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 modification were made on the matrix and were noted by the ICC Cabinet Committee in the years 2014 and 2016.
The GPRAM identifies the party that could best handle the risks involved in undertaking a PPP project including some proposed mitigating strategies and contractual provision for each risk. It 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.
