Win-Win Agreements and Public Private Infrastructure Partnerships: Managerial and Governance Concerns

Author: HINDY LAUER SCHACHTER, JANICE DANIEL and RACHEL (RONGFANG) LIU
Published in PAQ, Vol. 41 No. 4

Using qualitative data from free form interviews this article examines the role of win-win agreements in negotiating state and local public- private infrastructure partnerships. Based on case study evidence the authors argue that the skills required to assemble coalitions for such partnerships may, in some cases, lead administrators to pay insufficient attention to the public values aspects of partnership negotiation.
The concluding section offers suggestions to alleviate this problem. One recommendation focuses on giving legislatures a larger role in overseeing the public value aspect of PPPs. Another recommendation proposes that administrators develop and use value checklists.
