Creating new opportunities with PPP

Ole Lykke


28 November 2013


PA’s Ole Lykke, transport expert, discusses how Private Public Partnerships (PPPs) can create new opportunities. According to Ole, the view of PPPs in Denmark is far too narrow and one-sided, and fails to acknowledge the benefits of risk-sharing.

“When entering into a PPP partnership, one needs to figure out what creates the most value for the public sector. The public sector organisation should be clear in their demands to the delivered services. Moreover, both parties need to identify risks prior to the contract agreement,” says Ole.

Ole argues that the PPP mindset should be integrated in larger public IT projects, in order to make both parties consider the value of the services delivered and agree on risks; and not least prepare a realistic business case.

“PPP is about delivering services to the public sector at the agreed price, quality and time. Evidently, it needs to be competitive but in this matter, the financing is only one of many parameters, perhaps even the least important,” says Ole.
