The formulation of the GPRAM was based on the results of the studies under the Philippines-Australia Partnership for Economic Governance Reforms (PEGR) Facility. It was adopted by the Investment Coordination Committee (ICC)-Cabinet Committee on 07 December 2010. Several modifications were made on the matrix as noted by the ICC-CC on 22 December 2014 and 25 April 2016.
The recent modification were made on Section 1.3 – Permits and Approvals / Site Preparation to reflect the transfer of the responsibility to continue with the application of the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) to the Private Partner after the application has been initiated by the Government, since the ECC requires the submission of the Detailed Engineering Design (DED), which will be provided by the Private Partner.
The GPRAM is intended to be recommendatory and envisioned to serve as reference of the ICC and the proponent agencies in the ICC review of PPP projects.
