ABSTRACT

This article aims a scientific analysis about the relationship between the Public- Private-Partnership and the Public Contract Regulations in the United Kingdom. First, the meaning, the legal foundation and the model of Public-Private- Partnership (PPP) in Great Britain were put in order. Second, the structure and main contents of the Public Contract Regulations(PCR) were adjusted. The relationship between the PPP and the PCR in the United Kingdom was analysed on this basis. Followings are the results of this analysis. The PPP is widely used in the United Kingdom, but there is no special regulation only for the PPP. The PCR specify the procedures to be followed in relation to the award of public works contract, public supply contracts and public services contract. The contracting authorities are listed in regulation 3 of the PCR. The contracting authorities for the PPP contracts have to be one of the authorities in regulation 3 of the PCR. The PCR apply whenever a contracting authority seeks offers in relation to proposed public works contract, public supply contracts, public services contract, framwork agreement or dynamic purchasing system according to the regulation 5 of the PCR. But the PPP contracts are such a complex situation as to choose one of the contract type regulated in the PCR. For the purpose of seeking offers in relation to a proposed public contracts, a contracting authority shall use the open procedure or the restricted procedure in all circumstances, except where it may use the negotiated procedure or the competitive dialogue procedure. This principle of contracting procedures have to be applied in PPP contracts. A checklist about how to select a contract award procedure in PPP contracts was formed in this article.
