Large, complex infrastructure projects are perceived to be prone to cost overruns and delays. These problems often relate more to unrealistic expectations by project sponsors than to poor implementation. An important benefit of PPPs is that project structuring and due diligence impose a discipline at the planning stage that is often absent with traditional procurement. This benefit is often neglected in ex-post analysis that focuses on the relative cost of capital.
