An excellent discussion tonight on PFI disputes, hosted by IPFA, on the recent White-Fraiser report. The report provides a framework for change and thought provoking commentary on the successful delivery of PFI projects and ultimately the avoidance of formal disputes. It was clear that there will be some work to do to change mind-sets, approaches and to provide collaborative outcomes. With uncertainty over performance and with the fast approaching exit and expiry of many projects, disputes will inevitably still arise. The key, for all parties and their advisers, is to ensure that those disputes are professionally articulated and managed, and that project objectives and outcomes remain central.
