Bidding and tendering for PPP projects
Often aligned with tendering, PPP (Public-Private-Partnership) or PFI (Private Funding Initiative) projects are becoming an increasingly important way of funding significant projects. PPP projects cover various forms of cooperation (joint ventures, partnerships, outsourcing etc.) where the private and public sector put together their resources to achieve a specific objective. PFI is a method of providing funds for major capital investments where private firms are contracted to complete and manage the projects.

PPP projects are most useful where the private sector can more effectively carry out the project than the public sector would do. In an ideal scenario the result is the best quality service provided for the public.
