The Philippine Public–Private Partnership (PPP) Center invites eligible international and local consulting firms to submit expressions of interest to prequalify to be part of the Project Development and Monitoring Facility (PDMF) panel of consulting firms.
Selection process shall be undertaken in accordance with Asian Development Bank (ADB) Consultant Selection Guidelines. Deadline for submission of EOIs is on 22 March 2014. Details are available at http://csrn.adb.org/csrn/home.
The Center is currently restructuring the PDMF panel to further improve its technical dimension and facilitate upgrading in terms of the capability, expertise, and experience of the panel members.
From an initial nine (9) consortia of consulting firms in 2011, the panel has expanded to 15 members in 2012.
PDMF prequalified consulting firms shall be retained on non-committal basis for two years to support preparation and transaction of PPP projects in the Philippines.

The PDMF is being used to engage project preparation and transaction support consultants for PPP project preparation and transaction to develop a robust pipeline of viable and well-prepared PPP projects.
