Course Description

As the capstone course* for the online PPP Strategies, Methods, and Project Structuring Program, participants will learn how to combine the new skills and knowledge they have gained in each of the previous P-series courses (P-10, P-11, P-12, P-13, and P-14) and apply them to a practical, real-world PPP project action plan.

Using real-world case studies, participants will carry out crucial steps in the PPP project management cycle. Understanding the PPP framework requirements, the participants will select an appropriate PPP project based on evaluation criteria; plan and review PPP feasibility analyses; identify, analyze, and allocate PPP risks; and plan and manage PPP performance monitoring and contract management functions.

Following this course, participants will understand the PPP project management cycle holistically, how each of the key phases and tasks inter-relate, and will be able to manage the practical, real-world challenges, requirements, and constraints to planning and implementing PPP projects.

*Students must pass P-10, P-11, P-12, P-13, and P-14 prior to participating in this course.
