ABSTRACT

The amount of PFI(Private Finance Initiative) in Korea has increased by about trillion won a year. Along with the expansion of Public-Private Partnership, PFI(Private Finance Initiative) has expanded in many countries. PFI(Private Finance Initiative) has been studied actively these days. Especially the PFI scheme in which private sector only performs public facility’s operating work(運營型 民間投資事業). “System of operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度), one of the PFI scheme in which private sector only performs public facility’s operating work(運營型 民間投資事業) is new scheme in Japan. It was made in 2011, when Act of PFI was revised. In this system, Public sector which own public facility creates a public facility’s operating right, and private sector operates public facility and collects public facility fee. “System of operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度) seems similar “Designated manager system”(指定管理者 制度) that doesn’t need construction stage. In contrast, “system of operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度) is one of the PFI’s scheme, while “Designated manager system”(指定管理者 制度) is delegation of public service. Thus, they can use “System of Operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度) and “Designated manager system”(指定管理者 制度) in Japan at the same public facility. In this case, the merit is expansion of range of work comparing PFI. The other merit is consistency of management ultimately. Because “system of operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度) has such characteristic and merit, we can take a comparative legal example from “System of Operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度) in Japan. To solve problem of Japan’s national finance, “System of Operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度) has appeared. In Korea, public debts have increased rapidly these days. And public financial crisis can be predicted nowadays. So Korean society needs study on “system of operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度). “System of operating right of public facility”(公共施設 等 運営権 制度) has following merits; Firstly, the administrative agency can have inclusive and unilateral responsibility while concrete maintenance responsibility differs at varied situation. Secondly, the ultimate responsibility belongs to public sector. This merits are helpful to maintenance of PFI legal system in Korea.
