About the Webcast

The PPP model has been implemented with success in the Australian market over many decades, but the commercial landscape continues to change. Contractors are pushing back on the traditional PPP risk allocation whereby all construction phase risks are transferred to a D&C contractor via a fixed price, fixed time contract. Governments are responding by saying that they propose to explore new ways of allocating or sharing risks. Is there an opportunity for equity investors to share some of risks that were previously taken by D&C contractors, in a way that provides a better value for money outcome for governments and taxpayers? And how will the desire of parties for more collaborative approaches to procurement and contracting manifest itself in the PPP model? Owen will explore these and other questions.
