Abstract: The relevance of the research topic is due to the search for funding sources and tools for implementing projects to create an urban management infrastructure using digital technologies. At the federal level, the Smart City project is included in the system of the national project Housing and Urban Environment and the national program Digital Economy, as well as in the state program Providing Citizens of the Russian Federation with Affordable and Comfortable Housing and ReevUtilities. The aim of the work is to study approaches to assessing the benefits and applicability of public-private partnerships as a mechanism for attracting private investors’ funds to create urban infrastructure using digital technologies. The research methodology includes a set of comparative analysis methods, point-rating and expert evaluations in terms of financing infrastructure projects for the development of urban economy. As a search for the best foreign practices in Russian practice, an analysis of theoretical approaches to assessing the ability of countries to implement financially sustainable and effective public-private partnership projects taking into account the international tool - the Infrascope index is carried out. It is shown that the possibility of implementing PPP projects has binary indicators, but at the same time, the acceptability of a particular legal form must be assessed taking into account the comparative advantage of PPP over budget procurement. According to the results of the analysis, the most popular and real forms of PPP implementation, if the object is information and communication technologies, are agreements (concession agreements) on PPP.
