Conflict of interest: how corporations that profit from privatisation are helping write UN standards on PPPs Briefing by Public Services International to UNECE Working Party on PPPs

The UNECE Working Party on PPPs is attempting to create guiding principles and international standards on PPPs. With this in mind, the UNECE established a Roster of PPP Experts, “open to PPP practitioners with relevant experience in delivering PPP programmes” 5 to serve as advisors and enablers for the process. An analysis of this Roster conducted by PSI found that 190 of the 360 “Experts” named on the roster, come from the private sector; civil society representation is virtually non-existent; workers and unions, who have first hand experience in dealing with PPPs and face the consequence of failures, are entirely missing from the list of experts and advisory functions...PSI also presented a series of brief case studies on the practices of companies represented on the UNECE Roster of PPP Experts and Business Advisory Board, examining their past involvement in PPPs and analysing aspects of their financial practices.
