A value for money (VfM) analysis consists of a systematic comparison of total costs of financing and delivering an infrastructure project by traditional government means versus private sector means. For a government, there is no single more important exercise than carrying out this transparent cost comparator. Governments must understand the projected costs and revenue streams early in the development of a potential publicprivate partnership (PPP) project so that they can make an informed, long-term decision as to whether the project is viable and what appropriate financing mechanism would be.

The Institute for Public-Private Partnerships, A Tetra Tech Company (IP3), provides practical, process-oriented sessions on how to conduct VfM analyses, case studies of actual VfM analyses, structuring PPPs, and action planning. Participants in this course will learn how to design and manage VfM analyses for use in their own countries and organizations.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding why VfM and public sector cost comparison analyses are so critical for PPP project development
  • Analyzing the overall strategic planning requirements for identifying and screening PPP project opportunities
  • Illustrating how to construct Public Sector Cost (PSC) and VfM models and how to calculate and analyze cost input variables for PPP projects
  • Being able to forecast financing costs and discount rates
  • Analyzing, valuing, and managing retained public sector risks and contingent liabilities in long-term PPP projects
  • Creating a detailed, strategic VfM action plan to apply learning outcomes on the job
