Abstract: The establishment of an appropriate guide for the participants in the implementation of public-private partnership projects is considered very important to the success of the process. The objective of this study is to identify the factors required for successive management of public-private partnership projects and develop a framework that will guide public sector participants in order to create innovation in the process. A qualitative research approach was used through case study analysis and an extensive review of past studies to determine the parameters that are required for the success of public-private partnership projects. The practices and status in some selected countries were reviewed to understand the process and establish best practices from those experiences. Also, three local cases were analysed to determine the parameters responsible for success and failure of those projects. The framework developed was then validated through questionnaire survey using the experts on public-private partnership projects. This study produced a public-private partnership implementation framework for the public participants in the project delivery. This framework also proposed a new agency to audit the projects' implementation process.
