In today’s business and political environment, developing a well-structured PPP contract can be a challenge. Many PPP projects run into problems and even fail due to a lack of knowledge and advance thinking about the potential pitfalls, renegotiation opportunities, and anti-corruption practices.
This course discusses how to avoid the common pitfalls in the selection of candidate PPP projects, i.e., structuring the project; designing, managing, and adjudicating the contract; managing and implementing the project; and identifying the drivers of renegotiation. The course focuses on how to address corruption and dissuade its use, and how to resolve conﬂicts and renegotiate contracts. This course provides a platform for learning that will signiﬁcantly increase the chances for success of PPP programs.
The PPP Controls, Corruption, Conﬂicts, and Arbitration course examines several real case studies where these problems existed and emphasizes how those situations could have been avoided with a well-designed contract, proper oversight, and appropriate controls.
- Describe how to avoid the common pitfalls in structuring PPP projects by properly designing and adjudicating the contract

- Design a process for project management and implementation that can help avoid future contract issues
- Identify areas of potential corruption and develop methods to dissuade its use
