The Public Private Partnership Center, a government agency, issued the Call for Participants: Preliminary Market Sounding Exercise for the proposed UPMin Knowledge, Innovation, Science & Technology (KIST) Park, as follows:
The University of the Philippines Mindanao (UPMin), with support from the PPP Center, intends to implement the UP Mindanao KIST Park Project (the “Project”), located in Mintal, Tugbok District, Davao City, through public-private-partnership (PPP). Aligned with the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2023-2028, the Project is identified to contribute to putting up infrastructure facilities, in partnership with the private sector, to reduce the complexity and upfront costs and risks for private research and development (R&D).
As part of the initial stages of project development, the PPP Center and UPMin are conducting this preliminary market-sounding activity to solicit insights and feedback on the project terms from interested private sector partners. This activity will run from July 31-August 11, 2023, and will be facilitated through email correspondence of the questionnaires.
The objectives of the Preliminary Market Sounding Activity are as follows:
• To discuss the scope and details of the Project;
• To ascertain the level of interest of the private sector to undertake the same;
• To gather initial feedback from potential project sponsors, contractors/operators, and financiers; and
• To identify potential issues or problems that may affect the viability of these projects.
