Abstract

For numerous public-private partnership (PPP) infrastructure projects, transfer is the last phase of the concession period. It has been observed that unsuccessful management of transfer phase leads to returned projects with substandard residual value and status. Unfortunately, both practice experience and research on how to manage transfer phase is limited. Serving as part of a systematic research on transfer phase of PPP project, this paper aims to develop a transfer success (TS) criteria framework. In this paper, TS is defined as the integration of transfer product success (TPS) and transfer management success (TMS). TPS focuses on realizing the goal and purpose of transfer, while TMS evaluates the process-based performance of transfer management. A series of TS success criteria are identified from literature, and then classified according to the definition of TS. It is hoped that the proposed TS criteria framework would aid the government to receive project assets with desirable state; thereby succeeding post-transfer operation of the infrastructure can be achieved.
