In his State of the Nation Address, President Benigno Aquino 3rd identified PPP as a strategy to finance infrastructure and basic services through the assistance of the private sector.
He said NEDA will provide a checklist or template to help local governments develop into PPP-type arrangements in delivering basic services.
“With LGUs being at the forefront in local development, it is important that the options available for the implementation and financing of local initiatives are clear to them,” he said.
“It is important that the LGUs have already pre-identified projects for PPP, so that the more transparent solicited mode of procurement will be undertaken,” he added.
