Legal Basis in Implementing Public-Private Partnership Projects
in General Santos City

In order to realize the implementation of Public-Private Partnership Projects in General Santos City, the Local Government Unit, through its Sangguniang Panlungsod passed two ordinances namely:

    Having been  cognizant of its role in advancing the general welfare and promoting the interest of the community and the city within the framework of sustainable and integrated development,  the Local Government Unit of General Santos City adopted this Ordinance  in 2015; with the end-view of ensuring the participation of the private sector in local governance through effective and viable Public-Private Partnerships.

     Specifically, this ordinance is enacted to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To provide rules and guidelines for entering into PPP Contractual Arrangements between the City and Private Sector Entities;
  2. To ensure that Contractual Arrangements reflect appropriate sharing of risks between the government and the Project Proponent;
  3. To ensure close coordination between the national government and the City;
  4. To ensure strict compliance by the City and the Project Proponent of their respective obligations and undertakings under the PPP Contracts and the monitoring thereof;
  5. To ensure that all PPP Contracts are awarded through an open, transparent, and competitiveness process;
  6. To encourage the pooling of resources and expertise between government and private sector entities through PPP as a viable, efficient, and practical alternative in pursuing the development goals of the city.

The 1991 Local Government Code and its Implementing Rules and Regulations do not define Joint-Venture and the requirements, conditions and procedures in choosing the private JV partners, hence, the absence of a detailed statute and national framework on LGU JVs and the authority of LGUs to adopt or enact their own LGU JV framework or ordinance was confirmed by the Department  of Interior and Local Government or DILG (Legal Opinion No.10, s. 2014, 8 April  2014; Legal Opinion No. 47 s. 2012, 13 July 2012) and the Department of Justice (Opinion No. 18, S. 2012, 3 April 2012). Moreover, as Presidential Executive Order No. 78 (4 July  2012) affirmed that local government units may provide their own JV rules, guidelines and procedures, the LGU General Santos City came up with its own  General Santos City Joint-Venture Ordinance in the year 2017.


In pursuing JVs,   as stated in Section 4 of the JV Ordinance, the City shall be guided by the following reasons and drivers:

a. JVs shall be promoted to provide more, better, affordable and timely services to the community;

b. JVs shall promote the pooling and community of resources, sharing of responsibilities and functions, joint governances and decision-making, mutual innovation, and profit, income, dividends, risk and loss allocation.

c. JVs shall encourage the accelerated implementation of local projects, allow for technology transfer, and improved efficiency and quality of service, provide value-for-money and good economic value, enhance economic and social benefits.

d. Procurement of JV Projects  must be competitive and must be undertaken through open competitive bidding or competitive challenge, or in certain cases, limited negotiations. Competition must be legitimate, fair and honest. The selection of the private sector co-venturer must be done in compliance with the requirements of competition, transparency and accountability.
