Financial Reporting - the Private - Public Partnership Prospective - the Case of Albania

Kledian Kodra, Ines Dika

Abstract


In the wake of the recent trend in governments stepping back from performing administrative duties aiming at improving service quality of citizens, Albania has witnessed a rapid growth in the Private – Public Partnerships (PPP). The ever growing confrontation of the government with the challenge to improve infrastructure and public facility planning grows proportionally with the increase in demand from the population as well as the need for enhancing existing infrastructure and public facilities, which suffer from delayed maintenance interventions.One of the distinguishing features of the latest developments in Albania is the boost in the number of PPP arrangements completed and in progress, aimed at meeting different infrastructure objectives, efficient mining exploitation, construction of Hydroelectric power plants and various public facility centers offering an array of public services etc. The PPP arrangements take a number of forms depending on the degree of involvement in the private sector and according to the methods used for their implementation.In this paper we are going to focus only on the accounting and financial reporting aspect of these issues, from the prospective of the public sector entity, i.e. the offer, by giving limited consideration to the operators of these agreements due to the fact that the accounting treatment and the respective financial reporting for Service Concession Agreements for private operators are covered by IFRIC 12 of the Interpretations committee for the International Financial Reporting Standards on “Service Concession Arrangements”.
