Details

The voluntary code of conduct sets out the basis on which public and private sector partners agree to work together to make savings in operational Public Private Partnership (PPP) contracts. The code applies to all PPP that signatories are parties to, such as Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contracts, PF2 and other variants of PPP contracts.

The code sets out commitments from both public and private sector parties on constructive engagement, flexibility and improving operational efficiency. These commitments will support an overall improvement in contract management relationships and behaviours and the creation of a more effective working environment between customers and suppliers. This will help the public and private sectors work together on existing contracts for schools, hospitals and many other public infrastructure projects.

The launch of the code forms part of the government’s wider work on reducing the cost of PFI deals under the Operational Savings programme, which has already achieved savings of over £1.5 billion. It has been developed with the support and engagement of relevant trade bodies and a cross-section of lenders, investors, construction contractors and facilities management providers. All parties to PPP contracts should be able to sign up to these commitments which reflect best practice in the sector.
