Do you have a live PFI contract? A clear plan for managing assets and delivering services, including best practice tools is critical for successfully securing efficiencies.

Managing existing PPPs and PFIs and any future partnerships depends on the right support. One well known challenge is ambiguous language around expiry dates on early contracts and how the exit is managed between the public and private sector.

Capacity is limited within the public sector, but that's precisely why it's vital that exit planning is not left too late as this will limit the value and outcomes that can be achieved during and beyond expiry. 

Why Grant Thornton

We can help you secure efficiencies and manage financing.

We provide bespoke advice using recognised NAO and IPA tools to identify opportunities for improving the PFI/PPP contract and deliver better value for money and outcomes, and support negotiations with the private sector. In refinancing, we can advise around optimal structuring to ensure compliance with tax and accounting while preventing value leakage.

We rely on best practice tools to deliver for our clients – for example HMT’s better business case approach and training – which provides a decision-making framework on PFI efficiencies, expiry and follow-on.

We've also written on how both the HMT better business case approach and PPPs can be used for Net Zero and Levelling Up.
