Public Private Partnerships
A Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a method of procurement for social infrastructure projects and typically involves the government engaging the private sector to design, construct, finance and maintain social infrastructure, and delivery ancillary services, for a specific period.
The Tasmanian Government recognises that, when handled well, benefits can accrue to the community from involving the private sector on a competitive basis in infrastructure projects.
Tasmanian government agencies should only consider a PPP where it can be clearly established that there is sufficient scale and market appetite in Tasmania for a PPP to provide value for money to the government. Tasmanian government agencies considering a PPP should firstly contact the Shareholder Policy and Markets Branch of the Department of Treasury and Finance for further information.
