In brief: PFI guide produced for education sector

Stephenson Harwood has launched a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) guide for the higher and further education sectors. Author Peter Walters said his booklet was aimed at providing university and college professionals guidance through the “procedural maze of PFI project procurement”. The firm is advising the two largest PFI projects, which have been designated as “Pathfinders” by the Further Education Funding Council, in the hope they will set a precedent for all future PFI projects in the sector.
