Abstract

This report will focus on the use of the Public-private partnership (PPP) form of procurement, specifically the Build Own Operate Transfer (BOOT) method as an alternative method of procurement in developing countries. The report will qualify the use of BOOT procurement as a means of delivering services traditionally provided by the Public. The problem identified and focus of this report is the need for improvement to Jamaican infrastructure. The report will address the correlation between infrastructure and productivity in industry. The benefits derived through improvements to the infrastructure will be illustrated through socio-economic benefits. Economic benefits will also be quantified by using cost function analysis. Through this method it is possible to trace the effects of infrastructure improvements through the private sector production structure and performance and asses the effects of technical change, scale economies and forecast induced demand for employment, material and private capital stock.
