Yes! LGUs can lead economic growth by creating their own PPP programs. The PPP model templates our experts will provide -- aligned with the Local Government Code of 1991 -- will enable all LGUs in the country to have a comprehensive PPP policy that can fast track their negotiations, contract drafting, selection of private sector proponent and implementation of PPP projects.

Forensic Solutions has researched, analyzed, and devoted a great amount of time and resources to create the model PPP Code for LGUs that will be unveiled in this one-day seminar so you don't have to sweat and spend months trying to create an effective PPP program for your localities - whether on the provincial, city or municipal levels.

We've done it for you as we feature PPP and Private Sector Participation modalities - Concessions, Build-Operate-Transfer Schemes, Joint Ventures, Lease and Affermage, Management and Service Contracts, and Corporatization; procedures (solicited, unsolicited and negotiated); and funding mechanisms (project-finance, equity contributions, loans, and subsidies).
