Public Private Partnerships: Overview

Faced with growing demand to provide public facilities and services and constrained by lack of financial resources, governments are increasingly turning to the private sector and public private partnerships (P-3's).

Mulholland & Parker, with market, financial and development experience in both private and public sectors, assists government to examine the merits of P-3 versus conventional strategies to deliver public facilities and services.

Towards this end, the firm assists government with a number of P-3 related services:

  • Comparison of the costs of acquiring facilities with P-3 strategies versus lease versus build to own and other methods of developing facilities
  • To facilitate negotiations between partners, P-3 project financial analyses with examination of the costs and benefits available to both public and private partners
  • Value for money analyses
  • Market analyses for P-3 projects
  • P-3 feasibility studies
  • Land and property valuation
  • Development strategy analyses for P-3 projects
