On 19 May 2021, NEDA issued the call for all concerned government agencies and offices to submit their priority programs and projects (PAPs) for inclusion in the Updated 2017-2020 Public Investment Program (PIP), to synchronize the PIP 2017-2022, as a programming document, with the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 National Expenditure Program (NEP). The Updated PIP is expected to:
- Include the Core Investment Programs/Projects or pipeline of PAPs for the Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) and/or NEDA Board action, with focus on projects for ICC processing this 2021 that would require FY 2022 budget, consistent with the FY 2022 NEP;
- Identify proposed priority PAPs to be implemented, for funding through General Appropriations Act, official development assistance, or for implementation through public-private partnerships or joint venture, and/or other funding sources;
- Report the status of newly proposed and ongoing priority PAPs in terms of level of readiness and implementation; and
- Identify PAPs that have been completed as of 30 April 2021, and are expected to be completed by 2022, as well as those that are proposed to be dropped as priority PAPs.
