Title: The role of public private partnership in achieving developmental objectives at Accra Metropolitan Assembly
Authors: Kwarteng, Emmanuel
Issue Date: 18-Nov-2015
Abstract: Public Private Partnerships (PPP) is a mechanism for government to procure and implement public infrastructure and/ or services using the resources and expertise of the private sector. These are also employed at the Municipal Assembly level to enhance development. These researches therefore sought to assess ways Public Private Partnership can enable AMA achieve accelerated development. The following proposed objectives firstly assessing the level of awareness, secondly identifying ways to promote PPP and finally identifying potential challenges impeding the implementation of PPP at AMA. Quantitative analysis technique was used in analyzing and interpreting the data. Data from direct fieldwork observations and the use of questionnaires provided relevant information for analysis. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) analytical tool was used to analyze the data gathered from the survey. Findings reveal that PPP is employed at AMA quiet often in the area of Environmental cleaning and at other times in Road and Building construction or Revenue Collection. Corporate Funding Mechanism is often used. The General Assembly of AMA authorizes a PPP project but the key challenge is Bureaucracy which creates a long bureaucratic process for PPPs. PPPs at AMA have not been at their best and therefore need to be improved, however PPP has contributed significantly to achieving Developmental goals of AMA. Recommendations are Simplifying bureaucratic processes of PPP, Time involved in the process of PPP should be reduced, Feasible and workable PPPs should be employed as well as create more awareness of PPP.
