New Zealand Public Private Partnership Model Review (January 2021)

The New Zealand Infrastructure Commission, Te Waihanga review into the New Zealand Public Private Partnership (PPP) Model began in the Treasury’s Infrastructure Transactions Unit in mid-2019 and was substantially completed in mid-2020. The review involved extensive workshops with relevant PPP stakeholders and has relied on its engaged third-party consultants to undertake substantive parts of the work relied upon to complete the review. Te Waihanga acknowledges Advisian, Bell Gully, Aurecon and KPMG for their significant contributions to the review.

The Review discusses the key issues identified through the review process and identifies a number of areas that will be considered by Te Waihanga as part of the future development of the New Zealand PPP Model and related guidance.

It should be noted that this Review preceded the Interim Review of the Transmission Gully Project, which is being conducted by an international expert and overseen by the Commission. The findings of the Transmission Gully review will supplement the findings of this report and be further considerations in the ongoing development of the NZ PPP model.

Delivering on the service promise: 25 years of Public Private Partnerships in Australia and New Zealand (April 2020)

Infrastructure Partnerships Australia has released an independent research report investigating the operating performance of social infrastructure Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in Australia and New Zealand.

The research report, commissioned by Infrastructure Partnerships Australia and completed by the University of Melbourne, has found that PPPs are delivering substantial benefits to providers and users of social infrastructure PPPs.

Te Waihanga welcomes the findings of this report as a useful contribution to the body of knowledge on PPPs.
