COMPANY AND PROJECT EVALUATION MODEL FOR PRIVATELY PROMOTED INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS

Build-operate-transfer (BOT) and build-operate-own (BOO) are two alternative forms of project development that have resulted from decreases in government funding and increases in demand for new (or rehabilitation of existing) infrastructure projects. The authors of this paper introduce the Desirability Model--a multiattribute evaluation model that provides a logical, reliable, and consistent technique for assessing the capability of a private-sector company to become a promoter for a given project and for determining the attractiveness of an infrastructure project to be actively promoted by a given company. The proposed model produces two indices--one for company competencies and one for project attractiveness--that rely on the actual performance levels of 23 company and project attributes. Model validation is accomplished via comparison of indices to the expert holistic evaluation of 19 company and project profiles. Example applications of the model include the evaluation of the Eurotunnel and an illustration of how sensitivity analysis can identify strategies for project improvement.
