The Western Australian Government signed up to the National Public Private Partnerships (PPP) Policy and Guidelines (the National Guidelines) at the 29 November 2008 meeting of the Council of Australian Governments.
These Guidelines provide an agreed national framework for the delivery of PPP social infrastructure projects. The objective of the framework is to maximise the efficiency of infrastructure procurement, reduce public and private sector PPP procurement costs and remove disincentives to participate in the infrastructure market.
Similar to other States, the Treasurer is the Minister responsible for PPPs in Western Australia. A specialist PPP team has been established within the Department of Treasury.
The National Guidelines are available on the Infrastructure Australia website. Volume Six of these guidelines include Western Australian specific guidance.
