The New Zealand PPP Model and Policy: Setting the Scene

This document provides an overview of the New Zealand Public Private Partnership (PPP) model and policy.

It is intended to set the scene for procuring entities, potential bidders and the public, by outlining:

  • what PPP procurement is and, in particular, the key policy and contractual features that shape the New Zealand PPP model

  • the rationale for choosing PPP procurement to deliver major infrastructure assets and their related service outcomes

  • when a procuring entity should select PPP procurement over other conventional methods of asset delivery, and the process for this assessment (including integration with the Better Business Cases framework)

  • the role of the Interim Infrastructure Transactions Unit in assisting the procuring entity with PPP procurement, and

  • a brief overview of the procurement process.
