Our research shows that there is no set formula for the size and structure of the Procuring Authority team; it can vary from a couple of individuals up to over 50 depending on the complexity of the PPP contract and the type of involvement the Procuring Authority wishes to have. However, it is common for the team to be made up of only a small number of permanent staff (i.e. less than ten, and often less than five), and for external advisors and contractors to be used as necessary. A number of stakeholders interviewed perceived their teams as short staffed, but did not feel that the size of the team hampered effective contract management.
