Facts and fiction about Public Private Partnerships
A public private partnership (PPP) is a service contract between the public and the private sector where the Government pays the private sector to deliver infrastructure and related services over the long-term.
PPPs typically make the private sector parties who build public infrastructure financially responsible for its condition and performance throughout the asset’s lifetime. Victoria’s PPP policy, Partnerships Victoria, requires that all projects must offer value for money as a government investment, independent of the delivery method.
