Formation for governments

 

Introduction and objectives

Disseminating best practices among governments related to the management of PPP as an instrument of economic policy and infrastructure development lies at the heart of our services.

In addition to our open courses (in-class and on line), our activity includes customized training and in-class training for public agencies and governmental entities, for all levels of government: central, regional and local.

Our training approach includes from basic training and general concepts to courses highly specialized in different areas of the management process of PPP programs and projects (analysis and selection of projects, contract structuring, tender processes, contract management, etc.).

The aim of our customized training offer for governments is to help the development of infrastructure and services under PPP schemes in an efficient way: obtaining the maximum value for money of the projects, that is to say, better services with lower costs or lower budgetary impact. In fact, this is reflected in the following objectives or goals:

  • greater reliability of the processes and greater interest for the projects from the private investor / developer
  • increased affordability
  • greater control on risks and uncertainties that may impact projects

Target audience

The target audience of our courses and training activities for the governments and “public sector” of the PPPs are the different agencies and units which have a role in a PPP process:

  • Procuring authorities promoting infrastructures and services, at any level of government.
  • Treasury Departments, at any level of government.
  • Procurement departments and/or PPP Units, at any level of government.
  • Public financial agencies involved in PPP finance.
  • Internal legal services of public administrations with the responsibility of ensuring compliance with the legal framework.
  • Supervision and evaluation agencies: general auditors/national audit offices, public controllersetc.

Training modalities

We believe that in most cases the interested department or agency will prefer that courses are in-class and at their centres.

In any case, we may also provide custom on-line training courses, through our own Learning Management System (LMS), with greater time flexibility and virtual connection through our on-line conference system.

Courses types

The courses can be of diverse duration and intensity: main or “essential” courses, seminars of short duration and workshops.

Other commitments

  • Advanced technology. Virtual connection though on-line conference system.
  • Access to our data base of reading references.
  • Training delivered by national and international experts.
  • Self-assessment, including the possibility of individual assessment and recommendations.
  • Free access to annual updates of the materials depending on the training contract specifics.

PPP Certificate training and Certificate +

The PPP Certification Program of APMG, (an innovation of the World Bank and other multilateral banks) aims to promote the knowledge of best practices in the management of PPP programs and projects at global level, offering the possibility of obtaining a PPP professional accreditation, the Certified PPP Professional (CP3P©).

K-infra has developed its own courses for the preparation of the CP3P© and offers its courses on-site / in-house for your organization.

If you want more information about our courses on the CP3P© go to APMG PPP Certification Program.

You can also check more information about the above mentioned program and about the PPP Guide by clicking here.

K-Infra also offers to governments, the possibility of a tailored made course based on the methodology and fundaments of the Guide of the CP3P© program. Our school can develop tailored courses based on the PPP life cycle methodology of the mentioned Guide and adapted to the local environment, so that every government / agency may see how the own local PPP framework compares and/or reflects global standard process and practices.

Our concept of “Certificate +”, consists in providing training for the certification examinations, and at the same time to provide practical training focused on the operative and legal framework of your own country or location.

Other training areas and themes

Next we describe the course tracks and types of courses that we offer. Obviously, any course can be customized based on some of these topics and knowledge areas, or developing a course that fits entirely to your organization needs.

The class hours and length of each course will be adjusted according to your requirements.
