In this period of fiscal stress and diminished funding for ever increasing infrastructure needs, governments are looking for alternatives to traditional infrastructure delivery paradigms. In the U.S., growing numbers of States and other public sector entities are exploring the potential for partnering with the private sector in many infrastructure sectors. In parallel, specialized funds for infrastructure investment are expanding. There is now both a significant pipeline of projects and a pool of capital for investment across the spectrum from monetization of existing assets to the development of new assets through various forms of Public Private Partnerships.
Public Private Partnerships are complex commercial arrangements which seek to optimally balance responsibilities, risks and rewards. Successful partnerships require careful analysis and design, skillful transaction execution, and consistent achievement of performance targets. While there is a growing body of international leading practices in partnering, each infrastructure project is unique and requires a tailor-made solution.
Both public and private sector entities engaged in Public Private Partnerships in the U.S. are increasingly turning to experienced advisors to help transform their public policy and commercial objectives into viable market propositions designed to create or enhance infrastructure assets and improve the services delivered through them.
