Public Private Partnerships (PPP) have been used in the construction industry to deliver critical infrastructure projects in various sectors. PPPs performance improvement is a current stakeholder concern due to numerous project failures. This research compares PPPs transport and health sector infrastructure in the United Kingdom and Ghana to produce a sustainable performance improvement model. The research aim is twofold: first, to develop an empirical performance improvement model for PPP best practice implementation for the UK and Ghanaian transport and health sectors. Secondly, it will examine and compare the UK and Ghanaian PPP transport and health sector stakeholders’ Critical Success Factors (CSF) and risks. A rigorous literature review on complex IPs was conducted into PPP transport and health sectors to identify stakeholders CSF and risks in infrastructure sector projects. Four (4) Delphi expert panels and statistical analysis will be used to identify the CSF and risks for successful implementation. The proposed research will establish valuable information for the public and private sectors’ stakeholder interests when investing in transport and health infrastructure projects through PPP in both the UK and Ghanaian construction industries.
