    Abstract

    The construction industry landscape in Ireland is changing and the traditional method of procurement to deliver exchequer sponsored projects has changed to a public private partnership (PPP) procurement option. This emerging procurement option is posing a number of challenges for capital projects in general in Ireland and in particular the potential to deliver a capital programme in higher education. This research examines how to make the PPP procurement option more accessible for all parties as the PPP programme is advanced in the third level education sector. The barriers and opportunities that exist in using PPP as the delivery option for new buildings in the third level education sector in Ireland are outlined. An examination of risk management processes as part of PPP procurement of new facilities in higher education in Ireland is presented. Some recommendations on how to overcome the challenges that higher education faces in meeting its future needs though the PPP alternative are outlined.
