Bid submission of P50-B prison project set on Nov. 24

The deadline for bidding submission of the P50.2-billion Regional Prison Facilities project under public-private partnership (PPP) is on November 24, the PPP Center revealed last Thursday.

The project aims to build a new larger prison facility to house inmates in Metro Manila’s crammed jails.

To be implemented by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the new prison facility will be located north of Metro Manila in Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija where it is expected to accommodate 26,880 inmates.


Three groups have already pre-qualified on the project including Mega Structure Consortium, San Miguel Holdings Corp. and DM Consunji, Inc. Moreover, the winner will finance, design, build and maintain the facility for a period of 23 years.
