Course Description

F-13 Project Financing Agreements and Contracts provides participants with practical insights into the functioning and composition of PPP project documents and financing agreements.

This course focuses on the agreements often used to structure viable PPPs that are attractive to lenders and investors. Since the larger portion of PPP funding typically comes from debt (loans, bonds, etc.), this course will explore the role of project and financing documents from a project lender’s perspective.

Through interactive webinars, collaboration, virtual discussion, and self-paced learning, participants will gain knowledge and skills that will enable them to facilitate financial PPP transactions.
