Scotland has a great record of evolving PPP models to suit particular geographic, social and political conditions going back almost two decades. Meanwhile, recent developments in Wales are breaking new ground.
In two articles recently published on the FOMIN/Inter-American Development Bank and World Bank blogs, Martin Finnigan and Michael Walker explain some of the nuances and make the case for applying such models more widely.
Education PPP seminar
This October with Maria Jimena Cordoba from Castalia we provided a Education PPP training workshop for Uruguayan government agencies including Corporación Nacional de Desarollo (CND), Administración Nacional de Educación Pública (ANEP) and the Institute for Children and Adolescents (INAU) in Montevideo. The workshop covered international experience with Education PPP and management of PPP contracts.
We also delivered a presentation on best practice in Education PPPs at a breakfast briefing event in Montevideo organised by the Inter-American Development Bank, the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) and the World Bank to promote the forthcoming Uruguay Kindergarten PPP project.
Approximately 100 delegates from across the Uruguayan PPP industry heard our presentation which described the Scottish experience of Education PPP over the last twenty years.
