10:10 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: PPP Delivered Infrastructure Projects - Effective Governance and Risk Management and Innovative Delivery Models

PPP delivery models to finance major hospital projects are costing Australia billions of dollars.
However, while governments recognise the importance of investment in infrastructure to help their economies grow, achieving better risk allocation, governance and decision making in PPPs remain a critical concern. With reference to recent PPP delivered infrastructure projects, this panel will discuss the opportunities, benefits and risks of PPPs and explore alternative delivery models.

Discussion points will include:
  • Opportunities for PPPs to deliver innovative and cost effective models of care
  • How we can improve our governance and allocation of risk when engaging in PPPs to improve time and cost efficiencies
  • Exploring how the public sector and private sector providers can work together more effectively to develop approaches that may provide equitable benefits including shared risk management, value for money and innovative delivery models
  • Alternative delivery models to enhance stakeholder engagement and collaboration
