NAO publishes report on protecting staff in PPP-PFI deals

On 1 March 2008, the National Audit Office (NAO) released its report entitled “Protecting staff in PPP-PFI deals”.

The NAO has published the following summary of the document: "The report analyses the terms and conditions received by staff working on PPP/PFI contracts in 2004. It examines the extent to which the staff who were formerly in the public sector received different terms and conditions to those received by staff recruited by the contractor. The report presents the results of a 2004 survey of operational PFI deals that covered 67 per cent of PFI deals by capital value at that time. (It is important to note that new Government policies have been introduced since the deals in the survey were signed and therefore the results of the survey cannot be used to draw conclusions on the terms and conditions received by staff working in PFI contracts signed more recently.)"
