The 1st Public-Private-Partnership Board Meeting

Created under Ordinance No 09, Series of 2014, otherwise known as the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Code of General Santos City, this PPP  Program is the city’s response to the global trend of investments that recognizes the fiscal inadequacy of the government and the capability of the private sector to engage in gigantic investments that if undertaken, will redound to the benefit of the general populace. This is the initial step in the implementation of procedures under the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Law and the Guidelines on Joint Venture Agreement (JVA) as prepared by the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA).

The city have entered into an agreement with the PPP Center of the Philippines to strengthen its PPP program by undertaking a 12-module internship program of which the city have successfully completed the 1st Module. In harmony with this, the GSC- PPP Board conducted its 1st   Board meeting on Oct.07, 2015, marking the initial step towards the approval of its Implementing Rules and Regulations (PPP-IRR).
