PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP

Public-Private Partnership (PPP) – is one of the most required  alternatives to public financing for infrastructure and strategic projects

At present in economic crisis environment, the PPP models allow protecting private investments and guarantee stability for contractual relations.

PPP is a multi-aspect category and should not be narrowed only to the Law of Ukraine “On Public Private Partnership”.

We are happy to offer you a long list of advisory services ranging from preparation of financial and legal models, decisions for infrastructure or social PPP projects to assistance in their implementation (management).

The most relevant areas for PPP projects are as follows:

  • Rehabilitation of household solid waste landfills as alternative energy sources. Financial and legal model is based on joint venture contract;
  • Rehabilitation of ‘vodokanals’ (construction of wastewater treatment facilities – sludge as alternative energy source). Model - consortium.
  • Construction of highways (roads) and road infrastructure. Model – concession which would be inefficient without investment agreement;
  • Construction of social housing for internally displaced persons. Model –agreement on comprehensive development of the territory.
  • Construction and management of integrated property complex of recreation facilities with forest roads.
  • Construction and management of fast food factories for social catering needs. Model – investment agreement.
  • Management of mines as unitary property complexes. Model – concession.
  • Management of municipal utilities as unitary property complexes. Model – management contract.
  • Functional services for pre-schools and schools. Model – management contract.

The above listed examples of PPP project were prepared (financial and legal models) and in some cases implemented by Ms. Natalia Dotsenko-Belous.
