The Department of Education’s (DepEd) Public Private Partnership (PPP) for School Infrastructure Project Phase I (PSIP-1) is the first social infrastructure project under the administration of former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III. The project, which is in partnership with Citicore-Megawide Consortium, Inc., aims to help address the shortage of classrooms nationwide.

The Php 16.28 billion project involves the design, financing, and construction of 9,296 classrooms in 12 provinces across Regions I, III, and IV-A, mostly located in remote areas which are unreachable by usual transportation methods.

In April 2015, Aquino led the inspection of newly-finished classroom buildings at the City of Malolos Integrated School in Malolos, Bulacan, where the ceremonial turnover of DepEd’s PSIP-1 took place. Also present were then Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio Singson, DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Director-General Joel Villanueva, Public-Private Partnership Center Executive Director Cosette Canilao, and representatives from Citicore Holdings Investment Inc. Led by Chairman Michael Cosiquien.

The PSIP-1 is included in the seven Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects completed before the Aquino administration ended its term. The other six projects were:

  • Php 2.01 billion Daang Hari-South Luzon Link
  • Php 3.86 billion School Infrastructure Project Phase 2
  • Php 15.52 billion Ninoy Aquino International Airport Expressway
  • Php 5.69 billion Modernization of Orthopedic Center
  • Php 1.72 billion Automatic Fare Collection System (AFCS)
  • Php 5.08 billion Integrated Transport System
