The Department of Education’s Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for School Infrastructure Project (PSIP), which aims to address shortages in public school classrooms through partnerships with the private sector, has made it as the lone entry from the ASEAN to the internationally-acclaimed Partnerships Awards 2013.

The PSIP is a qualifier for the ‘Best Pathfinder Project’ category.

Previous winners were mostly from Europe and the Americas. The awarding ceremony will take place at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London on 23 May 2013, a statement from the Department of Education said.

Partnership Awards is an annual event organized by the United Kingdom-based Partnerships Bulletin and PPP Bulletin International to recognize and reward outstanding achievements in PPP worldwide.

“The shortlisting of DepEd’s PSIP to the Partnerships Awards 2013 is a recognition from the global PPP community that we are on the right path,” PPP Center Executive Director Cosette Canilao said.

The ‘Best Pathfinder’ category is a recognition given to public infrastructure projects that demonstrate the best ‘first of its kind’ in a sector or region.
“We are being noticed for doing things that we are supposed to do for generations of learners. Being included in the shortlist is already like an icing on the cake,” said Education Secretary Armin A. Luistro.

For this year, only entries and nominations for deals signed between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2012 were accepted. Industry professionals representing both the public and private sector will judge the entries.
The DepEd’s PSIP is the Philippine’s first PPP social infrastructure project. It aims to supplement the current initiatives and program of the government to address the current shortage of public school buildings nationwide. (DepEd)
