The PPP Council, which is chaired by the Prime Minister, supervises PPP projects and regulates agreements entered into by public and private sector partners.
    The PPP Bureau is expected to be the institutional focal point for implementing the PPP program such as by identifying potential projects and actively participating in the project procurement lifecycle.
    In terms of procurement procedures, the Tender Evaluation Committee will be tasked with evaluating bids and selecting preferred bidders.
    The Law provides for investment incentives for private sector partners to become shareholders in special purpose vehicles, which include the right of financial repatriation by foreign investors.
    The participation of the private sector along with its financial capabilities and expertise in delivering certain public services is recognized as a crucial component of the reconstruction process.
