The PPP policy aims to enhance pace of development by attracting more resources, availing investment opportunities to the private sector and supporting prudent public debt management
A message from PPP Unit Message /
The government of Kenya has always had strong partnerships with the private sector in various infrastructure projects.
In the power sector in particular, Independent Power Producers (IPPs) have strongly augmented government role of supplying modern energy to the country over the past two decades.
Keen to open up even more sectors for these critical partnerships, the government adopted the PPP Policy in 2011 to clearly articulate this resolve. Through this Policy, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) were identified as a priority mechanism to enable the government attract more private investment in delivery of public infrastructure.
This policy aims to enhance pace of development by attracting more resources, availing investment opportunities to the private sector and supporting prudent public debt management.
The Policy provided the context for enactment of the PPP Act of 2013 that established the Institutional and Legal Framework under which to implement PPP Projects. Following the enactment of the Act, there has been a strong demand by public entities in the country, both at the County as well as National Level in delivering projects through the PPP Model.
With a National PPP Pipeline of sixty-six (66) projects, a number in which commercial contracts have been signed and others under procurement, Kenya is promising to be a truly vibrant PPP market.
Through this website, the PPP Unit will strive to engage and keep our diverse stakeholders well appraised of the PPP Program in Kenya.
