Where is CTIP-FII Strength?

CTIP First Investment, Inc. or CTIP-FII has become known to many companies involved in infrastructure development or landowners or project owners, as a company that they can rely on when it comes to project development and designing the right financial structure that fits their envisioned projects. These landowners want to develop their non- performing assets into performing assets. And many Local Government Units (LGUs) in some developing countries have seek CTIP-FII advice on how well they can move forward with their planned infrastructure development under what is popularly called Public-Private-Partnership (PPP).

PPP maybe popular, but the intricacies of undertaking a PPP Project is still not known to LGUs of most if not all developing countries. This is because the enactment of there PPP Law is usually on a national level, and maybe due to lack of information and understanding of the Law, many LGUs relies on dole-outs from their politicians or from there national governments.

The absence of a PPP Ordinance in the LGU level that is responsive to the needs of their constituents without deviating from the intents and purposes upon which the PPP Law was enacted on a national level could be the missing link in providing infrastructure facilities to their Municipalities or Cities, in the name of public service.

Our Rivercess County Community Hospital Project in Liberia is a case in point. The County and the Minister of Health and Social Services, have both realizes that an LGU can be a focal point of development or a project originator, without the Ministry dictating on them what is good for their County. This is a model worthy of emulation, where the Ministry’s role is to guide the County and help supervise the development of the Hospital Project. The responsibility on the PPP implementation is left in the hands of the local leaders.

  • CTIP-FII has won the hearts of the County Officials and the Ministry of Health. The importance of the PPP Law is being felt in the County, while on the other hand, success in completing the Project and make it operational for the citizenry has become a foreseeable future.

  • CTIP-FII therefore is strong in project development and designing the right financial structure for the Project. Not all Projects are alike. Therefore, that goes also to the type of contractual arrangements under PPP, and the right financing for the Project that can be introduced in the Project.

  • PPP is a mode, a concept, a methodology that can be used by LGUs when time comes there is budget limitations in developing infrastructure projects in providing a quality and efficient public service. There are many contractual arrangements that can be used to choose from to fit a specific infrastructure project. There are modalities like BOT, BT, BTO, BLT, and many more that CTIP-FII can recommend to an LGU.

  • The success of the political leadership depends on compliance of what they promised to their electorate once they are elected.

Defining Public-Private-Partnership
Public-Private Partnership (PPP) can be broadly defined as a contractual agreement between the Government and a private firm targeted towards financing, designing, implementing, and operating infrastructure facilities and services that were traditionally provided by the public sector. It embodies optimal risk allocation between the parties – minimizing cost while realizing project developmental objectives. Thus, the project is to be structured in such a way that the private sector gets a reasonable rate of return on its investment.
PPP offers monetary and non-monetary advantages for the public sector. It addresses the limited funding resources for local infrastructure or development projects of the public sector thereby allowing the allocation of public funds for other local priorities. It is a mechanism to distribute project risks to both public and private sector. PPP is geared for both sectors to gain improved efficiency and project implementation processes in delivering services to the public. Most importantly, PPP emphasizes Value for Money – focusing on reduced costs, better risk allocation, faster implementation, improved services, and possible generation of additional revenue.
