Selection of the procurement solution of a public investment, Value for Money ex-ante assessement

Key elements

There are many legal and financial solutions for undertaking public investments: various types of conventional public procurement, concessions, Public Private Partnerships (authority-pay PPP), all-inclusive tenders under a public contracting authority (design and implementation, all-inclusive tenders), etc. These solutions need to be analysed in terms of the constraints which are specific to the public authority and to the project in question; taking a long term perspective that includes both the contruction and the operating phases.
