Procurement, Contracts and Project Finance Workshop


The course commences with an overview of how the whole project financing approach works and what is involved – anticipating the content of the subsequent sessions.  These financings are a spider’s web of contracts, so we then look at the complex issue of cross-border contractual enforcement, including Alternative Dispute Resolution Procedures.  We then take a particular look at infrastructure projects, including PFI/PPP, which have characteristics that differ from other contexts of limited recourse transactions.  The course then moves into the structuring of the high-risk development phase of the project, followed by the structuring of risk management during the operating phase.  Having identified the structuring of the project and its risk management, we then look at both the financier’s control of the project to promote debt serviceability, and the Sponsor’s perspective of maximising the investment returns of the project.
