Private Finance Initiative
The Private Finance Initiative industry was developed by the government of the United Kingdom, aimed at delivering publically owned infrastructure by the private sector, including Highways, Rail, Hospitals, Schools, and even Social Housing. It has now spread across many European, Asian countries, and the United States and Canada supporting wider programmes of privatisation and deregulation.
Internationally Focused Performance
Since apm's inception, it has been involved in some of the largest Private Finance Initiative projects in the UK and the Netherlands. For example, we provided advice and support to the High Speed Rail industry in the Netherlands to both the Dutch Government and a private consortia, UK Government buildings and infrastructure, and a British Defence vehicles contract.
As part of our work with the Dutch Government, we have been both a guiding and a driving force behind the development and enhancement of performance-based contracts in the Rail industry, in which availability targets are high. Through our Performance Modelling approach, we were also able to minimise and relocate maintenance rapid response teams, demonstrating an overall improved Whole Life Cost.
More recently, we have provided independent advice to the UK Highways Agency as part of the largest Highways Private Finance Initiative to-date, supporting Risk Management, Value for Money and Robustness of Price exercises, and ensuring systems and reporting compliance by the preferred bidder.
