National Audit Office report: Making changes in Operational PFI Projects

Making changes in Operational PFI Projects

“PFI deals have proven to be flexible to change and, when considering that these deals will span a number of decades, that is essential. Now that an increasing number of PFI deals are in their operational stage, and change will inevitably be needed over time, the public sector has to raise its game to get a better outcome and use the guidance and resources available, particularly as changes made to operational projects have not always provided value for money.”
