In 2005, the Australian Centre for Public Infrastructure published a report that reviewed the operation and performance of public private partnerships (PPPs) in developed economies worldwide. The report was updated in 2006 and will be reviewed and updated again in 2008. The report identifies a number of important characteristics of PPPs that are often missed in the public debate and these will be the focus of further research endeavour in the coming 12 months.
