An Act Authorizing Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), Appropriating Funds Therefor, And For Other Purposes
- This bill is aimed at further improving the “Build-Operate-Transfer” (BOT) law by expanding its coverage and providing more incentives to the private sector who become partners of the government in infrastructure projects.
- To ensure consumer protection, it gives paramount consideration to the affordability of user fees and efficiency of public services when awarding PPP projects.
- It limits the projects to be implemented as PPP projects to hard infrastructure charging user fee or tariff and excludes social infrastructure projects such as prisons, education and health facilities, and other infrastructure projects like government buildings, tourism projects, power projects, climate change mitigation and adaptation measures.
