Strictly speaking, all FEA undergraduate and graduate professors and students can be invited to work on various projects developed by FIPECAFI. Thus, its technical staff is quite numerous, since besides counting with its teachers and researchers, it relies on the aid of members of the faculty and students of the University of São Paulo.
Several FIPECAFI professors, researchers, and consultants have been studying the design, development, management, monitoring and evaluation of structured projects involving public-private relationships, especially the economic-financial and institutional aspects involved.
