Improving PFI through collaborative working

PFI is a key mechanism for procuring UK public services. It is undoubtedly effective, having better aligned the remuneration of the supply chain with the value that the demand chain seeks from its facilities, and it is increasingly a good example of Be’s vision in action. Be produced this paper as a basis for dialogue with HM Treasury and other decision makers to seek to improve the PFI process still further. It also aimed to provide advice to member firms to apply collaborative working better within PFI projects and to provide further substantive evidence that collaborative working reliably delivers better value-for-money in all respects.
