Through its "Build, Build, Build" Program, the Duterte Administration aims to alleviate poverty, address the infrastructure gap, and increase the global competitiveness of the Philippines through the Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs & Hybrid PPPs) at the national, LGU, and GOCC level.
With more PPPs expected to be implemented and billions of transactions at stake, there is a great opportunity and demand for PPP consultants and experts to help guide governments and investors succeed on these PPP initiatives.
Filling the PPP capacity gaps and increasing the Tribe of PPP Champions
There is demand to develop PPP specialists or advocates who can masterfully lead their respective public and private sector organizations to structure PPPs effectively.
There is a need for a Philippine-based, intensive, and comprehensive PPP capacity building program to skillfully train participants to become Certified Public-Private Partnership (PPP) AdvocateTM or Certified PPP AdvocateTM.
With the objectives of filling this PPP Capacity Gap locally, of encouraging more participation and healthy competition in the "Build, Build, Build" Program and of increasing the tribe of PPP champions who will be at the forefront of their respective organizations' quest for PPP projects, Atty. Alberto C. Agra, the Center for Global Best Practices (CGBP), and Quantum Prisms Consulting Inc.(QPCI) have joined forces to roll out the Certified PPP AdvocatesTM Course or C3PAC.
The PPP Certification Program
The C3PAC uses a "ladderized" approach that requires the participants to complete the earlier module.
Participants who complete the three modules and pass the final assessment certification examination will be conferred the status of "Certified PPP AdvocateTM."
Attendees from the government are exempted
from the P2,000.00 limit for attending training provided by the private
sector based on Department of Budget and Management Circular No. 563
dated April 22, 2016.
C3PAC is designed to be a master-class on PPP that consists of three modules. The participants shall have the following take-aways per module of two-day session:
