As well as producing reports on the value for money of various Private Finance activities, the NAO disseminates good practice through its events, including the annual Private Finance conference, workshops and regular meetings with stakeholders.
In examining several joint ventures, acquisitions and mergers in the public sector in recent years, the NAO has drawn out wider lessons from these individual cases which could benefit other public sector organisations. Useful resources are listed below.
We have published this model to provide guidance to Departments on HMT’s and NAO’s expectations of how they should manage their programmes involving PPP and PFI projects.
Reports produced by the House of Commons’ Committee of Public Accounts (the PAC) following hearings based on our PFI and PPP investigations include nearly 1000 recommendations.
We have collected these recommendations and the related Treasury responses into a PFI and PPP/Privatisation Recommendations database last updated: 19/06/2009.
This current best practice model sets out six functions used to manage complex capital investment programmes, the tasks associated with each, what good looks like, and case studies of how Departments are currently implementing them.
