Title: Mapping Knowledge Resources for Government Learning on Public-Private Partnerships
Format: Conference
Publication Date: 2013
Description: This paper investigates the value of various knowledge resources for supporting government agencies in preparing their staff to work on public private partnerships for infrastructure (PPP). Recent trends suggest an increase in government interest in PPPs, but challenges involved in some projects of this kind have brought the role of market-based actors in PPPs into “question.” Analyzing the priorities that transportation experts assign to knowledge sources in the United States (U.S.) provides an indication of the sources that are likely to assist capacity-building for improving the government position in PPPs. This paper includes an overview of the theoretical foundations of the inquiry, analysis of twenty-two semi-structured interviews from professionals working on PPPs in the U.S., and a discussion and conclusion of implications.
