  1. Public Private Partnership + EU Funds in Poland general overview and the future outlook

  2. PPP as an instrument for implementation of regional policy • PPP Platform - national PPP taskforce • Model of PPP - EU grant blending procedure • Governmental experience with PPP • Municipal experience with PPP • Hybrid projects in Poland • PPP in the 2014-2020 financial perspective

  3. PPP as an instrument for implementation of regional policy • National Strategy for Regional Developmentsuggests public private partnerships as a desired instrument for investments at the regional and national level • There is a need to maximise economic effectiveness of public infrastructure during the investment and maintenance phase – Value for Money • PPP model requires better preparation of projects but provides a higher standard of public services

  4. PPP as an instrument forimplementation of regional policy Financing of projects • Not all infrastructure investments are capable of being financed by the private sector without public support – a need to implement availability payments and/or investment subventions. • EU funds cannot be used for availability payments but they are a very effective source (component) of investment subventions The legal framework is sufficient • Although there is a lack of verified solutions and standardized procedures as well as answers to doubts and problems faced (e.g. step in rights; contracts) Lack of experience • Both at the governmental and municipal level – learning by doing is the suggested solution • Municipalities were self-learners without government support but this has changed recently

  5.

  9. How to combine UE application with selection of private partner process and not to loose grant? • The greatest difficulty is the need to reconcile • the two parallel processes: • applying for EU funds • and selecting the private partner. Unknown amount of loan / financing costs Unknown services prices (Gate fees) Unknown amount of private financing Unknown revenues thevicious circle Unknown financing gap Unknown amount of subsidies 10

  10. Governmental experience with PPP (without EU grant) Concession infrastructure projects: • A1 motorway (two stretches of the total length 152 km, concession dated 1997, stretch I operational since 2008, stretch II since November 2011) • A2 motorway (two stretches of the total length 256 km, concession dated 1997, stretch I operational since 2004, stretch II since December 2011) • A4 motorway (one stretch of 60 km, concession dated 1997, operational since 1996 • New A1 and A2 motorway stretches despite strategic location in central Poland proved unsuccessful – procurement finalised but the financial closure was not reached Construction of The Court at Nowy Sącz City • under preparation

  11. Municipal experience with PPP Source: MRD

  12. Hybrid projects in Poland • Waste Management System for the City of PoznańMRD employees participate in the competitive dialogue procedure as members of the support team for the City. The preparation of this investment has shown how complex is the path of applying for an EU grant for a PPP project. • Thermal Baths in Gostynin– involvement of experts from Jaspers • Thermal Baths in Solec Zdrój – financial closure reached

  13. Thermal Baths in Solec – Zdrój City Hybrid (PPP + UE), project is now under construction. Financial closure reached. Both co-financing agreement (2011) and concession agreement (2010) were signed. Beneficiary of the project: Solec – Zdrój Municipality. Responsibilities of the private partner: design, build, finance, operate. Remuneration of theprivate partner - user payments. Agreement signed for 27 years. Total eligible cost of €4 million, including: EU funds € 1.7 million pub. national contribution € 0.30 million private contribution € 2 million ~1 EUR = 4 PLN

  14. October 6th 2011, the European Commission unveiled a legislative package for cohesion policy for 2014-2020. Then, on the basis of this material the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Poland to the EU in Brussels, developed proposals for the new regulations regarding PPP projects, including: PPP should be clearly recognised as one of the potential delivery modes for the CSF Funds; Creation of the separate definition of ‘beneficiary’ under PPP operation. The proposed definition prevents the private body under a PPP operation from being the beneficiary as under PPP operations the party initiating the operation is the public body while the party implementing it is the private body; Creation of legal basis for the situation, when the beneficiary is a public body, but on the basis of PPP contract the expenditure is incurred and paid by a private sector body, which is responsible for construction works.
