    Regulating Water Services: Sending the Right Signals to Utilities in Chile

    During the 1980s and 1990s the Chilean water and sanitation sector underwent deep reforms so that private capital could finance the huge investments needed to achieve universal ser vice. The regulatory framework put into place cleared the way for massive private equity. But users have also paid the price of transforming the heavily subsidized sector into a self-sustaining industry able to provide universal coverage. This note examines key features of the new regulatory scheme that have contributed to the sustainability of the reforms: a phased approach, an efficient pricing policy and methodology, and expert panels to deal with conflict resolution.

    Managing Contingent Liabilities in Public-Private Partnerships: Practice in Australia, Chile, and South Africa

    Governments that use public-private partnerships (PPPs) to build infrastructure usually acknowledge contingent liabilities. Examples include contingent liabilities regarding early contract termination, or debt and revenue guarantees. Governments can face difficulties as they consider whether or not to assume these liabilities, and how to value, monitor, and limit liability. This report reviews how governments in Australia, Chile, and South Africa have tackled these problems, and explores whether other governments (such as governments with less administrative capacity) should adopt comparable practices. All three countries rely on careful project preparation, competitive bidding, and a review of proposed PPPs by a specialized unit in the...

    The Effects of Privatization on Firms and on Social Welfare: The Chilean Case

    This study analyzes the Chilean privatization process. After a historic review of the privatization process, we examine the 37 Chilean state-owned enterprises (SOEs) that were privatized from 1981-2000 and for which pre-privatization and post-privatization financial, employment and production data are available. We find that privatized firms enjoyed significant improvements in efficiency, but that these gains were no different than those experienced by other private firms in their respective economic sectors. This allows us to conclude that Chilean SOEs were efficient before privatization. In terms of profitability, privatized firms in the regulated sector enjoyed particularly sizeable gains. In fact, employment in those firms increased...

    Incentive Structure in Transit Concession Contracts: The Case of Santiago, Chile, and London, England

    The objective of this report is to analyze the principal clauses of bus concession contracts to allow them to be adapted to other cities, and their concrete impact on the behavior of bus operators, the quality of the service provided, and transit systems finances, based mainly on the experience of Transantiago in Santiago, Chile, and in London, England . The ultimate aim is to derive lessons learned and provide recommendations for other cities that plan to embark on a contracting exercise or are faced with contract renegotiations with bus operators.

    Toll-road concessions: The Chilean experience

    Over the past decade growing demand for infrastructure has driven the private provision of roads, power, telecommunications, water and sanitation, and other public services in developing countries. Governments short of resources have sought alternative methods of financing transport improvements without affecting their fiscal situation. Charging tolls, too, has become an attractive option for managing traffic on increasingly congested roads. Although the benefits of involving the private sector in building and operating toll roads are apparent, some countries have faced difficulties in managing the processes involved. Like any private infrastructure project, toll roads require sound partnerships between the public and private sectors. A...
