Course Description

Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) are one tool that governments can employ to help deliver needed infrastructure services. PPPs are a way of contracting for services, using private sector innovation and expertise, and they often leverage private finance. PPPs can, implemented under the right circumstances, improve service provision and facilitate economic growth.

although the approach of the PPP to infrastructural development is gaining momentum in emerging economies, their use as a tool to accelerate this development agenda in developing countries is still immature. the capacities to implement programmes using PPPs is generally underdeveloped in these countries. subsequently there is perception that PPPs are complex processes and takes for ever for the project to come to financial and commercial closure. the other challenge about the PPPs although related to capacities is the weak governance arrangements that may negate the benefits of PPPs as an instrument for increased efficiency. the current belief of most policy makers in the Ministry of Health where i work is that PPPs are like donations (financial or otherwise) from private sector for public sector. but for those who have understood a bit of PPP concepts the fear of loss of jobs as a result of private sector "takeover" has significant... although the approach of the PPP to infrastructural development is gaining momentum in emerging economies, their use as a tool to accelerate this development agenda in developing countries is still immature. the capacities to implement programmes using PPPs is generally underdeveloped in these countries. subsequently there is perception that PPPs are complex processes and takes for ever for the project to come to financial and commercial closure. the other challenge about the PPPs although related to capacities is the weak governance arrangements that may negate the benefits of PPPs as an instrument for increased efficiency. the current belief of most policy makers in the Ministry of Health where i work is that PPPs are like donations (financial or otherwise) from private sector for public sector. but for those who have understood a bit of PPP concepts the fear of loss of jobs as a result of private sector "takeover" has significantly impeded the uptake of PPP. capacity building is and sensitization on PPPs is ongoing albeit the slow change in mindset. My question therefore, is the Management of Equipment Services (MES) by the National Health Services (NHS) of the UK a PPP?

Employed by the Government of Republic of Tanzania as a Principal Procurement Officer with thirteen years of experience. As a procurement officer I have participated in many procurement process/procedures, ie. Preparation of Did document, Quotations, Adverts, Contracts, minute taking, report writing, etc. In Public Private Partnership Procurement, I have no experience since it was not introduced in Government Sector before. But now days the issue of public private partnership has become common and Government stated to join hand with private companies which funded and operated different projects. Eg in Education Sector, Government Investments,, Agriculture Sector. (ie. Private Companies to finance the Government to the agreed service / project) That is what I know about PPP. But my interest is to lean more about the public private partnership.
