Abstract : Internationally, the demand for infrastructure continues to grow as repressed needs of developed countries and new needs of emerging countries proliferate. This requirement for infrastructure provision causes great pressure on public expenditure. Member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), for example, devote on average nearly one-fifth of capital formation to infrastructure (1:3). The increased need for infrastructure coupled with debt and tax limitations on governments which restricts their ability to provide capital for infrastructure projects has led to the involvement of the private sector in comprehensive contracting partnerships.
