In spite of recent improvements in the business environment in the Dominican Republic, the government has shifted its focus to more traditional public investment models for infrastructure. While draft bills have been circulated among legislators since 2009, it is still not clear if a new PPP law will be passed in the near future.
Under existing law, any public institution can plan a PPP but delegating government functions (such as concessions) requires approval from both chambers of the legislature and an executive decree. Different government departments are in charge of decision making processes and negotiations, leaving no central unit to advise or oversee PPP contracting and making the approval of PPPs a lengthy process without a standardized framework. However, despite the absence of a framework PPP law, the Dominican Republic has been one of the most active jurisdictions in the Caribbean in terms of concessions.
