Remit & Mission

A unique public sector remit

Partnerships UK (PUK) is a public private partnership formed in 2000 out of HM Treasury. We are a joint venture that bridges the gap between public and private sectors, with a unique public sector remit to work with Central Government, Devolved Administrations and Local Authorities:

To support and accelerate the delivery of infrastructure renewal, high quality public services and the efficient use of public assets through better and stronger partnerships between the public and private sectors.
The success of these partnerships is fundamental to Government's investment and modernisation programme.

Dedicated to the public sector

PUK is itself a public private partnership and was designed to become a permanent “centre of excellence” for commercial skills exclusively available to the public sector. Typically our staff have many years experience of working on public infrastructure transactions, special delivery and investments. Since its inception, PUK has been involved with many of the most complex projects and programmes undertaken by the public sector in the UK. This experience provides us with a depth of know-how and practical experience of successful public investment policy delivery.
