This book looks at what drives effective management of public-private partnerships (PPP). It examines widely cited Singaporean cases pertaining to successful PPPs as well as those in failure (and subsequently contracted back in the public sector provision) in diverse areas of public service, such as water services, educational services, trade and logistical data services, residential services, acquisition and maintenance of military systems, research and development services, infrastructure, and sport services.

The book begins each case with an overview (e.g., project goals (motivators), types of PPP, stakeholders, time period, assigned budget, and capital planning) and then specifically discusses critical success factors and/or risk factors, pertaining to the decisions to proceed with on-going PPPs or to return to self-operation (in-house public production) of services later, respectively. The book concludes with a discussion of lessons learned from Singaporean cases and contexts of PPPs and suggests more feasible strategies and conditions towards successful collaborative governance between public agencies and private counterparts for the new century.

This book will appeal especially to public policy makers.
