Abstract: This study examined the project planning and control parameters for a public-private partnership sustainable environment and power (SEP) critical infrastructure project (waste-to-energy initiative) in Lagos State, Nigeria, taking into cognisance the state's critical infrastructure planning limitations, and the project's role as model for Nigeria's federal and state governments. State-approved project time and costs were 15 months and US$6 million dollars, respectively. Techno-economic and environmental conversion factors as well as project financial and work schedule data were obtained through literature, questionnaire and site inspection. Project assessment and earned value management (EVM) methodology were used. The results showed annual waste-to-energy generation potentials of 2.37~2.85 TWh for electricity and 4.75 TWh for district heating, electricity revenue of US$187.93~226.0 million, estimated cost at completion of $7.31 million, and estimated completion time of 17 months. The study concluded that in spite of the project being completed over budget and behind schedule, the SEP critical infrastructure project was viable and a suitable template for waste management in Nigeria.
