Privatisation: Shifting From Public to Private Sector

REF: F2092  DATES: 8 - 12 Dec 2019  VENUE: Muscat (Oman)  FEE: 2500 


This module focuses on the relationship between the public and the private sectors of the economy. Its perspective will take as given the range of activities in which a state is involved, and we will focus our attention on how provision of the relevant goods, services and infrastructures is made.

This course aims to introduce you to the main forms of cooperation between the state and the private sector in the provision of public goods and services. It does so both by examining the theoretical bases of public-private partnerships, and by an analysis of a number of recent case studies of PPP in action.

The course is focused primarily around the following two questions:

  • What are the role and the duties of a state – which goods and services should be guaranteed to the population when employing financial resources raised through taxation?
  • Which provisions should be made directly by the state, or instead outsourced to the private sector operating on its behalf?

Course Objectives:

  • outline how state functions have evolved over time.
  • discuss how the public sector typically relates to the private sector for the provision of public goods.
  • explain and assess the main features of alternative public-private relationships.
  • quantify the size of PP markets across the world and explain the source of PP regulations.
  • assess the merits and limitations of alternative procurement legislations and procedures.
  • identify the goals of the procuring administration.
  • select the main dimensions for effective procurement design.
  • describe concession contracts and their rationale, and assess different types.
  • identify some of the merits and limitations of a PPP contract.
  • explain the differences underlying alternative PPP models in different sectors.
  • identify the main economic principles behind PPP case studies.
  • explain the main reasons underlying privatization of public assets.
