Getting Infrastructure Right

A framework for better governance

image of Getting Infrastructure Right

Infrastructure poses many challenges, from technical and budgetary concerns to delivery and governance issues. But it is crucial for both productivity and inclusiveness. Businesses rely on modern infrastructure to remain competitive, while society depends on good infrastructure to ensure equal opportunity and equal access to services for citizens. Good governance of public infrastructure can thus yield substantial benefits for all. Based on a survey of 27 countries, this report provides an overview of current practices in infrastructure governance and presents practical tools to help policy makers better manage infrastructure.

The state of play in infrastructure governance

This Chapter assesses current practices in OECD members and partners countries and links them to the different dimensions of infrastructure governance. The analysis shows that for some dimensions good practices are common among all countries, such as the use of value for money mechanisms and consultation procedure. However, many other practices recommended by the framework are less present and demand attention. Deficits can be identified, for example, with respect to long term planning, prioritisation and coordination practices, as well as transparent and systematic decision making. In general no single best practice country group can be identified which reflects the importance of improving infrastructure governance across countries.
