World-class Performance Based Maintenance Contracts – Recent Trends

Performance Based Maintenance Contracting (PBMC) for roads has been used for many years in response to the pressure for the road agencies/administrations to improve efficiency and provide better maintenance services. This pressure from the decision-makers has resulted in further advancements, which in turn require rethinking PBMC. Several countries are outsourcing the maintenance services and it is vital to have a healthy market of service providers. The paper will discuss the findings from two recent research projects, which studied several progressive countries and progress internationally in the provision of maintenance services. The objective of the paper is to present the recent international trends in PBMC. It benchmarks and monitors international practices and presents results, challenges, practices and benefits from using PBMC world-wide. The paper concludes that for full benefits and satisfactory outcomes of PBMC it is important to maintain a functional service provider market.
