Recommended Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Contractual Provisions
The draft updated Report on Recommended Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Contractual Provisions is open for public consultation to capture inputs and recommendations by all relevant stakeholders to feed into the new edition.
The PPP team, within the World Bank Group’s Sustainable Development global practice, is working with other development partners on the updated edition, expected to be released spring 2017. The goal of the report is to assist its target audience, namely contracting authorities – and particularly those in emerging PPP markets, with obtaining a better and more comprehensive understanding of a number of provisions that deal with specific legal issues encountered during a PPP agreement, such as force majeure, termination rights or dispute resolution.
Following up on the 2015 edition, this new version will include:
- Detailed commentaries regarding key considerations relevant to contracting authorities due to different levels of PPP transactional experience;
- Detailed commentaries relevant to contracting authorities due to the characteristics of different legal systems;
- Guidance on specific matters relevant in the context of each of the selected contractual provisions in order to help contracting authorities carefully assess the issues specific to their own PPP project and jurisdiction in developing contractual language.
We appreciate your input and feedback by February 28, 2017.
While all comments received will be reviewed and documented, comments and recommendations may not necessarily be incorporated into the final version of the report. A comprehensive table will be released at the end of the consultation phase listing all feedback, comments and recommendations without attribution to the person, organization or entity that submitted it.
If you and/or your organization are interested in collaborating with the team to enhance the Report on Recommended PPP Contractual Provisions updated edition, please submit your comments and feedback by February 28, 2017.
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
