Introduction

With the Australia population expected to surge to 30 million by 2031, the pressure is on government departments across Australia to deliver large and complex strategic infrastructure projects in an environment of fiscal constraint where public expenditure is heavily scrutinized. 

However, large infrastructure projects often suffer from significant under-management of risk in practically all stages of the value chain and throughout the life cycle of a project. In particular areas, poor risk assessment and risk allocation early on in the concept and design phrase lead to higher materialized risk and private-financing shortage later on. 

Without in-depth knowledge and effective project handling, managing of PPPs process may lead to failure to meet performance expectations, poor client relationships and poor business reputation. In addition, business risk, potential liabilities, and costs may be incurred due to ambiguities.  

This intensive two-day workshop designed to provide an advanced understanding of projects in the tender process, you will learn more about risk assessment, debt & equity, and particularly, public & private partnerships dealing with the management of major infrastructure projects. You will also gain insights into managing effective PPPs, as well as review multi-disciplinary approach drawing case studies for in-house, outsourced or mixed business services to ensure delivery of high-quality service standards for your partnership. The workshop will address government and public agency concerns about entering partnerships with the private sector in the component parts of the PPP process.

Led by Beverley Honig, who has over 20 years of project management experience in Australia and has delivered more than 200,000 training courses globally, she will provide you with solid insights, comprehensive PPPs frameworks, and real-life case studies. You will also grasp the effective techniques and strategies to confidently manage and negotiate your tender process, and maintain control of your project risk assessment & PPPs delivery to ensure the project is being “Value for money”. By ensuring the scope of services, bidding, and key performance measurement parameters are clearly defined and carefully assessed, you will also be able to ensure accountability to project stakeholders.

Packed with case studies drawn from actual cases and interactive discussion sessions, you will leave this program with comprehensive and in-depth knowledge of the value of PPP project delivery without barriers to accessing the knowledge of models including faster delivery of projects and leveraging the creativity and innovation that can be created by the private sector and public sector.
