Public Private Partnerships of New Zealand


Public–private partnerships come under the National Infrastructure Unit of the Treasury, which helps support departments and agencies in the development of PPPs. The unit is intended to be ‘the focal point for economic and financial assessment and advises on PPPs and will assist government agencies more generally. It will ensure application of these guidelines. The relevant PPP authority will also promote best practice PPPs by absorbing and disseminating the lessons of experience and consulting with other governments on their experience and practice.’

The New Zealand Government operates its public–private partnerships under the Gateway Review Process, which is a cabinet mandate. The review process looks at programmes and projects at key decision points in their life cycle as part of a quality control process.
