It will discuss the need to carry out PBC financial assessments and will present a recently developed model to carry out such assessments. Topics to be covered include:
- Performance-based Contracts (PBC) concept, classification, comparisons
- Contractor’s and Employer’s responsibilities
- Performance measures to define service level
- World Bank Standard Procurement Document for Output- and Performance-Based Road Contract (OPBRC)
- Risk sharing between the public and private sectors

The lecture will be especially interesting for scholars and students interested in Public-Private Partnerships, Built Environment and Infrastructure Project Financing.
