Last October 18, the congressional bicameral conference committee approved the proposed Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Act.

This soon-to-be-passed law (awaiting the signature of the president) changes the legal landscape where the private sector can collaborate with government for infrastructure and development projects. This integrates various PPP schemes at the national and local government levels and streamlines requirements, procedures and regulatory approvals for all PPP projects.

In this half-day training session, we will walk you through these provisions and give you a clearer view of the new opportunities and challenges it brings.

In addition, we will answer your questions including: What are the PPP schemes? Must all PPP projects, national and local, be approved by NEDA? Are unsolicited proposals still allowed? What are the forms of allowable government undertakings, contribution and support for PPP projects? Are contract variations allowed? What is the role of the PPP Center?

Learn, unlearn and relearn PPPs under the new act. Register now!
