Value for Money ex-post assessment for PPPs

Jose Oliveros made this Freedom of Information request to Infrastructure Australia

The request was refused by Infrastructure Australia.

From: Jose Oliveros


Dear Infrastructure Australia,

This email constitutes an application for documents to be released under the Freedom of Information Act.

I need to request a copy of the reports called "ex post value for money assessment" which were notified of their existence in the academic article "How To Attain Value for Money:
Comparing PPP and Traditional Infrastructure Public Procurement" by Philippe Burger and Ian Hawkesworth. In this article it is stated that Australia make ex-post value for money assessment of all PPP projects.(page 109, OECD journal on budgeting). I request the list of the PPP projects' current status and the reports of the ex-post evaluations.

Yours faithfully,
