Program DescriptionThe objective of Minas Gerais PPP Programme is to implement projects targeted at the infrastructure and public service provision under long-term contracts with the private sector.


The Programme is coordinated by PPP Unit which has the mission to disseminate the PPP contract method by establishing a Knowledge Center on concepts, processes and opportunities for this new modality under which the government becomes involved in private sector initiatives. Among the providers of these public services are construction companies and consortia or other sponsors. The end user is the population of the State or Government itself.

Implementation Strategy: Consolidation and dissemination of the PPP concept and methodology; Creation of a legal framework with a broad public discussion on the opportunity to count with new tools to provide public services and infrastructure; Creation of a legal structure which provides the guarantees accepted by the private sector; Definition and implementation of successful pilot projects; Integration of multilateral agencies through the provision of institutional capital and as guarantors of the PPP model together with potential operators and financial providers for the services offered by the private sector.
