Under Republic Act 7718 and its IRR, the implementing agency/local government units (IAs/LGUs) can implement their PPP/BOT projects through any of the following implementation modes:
Public Bidding (Solicited Mode)
The IA/LGU chooses to procure their priority infrastructure and development projects through transparent and competitive public bidding process. The IA/LGU requests for bids for its priority infrastructure projects, approved by the approving body, from project proponents that are pre-qualified through the bidding process.
The IA/LGU may accept unsolicited proposal from project proponent to undertake infrastructure or development projects on a negotiated basis provided that: 1) Project involves new concept or technology and/or is not part of the list of priority projects; 2) No direct government guarantee, subsidy or equity is required; and 3) The IA/LGU has invited by publication, for three (3) consecutive weeks, in a newspaper of general circulation, comparative or competitive proposals.
The original proponent has the right to match the better price proposal submitted by a comparative proponent.
