Hurdles to PPP investments

A Guide to the Statistical Treatment of PPPs
This new “Guide to the Statistical Treatment of Public Private Partnerships” has been prepared by EPEC and Eurostat with a view to help PPP stakeholders better understand the impact of PPPs on government balance sheets. It explains if and how the features of typical PPP contracts influence the statistical treatment of a PPP as “on” or “off” the balance sheet of government. The Guide comes as a response to calls from many public and private sector stakeholders for more clarity on the rules used by Eurostat for assessing the statistical treatment of PPPs. The report is available here.

PPPs and State Aid
This report has been written to help PPP practitioners understand more about how State aid policy interacts with the procurement and delivery of PPPs. The intention of the report is to be as straightforward as possible for PPP practitioners, cutting out some of the wider State aid framework, which is often of a technical legal nature, in order to focus on the key topics of relevance to PPPs. The report is available here.
PPPs and Procurement
Two new Directives of relevance to PPPs in the area of procurement (specifically, public procurement and concessions) should now be available for Member States to use in procuring their projects. This report, written in collaboration with Herbert Smith Freehills, seeks to summarise the key impacts of these Directives on PPPs in the EU and, in particular, how the two Directives interrelate for those seeking to choose the most effective path for their PPPs. The report is available here.
