When the public sector is not entirely self-sufficient, and there is a need for development to cater for increasing public needs, the public sector is called into place to fill the gap in Public-Private-Partnerships (PPP). After experiencing a baby boom, Rio de Janeiro city is in need of comprehensive plans in its education industry. Plans are underway to establish 20,000 new daycare facilities and 40,000 new chances in existing pre-schools by 2020. It involves PPPs where private firms will ensure construction, maintenance, and administration needs are met while city hall will provide consultation of buildings models and programs to be used in schools.

Specializing in infrastructure, Felipe Montoro Jens has been mandated to review the PPP regarding the sharing of both costs and responsibilities of the plan. He noted that the success of PPP schools in the mining capital of Belo Horizonte necessitated such an undertaking in Rio. In his review, Felipe Montoro Jens said that International Finance Corporation (IFC) would be handed the consultant role to ensure the projects take off smoothly. IFC will be on site during all the project phases giving consultation services from modeling, commencement, appraisal, execution, completion and even evaluation.
Felipe Montoro Jens is well connected, and as a project specialist, he recently shared details about an R $ 44 billion investment plan by the federal government of Brazil which will be spread over 57 projects and in 22 sectors. He noted that the entire plan will be under the Program for Partnerships and Investments (PPI) who are responsible for creating cordial relations between public and private sectors decision makers who make PPPs possible. Felipe Montoro Jens is the Chief Executive Officer of both Odebrecht Properties and EnergiparCaptação S.A.
The R$ 44 billion investment involves selling out The Mint, Docks of Espirito Santo, Casemag and Caesaminas to private firms. The Mint is Brazil’s national agency that prints documents for the governments including passports and its currency. The reasoning behind it as explained by Felipe Montoro Jens is that the government wants to leverage on the advanced technology that is not currently available at the federal-run company.
