Public-private partnership is a new way to expand public services through the private sector, which should be increasingly taken into consideration in Iran. This research aims at identifying effective factors in the success of public-private partnership and providing a model for the public services sector in Iran. The data collection tool was a questionnaire and the analytical unit and the statistical population of the study were all public-private partnership projects in Tehran. The collected data were analyzed using exploratory factor analysis and multivariate regression. Results show that five categories of factors affect the success of a public-private partnership, which include: optimal management, trust building, information and knowledge use, attention to the interests of the people and financing. Based on the findings, the optimal management factor has the greatest impact and financing factor has the least impact on the success of the public-private partnership. Also, the rate of success for the public-private partnership is lower than the theoretical average. According to the findings, in order for public-private partnership to succeed in Iran, it is necessary to pay special attention to these five key factors.
