European PPP Expertise Centre (EPEC), March 2014
This publication aims to help public contracting authorities, especially less experienced ones, to understand what they can reasonably expect from their advisers and how they can obtain the best advice from them. The report starts by explaining the advisers typically involved in PPP projects and the main tasks they usually perform within the project cycle. It then discusses the contractual options that are available to hire advisers before, finally, setting out a range of good practice aimed at fostering the commitment of hired advisers working alongside the Authority.
