This edited collection looks at acountability, openness and the the two-tier workforce in relation to public private partnerships.

This report examines the challenges to the efficient, equitable and accountable delivery of public services through public private partnerships. Taking ippr's Commission on Public Private Partnerships as its starting point, it examines recent Government progress and suggests further improvements.

Issues addressed include:

  • value for money: how the Private Finanace Initiative has performed and how that performance can be improved
  • work force issues in PPPs: assessing the extent of the 'two-tier workforce' and the options for ending it
  • accountability: how to make PPPs more open and responsive to their users.
