The PPP Center is providing UP-PGH technical assistance in the development, procurement, and implementation stages of the Project.

The 300-bed comprehensive inpatient and outpatient Cancer Center facility will serve both underprivileged and private patients under a 30-year Build-Transfer-Operate Public Private Partnership (PPP). The Cancer Center hopes to address the growing need to expand and improve the existing UP-PGH cancer facility, which is already operating at 400 percent capacity.

Under the arrangement, the private partner will design, finance, construct, and commission the standalone integrated cancer care facility. For the entire cancer center, the private partner will procure, maintain, and provide periodic replacement of all medical and non-medical equipment; operate and maintain all non-clinical services, such as facility maintenance and management, cleaning, laundry, and catering; as well as operate parking and retail outlets. For clinical areas, the private partner will provide clinical services to paying patients in a dedicated 150-bed private area. A dedicated 150-bed public area will serve underprivileged Filipinos and shall be clinically operated by UP-PGH.

Bidding is open to all interested parties, whether local or foreign, subject to conditions for qualification under the Bidding Documents, the Constitution, Republic Act No. 6957, as amended by RA 7718 (Amended BOT Law) and its Revised 2022 Implementing Rules and Regulations, and other applicable laws and jurisprudence.

The private partner will be selected through an open, competitive tender through a single-stage process based on the lowest required Annual Payment. The Bid Submission Date is indicatively scheduled for the end of this year.
