SANTIAGO DE CHILE – The Institute for Public-Private Partnerships (IP3), headquartered in the Washington, D.C. area and a division of Tetra Tech ES, Inc. (NASDAQ Symbol: TTEK, 400 offices, 16,000 employees, and $2.3 billion annual revenue), is expanding its consulting services in Latin America with a focus on covering the cycle of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). These new initiatives are comprised by support for the development of institutional and regulatory frameworks, project structuring, procurement and bidding strategy design, supervision of PPP contracts, and transactions. Last month, IP3’s Director for Latin America, Tomas Kiguel, traveled to Santiago de Chile to attend the PPP Americas Summit. Organized by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Government of Chile, this event brought together government officials and private sector experts involved in the design and implementation of PPPs to discuss lessons learned and best practices in project preparation and managing partnerships to attract private investment.
Due to high demand from public and private entities, IP3 has announced the release of their PPP Specialist Certification Program in Spanish. This capacity building program will enable professionals from all over Latin America to share best practices and advanced model comparisons. IP3 also offers customized capacity building programs to government agencies, corporations, and investment funds covering the entire PPP cycle.
IP3 has designed the legal, institutional, and regulatory framework for PPPs in over 40 countries. The Institute is recognized within the industry as the architect of PPP programs in emerging markets, and is involved in most of the pioneering and successful PPP programs around the world, including landmark programs with more than 117 agencies in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Tetra Tech has implemented programs –that have been valued at over $250 million– in Colombia, Mexico, and Central America in the energy, environmental management, water, security, and institutional capacity building sectors. Tetra Tech is a global leader in providing engineering and technical services. The company has been acknowledged as the leader in various international rankings, such as water, environmental science and management.
