Abstract: The Public Sector Comparator (PSC) is part of the evaluation process used to determine the preferability of Public Private Partnerships in public infrastructure projects. It provides a reliable means of demonstrating value for money and cost savings (Value for Money).

The PSC estimates the hypothetical risk-adjusted cost if a project were to be financed, owned and implemented by government. The PSC is developed in accordance with the required output specification. It is expressed as the Net Present Cost of a projected cash flows based on specific discount rate over the required life of the contract. The construction of a PSC is recommended to test whether a private investment proposal offers Value for Money in comparison with the most efficient form of public procurement.

Components of a PSC are described and discussed in the Thesis, and a detailed Public Sector Comparator calculation for a hypothetical project of „Administrative building“ is constructed.
