Public-private partnerships

The term public-private partnerships is usually used for private investment in public projects and/or public co-financing of private projects in the public interest.

As a form of strategic partnership between public and private sector institutions, public-private partnerships can successfully contribute to reducing public expenditure on public services and to maintaining the achieved level of public services, provided that the content of the cooperation, the risk and other contractual relations between the public and private partners are properly defined and the public interest is verified.

A fundamental feature of PPPs is the sharing of risks associated with the investment. The process of choosing the contractor or private partner depends on the selected model.

The municipality, as the public partner, invests in the partnership primarily the fixed assets (buildings with associated land or land) and the cost of preparing the documentation for the selection of the private partner. The private partner realises the investment.

Duration of the public-private partnership:

  • Energy contracts up to 15 years.
  • Tourism projects from 20 to 25 years.
  • Investments in buildings (kindergartens, schools) from 20 to 25 years.

When the PPP expires, the ownership of the entire investment is transferred to the municipality.
