Technical assistance and project advisory services are provided by the PPP Center to government agencies and local government units to ensure that PPP projects go through proper selection, preparation, and bidding. This entire process is characterized by transparency, accountability, predictability, and participation.
The Project Development and Monitoring Facility (PDMF) is a crucial milestone that propels the PPP Program. The PDMF is a revolving fund that supports pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, and other necessary pre-investment activities. With the PDMF, government agencies are provided the needed expertise and strategies to come up with attractive projects for private sector participation.
The PPP Center works hand in hand with government agencies in its role to capacitate government agencies in the formulation of PPP projects. To ensure a sustainable pipeline of properly-prepared projects, the Center proactively trains these agencies on the entire process of preparing PPP projects. Training areas cover project identification, selection, preparation and bidding. Importantly, the Center also provides timely, accurate, and reliable PPP knowledge and information.
Strengthening the policy backbone for PPPs is a vital function of the PPP Center to ensure the success of the Program. Laws and executive issuances are evaluated and amendments are proposed to further create a conducive policy environment to maximize the great potential of public-private partnerships in delivering quality infrastructure and development services.
