Seminar: Efficiency vs. Flexibility in Public-Private Partnerships
The CBS Public-Private Platform continues its autumn seminar series about Public-Private Partnerships with a research seminar with leading Canadian expert on Public-Private Partnerships, Thomas Ross, from Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia.
The seminar is open for all to attend, who is interested in the subject. At the seminar Thomas Ross will present his new paper on PPPs. The paper is on “Efficiency vs. Flexibility in Public-Private Partnerships” (co-author Jing Yan). The paper focuses on what governments can do when it chooses between a PPP project and traditional procurement. According to Ross & Yan, the decision depends (among other things) on the likelihood that changes will be necessary during the contract period.
Thomas Ross is a leading Canadian expert on Public-Private Partnerships. He is a Professor of Regulation and Competition Policy at Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. He is also Director of the Phelps Center for the Study of Business and Government. He has written influential journal articles and book chapters on PPPs.
