 Build-Operate-Transfer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) is a form of project financing, wherein a private entity receives a franchise from the public sector to finance, design, construct, and operate a facility for a specified period, after which ownership is transferred back to the public sector.
Typically a Western customer contracts with an India or China vendor and the vendor builds and operates a customer call center or other business process for an extended period of time.
During the time that the project proponent operates the facility, it is allowed to charge facility users appropriate tolls, fees, rentals, and charges stated in their contract to enable the project proponent to recover its investment, and operating and maintenance expenses in the project.

 NLPI: News Articles
Build, operate and transfer project is a concept where the concession owning company plays a major role in each of the stages involved in identifying the project, providing all the required finance for construction and operation, completing the construction and finally managing and operating the company throughout the concession period.
The concession is being undertaken on a 20-year-long build, operate and transfer agreement.
NLPI, through a tender supervised by the World Bank, won the concession for the Zambia Railways assets and operations deal late last year, ahead of Edlow Resources of Bermuda, Sheltam Group of South Africa and CANAC of Canada in corporation with Norconsult of Norway.

 LUXOFT - Build Operate Transfer (BOT)
You may consider the Build Operate Transfer (BOT) model when you wish to establish your own offshore dedicated center but recognize that your unfamiliarity and lack of physical presence in the country of choice will lead to significant costs if you proceed to build the ODC facility on your own.
The “keys” are passed on to you during the transfer phase where the ODC is purchased from LUXOFT and you assume all ODC assets and liabilities.
To solve the problem, you retain a vendor to build a complete Staff ODC (other ODC models may be built, the Staff model is the most likely), work out the kinks, and eventually when all is in place to hand you the keys.

 Railway Age: Time to talk "turnkey"? - "design-build" and "build-operate-transfer" local transit projects
Each of these offers opportunities for time and cost savings and each involved varying degrees of transfer of risk and responsibility from the transit agency to the builder/supplier team, compared to the traditional process, under which fully developed plans and specifications for individual components of a system are issued for competitive, lump sum bidding.
Risk Transfer: In any conventional transit system procurement, with a large number of separate construction of systems contracts, the owner is obliged to assume the burden of coordination among the different suppliers, and most problems of component integration, as well as the risks and uncertainties of overall cost/schedule performance.
BOT projects have been most common as a means of encouraging private sector participation in major infrastructure development work in Third Word countries.

 Methodological and Technological issues in Technology Transfer
More significantly, there is some indication that the BOT mechanism favours climate unfriendly technologies (e.g., coal power generation) over alternatives (such as wind power), because of the need for proven technology, the preference for established project paradigms, the large scale of BOTs and the failure of governments to internalise environmental costs.
The essence of the BOT structure is that the private sector takes responsibility for the detailed design, construction, commissioning and operation of a particular project.
From the perspective of ESTs, BOT projects usually encourage the use of modern equipment and there is an incentive to be efficient, with climate benefits.

 Control Ciudadano : Informes país por país
The "BOT" method involves the private sector constructing a facility using its own funds, operating it for a period known as a concession period and transferring it to the Government at the end of that period.
The "BO" method is very similar to the "BOT" method except that the former does not involve the transfer of the facility to the Government.
During the concession period, the private sector is allowed to collect revenue directly from the users of the facility or indirectly through an intermediary, usually a Government institution.

 How Partnerships Work
The private partner builds a facility to the specifications agreed to by the public agency, operates the facility for a specified time period under a contract or franchise agreement with the agency, and then transfers the facility to the agency at the end of the specified period of time.
The BTO model is similar to the BOT model except that the transfer to the public owner takes place at the time that construction is completed, rather than at the end of the franchise period.
Under this arrangement, the facility may be operated by either the public agency or the private developer during the term of the lease.

The term B.O.T was introduced in the early 1980's by the Turkish Prime Minister Turgat Ozal to designate a Build Operate Transfer project.

 Build-operate-transfer contracts
There are many possible variations on the BOT model, including build-operate-own (BOO) arrangements, in which the assets remain indefinitely with the private partner, and design-build-operate (DBO) arrangements, in which the public and private sectors share responsibility for capital investments.
In a typical BOT arrangement a private firm might undertake to construct a new dam and water treatment plant, operate them for a number of years, and at the end of the contract relinquish all rights to them to the public utility.
The contract between the BOT concessionaire and the utility is usually on a take-or-pay basis, obligating the utility to pay for a specified quantity of water whether or not that quantity is consumed.
