Abstract:
Background and Objective: Although most contracts carry mechanism for dealing with disputes, unresolved disputes can impact negatively, thereby hampering completion of public private partnership projects.

Materials and Methods: The study employed pragmatic paradigm and correlation with management staff of Sondu-Miriu Hydroelectric Power project made up of 85 personnel being the target population. A sample of 71 participants arrived at using Yamane (1967) were selected for the study proportionately as employer, financier, contractor and the project engineer. Interview schedules and questionnaires were used for data collection. Cron bach alpha was used as a measure of reliability computed from the construction cost overrun related risks scale, managerial skills scale and completion of PPPs scale and an overall instrument reliability of α = 0.723 was obtained. Data analysis involved descriptive statistics using measures of central tendency, variability, relationship and association in frequencies and percentages. Results: Hierarchical multiple regression was used to assess the moderation of managerial skills on the association of variables. Managerial skills moderates’ association of construction cost overrun related risksand completion of construction projects. Conclusion: The study therefore recommends that future PPPs in the construction industry should focus on developing criteria for selection of managers with practices that maximize on productivity.
