Public Private Partnership Policy and Value for Money Framework
The department is responsible for the development of Queensland Government's Public Private Partnership (PPP) Policy and Value for Money Framework.
This policy applies to the provision of public infrastructure related service delivery that may involve private investment or financing. Private sector involvement in the provision of a public infrastructure need or service should be encouraged in projects where it can be shown that the state will achieve a better value for money outcome.

National PPP guidelines - Queensland Jurisdictional Departure
In November 2008, the Council of Australia Governments (COAG) endorsed the National Public Private Partnership (PPP) policy and guidelines prepared by Infrastructure Australia. The guidelines provide a clear and consistent framework enabling both sectors to work together more effectively when delivering projects across the nation under a PPP model.
Where appropriate, the National PPP guidelines allow state jurisdictions to have minor departures from the national guidelines to allow for differences in how they are applied. Queensland's jurisdictional departures documents providing guidance on the differences between the national PPP guidelines and Queensland's PPP policy.
The Queensland Jurisdictional Departure documents to the national PPP guidelines are:
