Course Description

LGUs have actively pursued PPP as a development strategy in the implementation of infrastructure projects and social services. LGU projects such as bridges, roads, power & water supplies, markets, land development, information technology, transportation, health care and socialized housing have been awarded to, constructed, and operated by the private sector through PPPs.

LGUs have contracted these projects through Build-Operate-Transfer, joint venture, lease and concession arrangements pursuant to the BOT and their respective PPP codes and ordinances. However, with the impending enactment of the PPP Law which seeks to integrate PPP schemes at national and local government levels and to streamline requirements, procedures and regulatory approvals, LGUs must navigate through this new policy environment.

In this one-day training, we will present opportunities and challenges that LGUs, private sector proponents, the business community, academe, donor community, lawyers, consultants, accountants, NGOs and POs must know.

Learn, unlearn and relearn in this pioneering event. Register now!
