Public Private Partnerships in the EU: Widespread shortcomings and limited benefits

The European Court of Auditors (ECA’s) special reports set out the results of its audits of EU policies and programmes, or of management-related topics from specific budgetary areas. The ECA selects and designs these audit tasks to be of maximum impact by considering the risks to performance or compliance, the level of income or spending involved, forthcoming developments and political and public interest. Speaking ahead of the ECA’s report release, PSI Deputy General Secretary, David Boys said: “For decades trade unions, civil society groups and the wider public fought against the failed privatisation agenda. Now that the EU’s very own financial watchdog is clearly saying PPPs are a bad idea, it’s surely time for leaders to take note.”
