Contracts, Decision Support System, Government, Organizational Projects, Public-Private Partnership, Research.



The objective of this research is to provide a framework for the selection of a privatization project and the support of a system of decisions. An analysis of 21 articles from 2001 to 2016 were carried out. The results indicated that PPPs is a tool to assist governments of countries with a limited or available budget to perform their duties in the provision of their services. PPPs may have access to financial markets, either by a combined allocation between government and private enterprise or by private financing in full. The develop of a structure with DSSs, generate a competitive advantage in terms of PPPs transitions. The experience with the DSSs offers an advantage with the decision making and in turn allows an interactive contact with its citizens.
