Public-Private Partnerships

Public-Private Partnerships,

Public-Private Partnerships Meanings:

  1. Public-private partnerships include collaborations between government agencies and private companies that can be used to finance, build and operate projects such as public transport networks, parks and convention centers. Financing projects through public-private partnerships allows for early completion or commencement of projects. Public-private partnerships often include exemptions from taxes or other operating income, protection of small liabilities, or partial ownership of nominal public goods and services for non-profit private sector companies.

    • Public-private partnerships allow large government projects, such as roads, bridges or hospitals, to be implemented with private funds.
    • This partnership works best when private sector technology and innovation are combined with public sector incentives to get work done on time and on budget.
    • Risks for private companies include price increases, technical failures and non-compliance with quality standards, while public partners cannot be charged consensus fees, such as for toll roads or bridges.
    • Despite their advantages, public-private partnerships have been criticized for blurring the line between legitimate public goals and private for-profit activities and for understanding public-public exploitation for self-employment and for profit.
