PPPs in Engineering Projects - Financing, Risk Mitigation, PPP Procurement & Bidding, Good Governance & Anti-corruption

Event Details

Whereas there is increased demand for quality and affordable services from the citizens, the country is still grappling with funding gaps for infrastructure. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) provide an alternative source of investment capital for required infrastructure projects. PPPs also help in, reducing government sovereign borrowings and the associated risks, driving creation of local long term funding markets, utilizing efficiencies of the private sector in running public services, expanding the economy and stimulating job creation, as well as, increasing the quality of public services to the Kenyan citizens.

Engineers are involved in development of infrastructure in every sector of the economy, and hence, they are at the center of implementation PPP projects in the country. It is, therefore, essential for engineers to have an in-depth understanding of how PPPs work, from financial, commercial, project to legal aspects. By attending this virtual workshop engineers will learn how to:

  • Source funding for local and international projects.
  • Evaluate the successes and failures of private finance.
  • Know when a project can and cannot be delivered through PPPs.
  • Implement, structure and strategize PPP projects.
  • Review PPP financing options and financial models to optimise Return on Investment (ROI).
  • Appreciate different models of private finance infrastructure delivery.
  • Learn best practice for the delivery of PPP contracts.
  • Analyse financial and legal aspects of PPP contracts.
  • Learn best practice in PPP modelling.

Key highlights of the workshop include:

  • Financial & Commercial aspects of PPPs, e.g., funding, how to attract investors, project finance, ROI.
  • Project aspects of PPPs, e.g., project planning, cost control, risks, implementation.
  • Legal aspects of PPPs, e.g., contract, regulation, dispute resolution.
