Abstract: PPP is a contractual arrangement between a public entity and a private sector party, with clear agreement on shared objectives for the provision of public infrastructure and services which are traditionally provided by the public sector. The method offers a lot of benefit to the government as well as the private entity. Despite this, the use of the technique has been found to pose challenges which militate against it being used. Thus this study was designed to identify the key factors that militate against the successful implementation of Public Private Partnership (PPP) as a strategy for the delivery of projects at the Road and Highway sectors of Ghana. To do this, questionnaires were designed and administered to professionals working at the Ghana Highway Authority, Department of Urban Roads, Department of Feeder Roads, Ministry of Roads and Highways, Consultants and Contractors within the Accra Metropolis (the study area). These respondents were selected using purposive sampling technique. The data collected was analysed using the Statistical Package for Social Scientist Software Package (SPSS) version 16. The results revealed that even though PPP is been used as a procurement technique within the road and highway sector, the rate of utilization is very low. In other words, only few projects are executed using this method. In addition to the above, lack of regulatory and legal framework to back PPP, risk of private partner bankruptcy, lack of government interest as a result of change in government or political instability, lack of public administrative competence in development and control of PPP and lack of appropriate accounting treatment for project PPPs were identified as some of the key challenges. Recommendations were made in the light of the above findings which included establishing a legal and regulatory framework to back PPPs in Ghana.
