Critical success factors for W&WRRU P3 energy projects include:
– Identifying a political champion who can maintain the project’s momentum, involve stakeholders, and obtain buy-in and commitment from local government, top managers, the workforce, and the public
– Creating, with stakeholder support, an action plan with concrete goals
– Selecting the right project delivery mechanism using risk tools and value-for-money analysis
– Undertaking a procurement process that leads to a win-win contract with clear terms and flexibility for contingencies
– Monitoring contract performance to address issues as they arise
