The Municipal Public-Private Partnership Framework - Module 19: Private Context

The following sets out a few issues that are critically important to the PSP to help the municipality understand the kind of issues that are important for the PSP and the due diligence it will perform. The feasibility study1 and the PPP agreement2 should address these issues. Municipalities should review their projects from the perspective of the PSP to understand better the PSP’s perspective and priorities in advance of the bidding process and to prepare for the kind of questions and concerns that the PSP will likely raise.

The Municipal Public-Private Partnership Framework - Module 17: Capturing Commercial Value

PPP can provide a useful mechanism to mobilize commercial revenues to fund public services. To replace some or all of the public funding that would otherwise be needed to make a project viable, the project can generate commercial revenues. Such commercial revenues can be mobilized for many PPP projects, alongside or linked to public services. 

The Municipal Public-Private Partnership Framework - Module 12: Contract Management

 There is a tendency in PPP projects to focus efforts on the procurement process, award, and financial close. However, the real work starts during implementation, when the parties must deliver on their obligations. The municipality has a critical role to play during implementation. This module provides guidance on how the municipality can manage implementation of the PPP to improve the likelihood of success.

The Municipal Public-Private Partnership Framework - Module 11: Sample Municipal PPP Agreement

This PPP Agreement is provided only as a sample document. It must be adapted to fit the unique circumstances and needs of each particular Municipality and project for which its use is intended. National and local laws, regulations, policies and practices may prescribe a different approach to procuring project-level consulting services. It is based on the World Bank Guidance on PPP Contractual Provisions (2017 Edition).

Municipal Public-Private Partnership Framework

The Municipal PPP Framework is a tool developed specifically for local governments to help them understand and implement PPPs, keeping in mind their characteristics, needs and challenges. The Framework is inspired by best practices from PPPs around the world adjusted to be most relevant for municipal PPP, easy to use, practical and better aligned to the capacities and capabilities of local government.

What do mothers-in-law and national PPP structures have in common?

Most PPP structures are focused on national interests, governed by national laws, and coordinated by national PPP units and funding structures. This desire to define and control is often driven by the national government’s need to access new sources of funding, to deliver infrastructure with more efficiency (reducing costs and pressure on the budget), and to protect the national budget from the contingent risks associated with PPP projects. It makes sense, then, that the national government establishes the governance structure around PPPs.
