Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper aims to provide an overview of these changes in infrastructure planning in the United States of America, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. This paper argues that the approaches differ substantially with regard to market involvement: the goals differ between attracting private funding and stimulating innovative solutions, the timing differs between early and late involvement and the risks and responsibilities could be distributed by outsourcing or shared by partnering. A strategy for the Dutch government could be to focus less on contracts and more on contacts, leading to more cooperation with the market in partnering arrangements.
