Outsourcing, contracting out and public private partnerships (PPP) are central to the recent public-sector reform agenda and are routinely embraced by governments in Australia and elsewhere. In particular, PPPs have become a major means of delivering services and new infrastructure.
This unit introduces the historical background, theoretical underpinnings, and critical debates surrounding the use of contracting, outsourcing and PPPs in the public sector. Drawing on Australian and international examples, the unit critically analyses contracting arrangements and PPPs in relation to legitimacy and accountability, value for money, risk and good governance.
