Public Private Partnerships

When building economic and social infrastructure, the focus moves to public-private partnerships in partner countries of international cooperation, too. Often in those countries, there is a lack of the structures and means to implement original public tasks. There is hope that especially with public-private partnerships, there will be improvements in efficiency through lower costs, faster and more flexible processes and innovative solutions. For this to succeed - in addition to creating a legal framework - public-private partnerships must be integrated into institutional processes and coordination processes and the distribution of roles within the public institutions need to be adapted. The public administration then goes from being the implementation authority to the controlling authority of contracts with the private sector - this implies a change in organisational culture within the administration and new competences for the employees.


Como advises and supports clients in introducing capacities for the implementation of public-private partnerships and in strengthening existing ones. Important aspects here are a needs analysis, strategy development, developing cooperation models and the introduction of strategic management and, among other aspects, keeping an eye on knowledge management and monitoring. Special attention is given to the interface management between the different public institutions, who are involved in partnerships. These are, for example, the PPP preparation unit, the PPP Centre of Excellence as well as the regulatory authority.
