Ensuring value for money and industry best practice

Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contracts rely on benchmarking and market testing provisions to ensure value for money, service quality, and competitiveness. P2G understands the importance of these provisions and offers expert assistance at every step.


P2G provides comprehensive benchmarking services, comparing the private sector partner’s performance, costs, and quality against industry standards and best practices.
