Public Private Partnerships: Exploring the Issues


Professor Jane Broadbent, Professor of Accounting

School of Management, Royal Holloway, University of London

Professor Richard Laughlin, Emeritus Professor of Accounting

Department of Management, King's College London, University of London

Public private partnerships (PPPs) have been used in the UK, Australia, and in other countries for the provision of public services. Many recommendations are available on the pre-decision processes to guide the design of the initial long-term contracts. This presentation explores the issues surrounding how to evaluate the longer post-decision operational stage of these PPPs where few recommendations are available.

Professor Nonna Martinov-Bennie from International Governance and Performance (IGAP) Research Centre will introduce Professor Broadbent and Professor Laughlin on this great occasion.


The seminar is FREE and by attending you will earn one CPD hour.

Kindly email by noon Friday 21 November 2014 and advise your CPA Member No. if you are attending.
