PPP Development Stage – Defining Parameters (Scope)
7.3 Who is involved in defining parameters?
The parameters of the PPP should be developed and agreed by all
participants engaged in the partnership.
Traditionally, the government used to play the most important
role in defining parameters. Later, regulators started to
use private sector consultations. The most recent tendency, however,
shows the position of the consumer to be increasingly influential,
this represented by NGOs, CBOs and consumer organisations.
While the government is best equipped to define the geographical
scope of the PPP project, members of the public are the ones
to determine service requirements. It is especially important
that the voice of the poor be heard and taken into consideration [see
the key parameters issues in 7.5].
