The purpose of this study is to review and fit the public-private partnership model in the downstream Iranian oil industry. The present research from the audience dimension is basic, from the goal perspective is exploratory and from the dimension is cross-sectional. Data collected through a researcher-made questionnaire. Formal and content validity of the questionnaire were checked and it was completed  by 260 middle and senior managers of downstream Iranian oil industries. The data validation was analyzed using the ratio test technique, confirmatory factor analysis and structural-interpretive equations method. To design and review the public-private partnership model, we used structural-interpretive modeling (ISM) method and the partial least squares technique to attest the statistical model. The results show that the model has a good fit. Also, using the same tool, the factor load of each factor and the impact of each variable were determined.
