Demystifying the public-private partnership paradigm

Government Challenge

Governments face a number of long-term fiscal issues, including aging infrastructure, growing populations in urban centers, increased construction costs, cost overruns and delays in traditional procurements, and transparency and accountability. These challenges will require significant actions to find sustainable solutions.

These fiscal sustainability issues are of such magnitude that governments are more aggressively exploring a range of financing and cost-cutting initiatives, including expanded partnerships with the private sector to support major investments and provide critical services. Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) are contractual relationships whereby the resources, risks, and rewards of both government and a private company are combined to provide a product or service more quickly, on budget, and at enhanced public value. However, PPPs can be complex arrangements and require an advisor to help ensure government successfully meets its goals.

How we can help

Our KPMG PPP team has extensive global experience in helping public sector agencies make the most of PPPs as an alternative to traditional procurement methods. This experience is bolstered by our competencies in transformation, outsourcing to the private sector, defense procurement modeling, logistic support, shared services, cost modeling, and cyber security.

Based on our understanding of the challenges and complexities, we can help clients with:

  • Identifying and managing risks
  • Working within budgets and affordability constraints
  • Managing complex procurements on time and within budget
  • Reducing life cycle costs, including sustainment and support.
