Topics of Interest

The New Zealand Infrastructure Plan
The Thirty Year New Zealand Infrastructure Plan 2015 (the Plan) provides a new approach to infrastructure management and planning to tackle the challenges of the next 30 years, along with supporting actions. This provides national direction to infrastructure development in New Zealand and confidence to the private sector.

Public Private Partnerships
In the New Zealand context, a Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a long term contract for the delivery of a service, where provision of the service requires the construction of a new asset, or enhancement of an existing asset, that is financed from external (private) sources on a non-recourse basis, and full legal ownership of the asset is retained by the Crown. 
The primary purpose of PPP procurement is to improve the delivery of service outcomes from major public infrastructure assets.  The Treasury’s website contains the Standard Form PPP Project Agreement and other useful information regarding the PPP Programme.
