The Department of Education (DepED) commissioned Megawide Construction Corporation (MCC-Proponent), through Public-Private Partnership (“PPP”), to accelerate infrastructure development and sustain economic growth. PPP for School Infrastructure Project No. 2012-2 (“PSIP-II”) is planned to address the shortage in classrooms, which DepEd estimated to be at least 67,000. The Proponent shall design, finance, and construct school buildings, which will be built on existing elementary and secondary school sites. Upon completion and acceptance of school buildings, DepEd shall operate the same.
To achieve timely completion of milestones and ensure compliance with the Minimum Performance Standard and Specifications (“MPSS”), DepEd and the Proponent contracted the Engineering and Development Corporation of the Philippines (EDCOP) as the Independent Consultant (“IC”) to will provide consulting services to both during the design and construction phases of the project.
