Guides to PFI Objectives of the 4Ps

The Public Private Partnerships Programme (4Ps) has been established with the express aim of bringing about increased investment in local services through PFI and other private/public sector partnerships. It is intended that such partnership arrangements will enable capital-intensive services to be delivered to local communities in an enhanced and cost-effective way. The 4Ps was initiated by the Local Authority Associations in England and Wales and has all-Party support. It was launched on 11 April 1996.
