Private Public Partnerships Guidelines for Local Governments

01 Jan 2013

Report Summary

The primary purpose of the PPP Guidelines is to enhance the institutional and individual capacities of local level stakeholders (local governments, private sector and communities) to identify, plan, design and implement viable partnerships for decentralized service delivery.

Public-Private Partnerships are an innovative approach to addressing the problems of service delivery to the poor. The Policy therefore provides a framework that enables public and private sectors to work together to improve public service delivery by drawing on the capabilities of the private sector in providing public infrastructure and related services.

These guidelines are intended to outline for local governments/agencies, potential private sector bidders and the public the general direction and principles that will be adopted and used for implementing the Public Private Partnerships as alternative means of enhancing revenue in local governments for effective and efficient delivery of services and infrastructural development.

The guidelines also provide a framework for operationalising the Public-Private Partnership Framework Policy for Uganda, approved in March 2010. The Guidelines are intended to be used by the Local Governments to assess whether a PPP is to be preferred over other forms of procurement.
