About this Database
Our objective is to provide an extensive and readily available evidence base for all projects with a
public:private focus within the UK.
The Database holds details of 861 projects. These projects have all achieved financial close and are primarily PFI schemes, but as the
Database develops over time we will incorporate other forms of PPP and strategic partnerships such as the
NHS Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) and Building Schools for the Future.
In bringing together the Database, we are working closely with HM Treasury and the Private Finance Units of
all the Government Departments, as well as the Welsh Assembly Government, the Scottish Executive and the
Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister in Northern Ireland. We have also received assistance
from 4ps, the PPP Forum, and a number of private sector companies.
Please note that the Database is not intended to be a definitive source of material in relation to PPPs or to
act as a substitute for obtaining appropriate advice in relation to a particular project or purpose. The
attention of users is drawn to the statement of Terms & Conditions.
Populating the database is an ongoing commitment for PUK. We are continually
seeking to build on the information we hold for all the projects already
listed in this Database, as well as adding details of new projects
as and when the data becomes available.
represents a snapshot of these projects at closure
however we are starting to include some operational
data in areas such as benchmarking and insurance.
To ensure the data is historically accurate we have
not re-classified projects or deleted the projects
once they have closed, even if they have been merged
with another project.
If you have any questions or queries relating to the material presented in this Database or wish to contribute
