|Abstract: ||The UK’s Private Finance Initiative market is predicted to rise to over £8 billion a year and
there are indications of growing opportunities. PFI creates a long-term income stream and
provides valuable opportunities for portfolio diversification. PFI has evolved at a fast pace
and the momentum is set to continue. However, there are major challenges facing
construction organisations. These include the lack of PFI experts, longer negotiation periods
and tight time schedules to deliver large-scale schemes, high levels of investment and risks
involved and limited knowledge transfer between PFI projects. Concerns over the level of
knowledge sharing have prompted the development and evaluation of a Knowledge Transfer
Framework that encourages construction organisations to transfer PFI knowledge between
projects. It achieves this by building on a questionnaire survey of PFI clients and construction
companies, case studies of companies involved in PFI, and research workshops to validate
the framework developed.|
