INFRASTRUCTURE

LP-Icon-AssuranceOur infrastructure work boosts the capacity and capability of our clients. We act as “critical friend”, helping them to plan strategically, solve complex commercial issues and increase delivery confidence. We have worked closely with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) for several years to manage its Waste Infrastructure Delivery Programme and to develop its Operational Savings Programme, which aims to deliver a minimum of £307 million of savings.

Drawing on the knowledge and insights gained from these projects, we work with central government departments, national agencies and local authorities to develop specialist support for a wider range of infrastructure programmes including highways maintenance, flood management and superfast broadband.

GUIDE TO POTENTIAL CORPORATE VEHICLES

In the current economic climate, local authorities are exploring all avenues, including new commercial opportunities, to deliver public services. To assist local authorities, Local Partnerships has produced the above “guide to potential corporate vehicles” as an introduction to some of the vehicles that can be used for collaboration and the delivery of services. It should be noted that these options are a means to an end, so firstly authorities must decide what it is they wish to achieve, when and with whom.

GUIDANCE ON SUBMITTING A VARIATION

BUSINESS CASE TO DEFRA IN RESPECT OF

A WASTE INFRASTRUCTURE PFI PROJECT

As part of the support to Defra for the Waste Infrastructure Delivery Programme, we have produced the guidance above for local authorities with a Waste Infrastructure PFI Contract which are considering making any changes to their project. Such authorities receive PFI funding from Defra in the form of Waste Infrastructure Grant over the life of the project (typically 25-30 years). If a local authority is considering making a change to the PFI Contract (whether by means of a variation, amendment, waiver of rights, conduct or otherwise), or departing from the Final Business Case which was originally submitted to Defra, it should carefully consider the guidance above. Any queries on this should be directed to Duncan Powell at duncan.powell@local.gov.uk
