and skills to empower teams.
With the private sector, Mindsets can support the design of bidding strategies starting with developing decision models to establish project feasibility under a range of terms to the determination of competitive bidding paramters.
Mindsets can also facilitate the formation of PPPs by bringing together the right stakeholders for specific opportunities.
