Project Management and Development

The PPP Center extends technical assistance to National Government Agencies and Local Government Units (IAs/LGUs) in the preparation, packaging, structuring, approval, and bidding of their projects with the private sector participation. Specifically, these cover the following:

  • Conduct preliminary assessment of the project’s viability for PPP implementation;
  • Conduct review of project concepts and proposals to be presented and discussed with the concerned IAs/LGUs;
  • Provide assistance in the actual conduct of bidding (i.e. pre-qualification processes, evaluation of bids, contract review. etc);
  • Identifies/provides solutions to various technical, financial, legal and contractual issues/problems related to project development, approvals and implementation, and;
  • Review and finalization of draft contracts and other bidding documents (RFP, Instructions to Bidders, etc)
Project Selection Criteria

Guidelines on the Identification, Selection, and Prioritization of Public-Private Partnership Projects 

 This Guidelines aims to institutionalize the criteria and process in the identification, selection, and prioritization of PPP projects using Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) approach, which can be a useful tool in determining potential PPP projects and ensuring generation of a credible list of projects that have a relatively higher potential of being procured using the PPP scheme.

The MCA screen serves as a tool to determine which projects can be undertaken through PPP with some degree of certainty before the implementing agency spends significant resources on their development.

MCA Procedure

Step 1: The implementing agency shall identify PPP projects from the priority list using the MCA screen. It shall be the first filter to determine whether a project is viable to be pursued as PPP.

The PPP Center shall assist the Implementing Agencies in developing their evaluation criteria and in prescribing the weights for each criterion. The Implementing Agency shall likewise develop the necessary documentation for each project that went through the process.

Decision Point: The suggested passing score is at least 2 points in the overall total project score and will then be considered for project development.

As stated, projects that do not pass the MCA screen may still be considered using other options such as ODA or budget allocations of the government, or may be reconsidered as PPP if the circumstances that made it fail, improved.

Step 2: The projects that passed the MCA screen shall be prioritized for PPP project preparation whose funding could either be through the Project Development and Monitoring Facility (PDMF) or other sources. The higher the score of the project in the MCA screen, the higher the chances of being the first to be prioritized for the development of the project.

Step 3: The projects shall undergo the Feasibility Stage (FS) 1 or the determination of economic viability. The projects that passed the prescribed economic hurdle rate shall proceed to the next step.

Step 4: The projects that passed FS Stage 1 shall be subjected to FS Stage 2 or PPP structuring. At the option of the Implementing Agency, it may apply funding for transaction advisory support under PDMF or through other means.

 

Procurement Process

After an implementing agency (IA) obtains approval of its proposed PPP project from the Approving Body, the project enters the procurement stage of the PPP process. The key objectives of the IA at this stage of the PPP process are to ensure:

  1. Adherence to the principles of transparency and equal treatment of bidders to bolster the professionalism and legitimacy of the process;
  2. Adequate competitive tension between bidders so as to arrive at the best bid from the most competent bidder;
  3. Minimize cost and delays without sacrificing the rigor or quality of the process; and
  4. Selection of a bid.

At this stage, the level of interaction between the IA and the private sector increases dramatically with detailed information about the project given to potential bidders and in the process, information on potential bidders is revealed as well. This leads to an important task of managing the flow of information between the IA and interested private sector bidders to ensure transparency and adequate competitive tension in the procurement process.

General PPP Procurement Process for Solicited Proposals

There are two options for undertaking the procurement of solicited proposals. The first option (a two-stage procurement process) requires a pre-qualification process before the issuance of the request for proposals. The second option is an abbreviated (single-stage) process wherein the IA may opt to do a simultaneous qualification/request for proposals instead of undertaking a pre-qualification process. Under the simultaneous qualification process, the bidders are asked to submit their qualification requirements along with their bid proposals on the financial and technical aspects of the project.
