At the completion of P3DP’s three-day PPP “Train-the-Trainers”, the 21 participants announced their plans to establish the Ukrainian Association of PPP Trainers and Consultants. Their goal is to ensure that future and current municipal and business leaders in Ukraine acquire knowledge and skills necessary to create and manage viable PPPs. Participants also shared how their experiences in introducing PPP courses. KMBS presented how PPP modules are now incorporated into each of their MBA programs.
Full competitive tendering for public private partnerships (PPPs) is considered best practice, Governments around the world have become acutely aware that PPPs can result in large future fiscal commitments that may not be apparent because they are not accounted for in the same way as normal liabilities (e.g. government debt). Contractual commitments to pay the PPP company over 20–30 years are technically not debt service, but they can have a similar fiscal impact. This note looks at the issues, especially in the context of municipal PPPs, discusses approaches used in other countries, and then gives suggestions for how Ukraine might deal with these questions as a first step.
This note looks at two instances in which there might be less than full competition: the case where there is only one bidder and the case of unsolicited proposals.
The note examines practice in other countries and makes suggestions for Ukraine.
