Many PFI Contracts and similar long term public private partnerships (PPPs) are approaching the end of their contractual life, which will pose a number of challenges for those authorities to whom the assets will revert, especially where project management resources and PFI expertise are in short supply. The National Audit Office has recently highlighted the risks to value for money and continuity of service if assets are not returned in a satisfactory condition.

In this webinar, Browne Jacobson and Agilia look at the key issues and best practice, which every affected authority needs to know to assist them in the management of this challenge and the development of a strategy for preservation or replacement of assets and the re-procurement of key services.

In this webinar we talk through the following:

  • Developing successful exit strategies
  • Managing the contract expiry process
  • Key legal issues:
  • Handback condition
  • Surveys
  • Asset, data and staff transfer
  • Successor arrangements

We address the particular challenges faced in the handback of accommodation to public sector ownership and management (including the impact upon Academies of the end of local authority school projects), as well as specific challenges posed in areas such as waste and housing.

Your experienced panel of speakers are:

  • Andy Rose - senior advisor at Agilia
  • Amar Qureshi - CEO and co-owner at Agilia
  • Mike Mousdale - partner at Browne Jacobson
  • Craig Elder - partner at Browne Jacobson
  • Andrew Hopkin - partner at Browne Jacobson

Agilia and Browne Jacobson are working together to offer PFI and PPP authorities a comprehensive service to manage this key challenge in the coming years.

The webinar is available on-demand, with links shared on our LinkedIn page.
