DA Public Investment Program

Formulation of the Department of Agriculture’s Public Investment Program (PIP) and Three-Year Rolling Infrastructure Program (TRIP)

Investment Programming serves as the link or bridge between planning (its backward linkage) and annual budgeting (its forward linkage)1. The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), as the country’s socioeconomic planning body, takes the lead in the formulation of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP). The Public Investment Program (PIP), as one of the accompanying documents of the PDP, is a six-year programming document that contains the priority programs and projects (PAPs) to be implemented by the national government (NG), government owned- and controlled-corporations (GOCCs), government financial institutions, and other national government offices and instrumentalities.

As a programming document, the PIP is expected to2:

  1. Serve as pipeline of big ticket priority PAPs for Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) and/or NEDA Board action under the current Administration;
  2. Identify new and expanded or Tier 2 priority PAPs responding to PDP/RM outcomes and outputs that are proposed by the agencies to be considered in the budget, and succeeding fiscal years under the current Administration; and
  3. Monitor the status of ongoing or Tier 1 priority PAPs responding to PDP/RM outcomes, especially those that have been approved by the ICC and/or NEDA Board, recently included in the GAA with assigned Unified Accounts Code Structure code.

The PIP serves as the list of priorities of the national government in the evaluation of programs and projects for funding and implementation within the plan period. These priority PAPs are set to contribute in meeting the targets in the PDP and achieving the outcomes of the RM. The PIP has the following subsets:

  1. Core Investment Programs and Projects (CIPs) – new or proposed big ticket PAPs for ICC and NEDA Board action;
  2. Non-CIPs – proposed or ongoing priority PAPs that do not need to undergo ICC and NEDA Board action review and approval process; and
  3. Three-Year Rolling Infrastructure Program (TRIP) – three-year programming document containing NG-funded priority infrastructure PAPs.

Public Investment Program System (PIPS)

In submitting priority PAPs for inclusion in the PIP and TRIP, the operating units of the DA shall utilize the PIP System (PIPS), a web-based project database system that manages data entry and updates on programs and projects, including the generation of reports.

The PIPS can be accessed by authorized PIP/TRIP Focals through for the submission of priority PAPs.

A PIPS User’s Manual will be made available in the PIPS for reference and guidance.
