This work is a contribution to increase knowledge about public-private partnerships (PPP) in international business. It focuses on partnerships that are stirring into governance issues of the host country: how a MNC and a host government can implement a successful collaboration that aims to promote capacity building in the host country. The case of study is BP in Azerbaijan. It investigates the background and the circumstances that led to the partnership between BP and its host government in Azerbaijan. The thesis resulted into four main findings: (1) the societal background and the morality and virtue of a MNC determine its decision to engage into PPP for capacity building. (2) The MNC and the host government are more willing to engage in partnership if the expected value-added of the cooperation exceed the disadvantages created by the current governance failure. (3) Protection of its investment seems to be a stronger driver for a MNC to enter a PPP aiming at capacity building rather than the wish for stability in the host country. (4) High bargaining power coupled with a persuasive influence act more as stronger driver in engagement to PPP than the support from the industry.
This research study is centred on the appraisal of the Non-Profit Distribution Model (NPD) in Public Private Partnership (PPP) for development of social housing. The provision of affordable housing is still unrealized in most countries of the Western world where demands outstrip supply. The reason for this is based on the index of commitment from the public and private sectors. This report certainly excludes the criticism of the Private Finance Initiative (PFI), but an appraisal of the NPD model in comparison with the PFI scheme as an alternative for public service delivery. The NPD model being a special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of the Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) has met with criticisms from the private sector who believe that the current Model pushes too hard and this will not be productive for the public sector. It is suggest that the approach needs to be refined to maintain interest while still deriving the objective for better Value For Money (VFM) for the taxpayers.
The government has placed Private Finance Initiative at the heart of its strategy to reform public services in the UK. The main function of this reform is to provide quality public facilities to their users. This has seen PFI emerge as one of the key forms of Public Private Partnership delivery not just within the UK construction industry, but increasingly so on a global scale. Despite value for money' being one of the core principles of PFI, questions have remained with regards to the quality of the finished projects delivered via this route particularly where design is concerned. This book investigates the role of quality of design within PFI, examining its importance and whether PFI is delivering facilities to a high standard of design quality.
The research aim of this scholarly work was the economic assessment of PPP Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects in Central Eastern Europe, based on a Hungarian research sample. The primary theoretical reference is a basic business management approach, Shareholder Value management. Key questions: Is the private party of a PPP project able to increase shareholder value? May this intention be harmonised with that of the public party representing public interest? These questions are understood to be the clues for sustainable PPP projects. The work includes the qualitative analysis on the interpretations of PPP in the general public as reflected by press articles, as well as the analysis of the objectives of PPP as reflected by the key stakeholders of selected projects. The analysis resulted in the establishment of a typology of PPP projects based on factors of success. Furthermore, the challenges to success in Hungarian projects were explored and analysed. Recommendations for practical actions and institutional changes that aim the improved effectiveness of Central Eastern European PPP projects conclude the work.
Many emerging markets, low-income countries require a major step increase in infrastructure investments to alleviate growth constrains, respond to urbanization pressures,and meet their crucial goals for investment growth,development and sustainability. Growth prospects as seen from documented research, is greatly hampered by the absence of infrastructure not only in developing countries,but also in some developed countries. Strategic infrastructure like roads, energy and ports needs to be in huge existence to drive growth. An estimated 1.4 billion people have no access to electricity,0.9 billion have no access to portable drinking water and 2.6 billion without access to sanitation. The experience of developed countries highlights how a temporal boost in construction projects can more than triple the rate of growth with a high net social value.The role of infrastructure finance cannot be over emphasized in times when the aspirations of most African countries is to attain full growth potential. The question is how can the people get the best value for money, should the approach be public, private partnership or enforced public procurement, Public sector comparator maybe the solution
