Barriers to Competition and Efficiency in the Procurement of Public Private Partnerships
Infrastructure Australia engaged KPMG to help identify and find practical solutions to the most significant barriers to competition and efficiency in the procurement of PPPs.
This review responded to criticism that bid costs in Australia are excessive, it takes too long to award contracts, and that new local and overseas entrants face barriers to entering the Australian PPP market.
This review was one of the first of its kind to compare procurement processes internationally. Notwithstanding the relatively positive findings for the Australian processes, there is room for improvement.
The Australian, State and Territory Government members of the National PPP Working Group have developed a range of actions to respond to the findings and recommendations in the KPMG report.
