Public Private Partnerships

Public Private Partnerships (PPP) are vital to the development of infrastructure in Australia as they allow governments and the private sector to work together and share resources on key projects.

In line with the National PPP Policy Framework, the Australian, State and Territory governments will consider a PPP for any project with a capital cost in excess of $A50 million.

National PPP Policy Framework

The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) endorsed the National PPP Policy and Guidelines in November 2008. The National PPP Policy and Guidelines apply to all Australian, State and Territory government agencies.
