Performance contracting. Summary of knowledge and recommendations for further research (English)
Abstract [sv]

The Swedish concept "procurement of function" corresponds to performance contracting in Anglo-Saxon countries. The substance is that principal and agent signs a contract over the construction and maintenance of a specific project based on the services provided to future users, i.e. based on performance of the asset. This is in contrast with contracting base on technical qualities of the new road. VTI has reserved funds to provide an overview of current knowledge in this context. Four separate contributions, together with a short summary, are included in this report. One conclusion is that the experiences of this contractual form are much larger in other countries than in Sweden. We therefore have a lot to learn, not least from our closest neighbours Finland and Norway. International experiences indicate a large and growing interest in this form of contracting and provides reason for further development. A second conclusion is that Sweden in general and VTI in particular has important information of direct relevance for the development of efficient performance contracts. This knowledge must, however, typically be structured and organised along other lines than when the original research was undertaken. The institute should therefore seek to adapt the collection of information of relevance for performance contracts so that it fits in to this new framework. This includes issues such as the measurement of road surface quality and assessment of the additional costs for providing better surface quality on the one hand and the user benefits of improved quality on the other.
