Abstract

This article examines operational Private Finance Initiative (PFI) school projects and reports the experiences of UK headteachers. It considers the impact of project size on value for money (VFM). Headteachers involved in small projects are more satisfied
with costs than those involved in large projects, but headteachers involved in larger
projects are more satisfied with affordability. Generally, heads are more satisfied with
the buildings than with the services. The authors question the government’s recent
policy changes to increase the size of PFI projects.
