Summary This paper describes the characteristics of public investment management (PIM) in seven EU countries as it applies to a single sector--transport infrastructure. The report highlights some of the common challenges that four relatively new EU member states--Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Latvia--face as they plan and execute their transport infrastructure projects. It recognizes theimportance that EU-mandated processes and procedures have in shaping national systems in the new member states (NMS), but the report finds that actual practices often fall short of EU goals due to capacity constraints
