EIPA seminar on public sector capital investment projects

Creation date: May 3, 2011

The European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) is organising a workshop titled “Appraising, Prioritising and Procuring Public Sector Capital Investment Projects - What are the Options? Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) v Conventional Procurement” on 24-25 May 2011 in its Maastricht premises.


The recently released White Paper on Transport: Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area - towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system, hints at an increasing role for PPPs in the implementation of the TEN-T. A clear focus on assessing projects for their PPP potential is a theme to be developed for the next budget cycle.


The workshop, which is aimed at officials and experts from national ministries, executive agencies and regional governments, will also feature a speaker from the TEN-T EA’s Financial Engineering sector who will outline the practices of the Agency in evaluating projects and in assessing the potential role of public-private partnerships. Furthermore there will be a discussion of the current appraisal methods used by the TEN-T Programme in project selection and how they compare and contrast to those used in assessing projects for PPP potential.
