Infrastructure using a SPV
Aim of this is to prove:
Having detailed and practical knowledge on Public Private Partnerships, among available infrastructure procurement models.
Explore and appreciate the multifarious perspectives and objectives of project stakeholders.
Understanding risk classifications, the risk management framework, and principles of risk allocation and mitigation.
Understanding project structuring and highlight the necessary steps that need to be taken in order to deliver infrastructure projects.
You have a choice from one of 4 sectors listed below to write up your individual paper, which will be assessed. The term paper is a sector focused case study of PPP project, following a given structure designed for critical reflections on success and failure. Students need to independently research the case from different sources.
1)    Water treatment PPP
2)    Social infrastructure PPP
3)    Telecommunication PPP
4)    Offshore wind farm PPP
Out of all, I would choose Social Infrastructure PPP (number 2), easiest and best.. Social infrastructure includes the construction and maintenance of facilities that support social services. These can include healthcare (medical facilities and ancillary infrastructure), education (schools, universities and student accommodation), and housing.
Based on your independent research, you will write a case study in Part A which provides the background to the case. Part B, C and D are critical reflections and application to your case study. Your coursework has 4 parts with the following weight for word allocation:
Construct a case study of PPP project from one of 3 broad sectors listed below (40%).
1.    Water treatment PPP
2.    Social infrastructure PPP
3.    Telecommunication PPP
4.    Offshore wind farm PPP
A.    Provide a background to your case listing key stakeholders in your chosen PPP case (approximately 10% of the paper)
B.    Critically evaluate the project structure in the context of your case study and its connection with individual perspectives, objectives, and requirements of the various project stakeholders. (approximately 30% of the paper)
C.    Critically evaluate current practices in risk allocation from the perspectives of various stakeholders in the context of your case, are risks appropriately allocated and is there any room for further improvement?  (approximately 30% or 900 words)
D.    As a technical advisor to the lender in your case, what are the most critical issue that you wish to bring to the attention of your client. Provide an Excel financial model to strengthen your argument.  (approximately 30% of the paper)
(Approximately with the following WEIGHT ALLOCATION: Part A – 10%; Part B – 30%; Part C – 30%; Part D– 30%)
Important notes:
– You can use both theoretical and practical examples to illustrate your points.
– You will need to use references in order to substantiate your discussions or when you quoted figures.
– Reference to industry reports is acceptable but priority should be given to academic
–these are possible references you could use! but feel free to outsource–
