Towards a Framework for the Governance and Delivery of Infrastructure
1.61 KB •
In response to discussions on the need for further study on how to think about infrastructure governance and modality choice at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Senior PPP Officials in Paris on 17-18 February 2014, this paper sets out a draft framework for the public governance and delivery of infrastructure. The ambition is to harness OECD countries’ experiences into a coherent tool that countries can apply to ensure that their infrastructure investment is effective, efficient, transparent, user centric and affordable.
Based on the accumulated infrastructure work of the OECD, including in the areas of Public-Private Partnerships, fiscal policy and governance across levels of government, regulatory policy, integrity and anti-corruption, budgeting, and public sector innovation, this working paper sets out by presenting concepts and challenges for public infrastructure followed by suggested preconditions for good infrastructure governance. Finally it presents an infrastructure decision tree that can guide countries in assessing and balancing their specific sectoral, country, and project needs in order to select a fitting infrastructure delivery modality.
