Build Operate Transfer (BOT) contracts in Public Private Partnership process have two important features: large budget and long life cycle. For these two reasons, these contracts are sensitive to the environment and face many problems in complex environments, such as the project environment in Iran. The structure of freeway partnership contracts in Iran does not fit a highly complex environment and so, performance targets are not achieved. The main purpose of this study is to identify the effective environmental factors, challenges, contextual obstacles, strategies, and outcomes in association with freeway partnership contracts. Therefore, with the help of this knowledge, a theoretical model can be developed. Case study strategy, qualitative approach, and data analysis by grounded theory are the main features of the research methodology. The findings of four freeway cases showed that the partnership contracts were developed without considering the long life cycle. Then, in the course of the construction, despite the effort in gathering many different opinions and expertise, satisfactory performance criteria were not established due to weak understanding of contractual obligations and risks. Also, in the operating period, the return on investment remains ambiguous due to increased costs, insufficient revenue, and high environmental complexity. In general, these contracts are defined as immature with dissatisfied parties. Therefore, according to the obtained facts, few investors express interest in public-private partnership contracts and are less desirable to investors. The private sector does not view infrastructure projects as idealistic and task-oriented but rather hunger for economic interests, mainly. Thus, in order to advance its goals, the public sector must have a different view of such investments. Also, the existing contract system, which is based on the employer-contractor experience, in order to fit the complex environment and achieve development goals, must prioritize structural reforms and normative changes in the contracts and strategies of the parties.
