PPP Database

ESSU has launched a PPP Database on Strategic Service-delivery Partnerships (SSPs) in local government. It covers 35 contracts in corporate, ICT and technical services in Britain with a total value of £7.3 billion with nearly 14,600 staff. The PPP Database consists of seven tables covering SSP contracts, those in procurement, regional distribution, employment models, private sector market share and local authorities which rejected the SSP option.

A Strategic Service-delivery Partnership (SSP) is a long-term, multi-service, multi-million pound Public Private Partnership (PPP) between a local authority and a private contractor. Between 50 to 1,000 staff are transferred to a private contractor or transferred or seconded to a Joint Venture Company (JVC). Contracts are usually ten years with an option for a further five years.

SSPs usually cover ICT and related services such as revenues and benefits, financial and legal services, customer contact centres, human resources, payroll and often include property management. Some SSPs include architectural, highways, engineering and other technical services.

The PPP Database consists of seven Tables:

Table 1: PPP: Strategic Service-delivery Partnerships for local authority ICT, corporate and technical services in Britain (2000-08).

Table 2: SSPs in procurement.

Table 3: Regional distribution of SSPs.

Table 4: Employment model in operational SSPs.

Table 5: Contracts and market share of main contractors in operational SSPs.

Table 6: Summary of operational SSP market share.

Table 7: Local authorities which chose in-house option and rejected SSP.
