Introduction

The PPP Certification Program Guide, referred to as the PPP Guide draws upon the work of many people.  We are particularly grateful to the following groups of contributors;

  • The team of authors, who drafted the PPP Guide and conducted an internal review;
  • The external review panel members, who commented on the draft;
  • The members of the consultative committee, who guided the project;
  • The World Bank Group project team, which managed the development and execution of the program while coordinating among the various teams; and
  • APMG project teams, which managed the product development and implementation.

The team of authors

The PPP Guide was written by leading PPP practitioners with expertise across many infrastructure sectors. Together, the team possesses extensive knowledge that covers all of the regions of the world where PPPs operate, as well as PPP structures with different legal requirements and cultural variations. The team consisted of two lead authors and nine chapter authors that worked in close collaboration with one another. 

The lead author was Andres Rebollo, supported by Richard Foster as Assistant Lead Author. Mr Vinay Venkatesan, an independent consultant, also supported the entire authoring team as a research assistant. 

The table below identifies the authors of each chapter of this PPP Guide.
