Developing a best-in-class PPP Agreement to manage risk, reduce cost and enhance value-for-money
With the Australian population expected to surge to 30 million by 2031, pressure is on the infrastructure sector to deliver durable, resilient and strategic assets that will keep up with our population’s increasing demands. Closing the Infrastructure Gap is not only a national priority; it is also one of today’s undisputed concerns across the globe.
In response, agencies are increasingly engaging with the industry to plan and deliver the critical assets that will encompass Australian economic growth and support the ongoing development of our Nation. Through trial and error and lessons learned, PPPs are firmly re-positioning themselves as the public sector’s preferred method of procuring high quality assets, whilst saving billions in taxpayer’s money.
With that in mind, PPP Finance for Infrastructure 2017 will explore key aspects of successful PPP planning and procuring processes.
In 2017, the key themes we will discuss are:
Developing greater private sector engagement and stronger PPP project pipelines
Effectively evaluating risk during the project lifecycle
Examining government and industry approaches to project selection and evaluation
Exploring how Competitive PPP bids are developed, managed and financed
Gaining insight into the bid evaluation process and contract negotiation
