|Abstract: ||public private partnership (PPP) arrangements on different project typologies vary between countries
and regions. Studies confirm the lack of success on PPP approach on public housing project (PHP).
The main challenge to PPP-PHP success has been identifying, analysing, categorizing and matching
CSFs that are likely to influence the PPP-PHP outcome. The purpose of this paper is to identify the
CSFs that influence PPP-PHP delivery in Ghana. This is premised on the theoretical implications that
understanding the factors that influence the success on PPP-PHP projects is critical.
Design/methodology/approach – By adopting a 16 CSFs from literature and using a questionnaire
survey, the factors that are critical to success on PPP-PHP approach in Ghana were identified.
The questionnaires were administered on participants that have been involved in PPP-PHPs in Ghana.
Findings – The results revealed six CSFs that are critical towards success on PPP-PHPs in Ghana.
The results also do not show significant variability in the agreement by the public and private stakeholder.
Practical/implications – The findings present useful lessons for parties in PPP-PHPs in Ghana to
focus their attention to engender the needed atmosphere towards successful delivery in Ghana in the
formulation of policies, decision frameworks and delivery strategies.
Originality/value – The study presents a critical success model that is applicable to PPP-PHP
delivery in Ghana and potentially to other developing countries with similar socio-economic, political
and organizational characteristics especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. It also affirms the fact that CSFs
are contextual to project typologies and that different project types will reveal CSFs with varying
significance in ranking. The findings should help in the development of efficient frameworks and
policies for successes on PPP-PHPs in Ghana.|
