Philippines Compact

Projected Long Term Results
Project Estimated Beneficiaries Estimated Benefits
Secondary National Roads Development Project 282,000 $168,538,542
Kalahi-CIDSS 5,215,000 $124,861,302
Revenue Administration Reform Project 125,000,000 $141,200,000

The above estimates are based in the best, currently available, information and may be updated if new, reliable, data are available.

The total beneficiary count for the Compact may not be the sum of the different project beneficiary counts because of overlaps between Projects. In other words, some beneficiaries benefit from more than one project but are counted only once in the total beneficiary count.

Total benefits expected from each project are obtained from the ERR analysis MCC conducts during due diligence. Beneficiary counts, although consistent with benefit streams identified in the economic analysis, are not necessarily derived from these models (which are concerned with costs and benefits rather than beneficiaries). MCC estimates and reports expected beneficiaries when sufficiently reliable data exists to support the estimation. If such evidence is lacking, no estimation is attempted, resulting in an underestimation of projected beneficiaries for the Compact. Calculating the amount of benefit per beneficiary would therefore give an overestimation and can be misleading.

Project Objectives
Project Objective
Secondary National Roads Development Project

The objectives of the SNRDP are to save time and to lower vehicle operating costs.

Revenue Administration Reform Project

To increase tax revenues over time; and to support the Department of Finance’s initiatives to detect and deter corruption within its revenue agencies.

Results to Date

Information on results to date is available in the Table of Key Performance Indicators (a subset of the full set monitored under the Philippines Monitoring and Evaluation Plan). The full set of performance indicators is detailed in the final Compact Monitoring and Evaluation Plan. The Post-Compact Monitoring and Evaluation Plan includes a smaller subset of indicators that MCC requires partner countries to report as the Compact closes.

Impact Evaluation Framework

In addition to careful monitoring of implementation performance and measurement of preliminary results, MCC will be funding various independent evaluations. For the Kalahi-CIDSS project, MCC is funding an evaluation that will assess what would have happened in the absence of the MCC investments and measure the gains in income that can be attributed specifically to MCC-funded activities. For the RARP, the performance evaluation intends to determine whether and how RARP contributed to improved tax administration over time and decreased incidence of corrupt activities. For the SNRDP, MCC will calculate a post-compact economic rate of return. More information is available in the Post-Compact Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.
