In many civil law countries a separate administrative law governs PPP arrangements. A number of the key  administrative rules that apply to delegated management arrangements are listed below¹. It is important to seek local legal advice to check whether these rules apply in a particular civil system. It is also important to note that in a civil law jurisdiction, unless the contract specifies that the parties have agreed to arbitration, the contract will be enforced by the administrative courts.
