In responding to the needs of its stakeholders, BCDA is guided by its CSR philosophy: "We at BCDA are committed to fulfill our mandates to our stakeholders by improving the quality of life of and giving dignity to our workforce, our families, and the communities that we develop through the conversion of former military bases and other properties into premier sustainable centers of economic growth." 

Through its CSR and Stakeholder Relations Plan, BCDA aims to establish BCDA’s reputation as a socially responsible and reliable partner in nation- building, among stakeholders.

Its stakeholders are the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), project-affected communities and its workforce. 


Projects for the AFP

From May 1993 to December 2023, BCDA has  generated Php78.38 billion total contributions to the AFP. This includes disposition proceeds amounting to Php59.71 billion which covers its remittance in support of the AFP Modernization Program and its replication of military facilities.

BCDA remains committed to sustaining modernization by replicating facilities affected by its ongoing development projects.  These facilities are envisioned to greatly benefit the country’s defenders and help in their operations in line with national defense, and peace keeping efforts.

Projects for the Community

BCDA gives premium to inclusivity in its development projects. It is guided by its CSR Philosophy in reaching out to project-affected communities.

Sustaining Modernization

“BCDA builds great cities while helping strengthen the armed forces.” This mission resonates behind every initiative for the military, paving the way for high-quality facilities that are well-deserved and greatly useful.

In 2023, BCDA has turned over all 44 facilities of the new headquarters of the Army Support Command (ASCOM) in Camp Servillano Aquino.  This new facility was relocated from Fort Bonifacio and features residences, living quarters, including facilities for the Service Support Training School (SSTS), the 1st Transportation Battalion, the 1st Logistics Support Group, the 1st Maintenance Battalion, and the 1st Supply Battalion.

Another completed project is the three-storey Steel Parking Facility of the Philippine Air Force inside the Villamor Air Base in Pasay City.

Ongoing is the completion of the five-storey PA Special and Technical Staff (STS) Building in Fort Bonifacio, which houses the Special Services Center (SSC) and Division Administrative Command Center (DACC); the construction of the new 100-square meter headquarters of the Philippine Marine Corps at the Morong Discovery Park in  Bataan and the nine-storey residence for senior officers of the Philippine Navy at the Bonifacio Naval Station Lot.

Future projects include the relocation and replication of PAF’s operational facilities within a 146-hectare area at the OMNI Aviation Complex, south of the Clark International Airport.  On the other hand, PAF’s community and housing facilities  will soon be replicated within a 65-hectare area in New Clark City.

Other high-impact facilities built are the PAF General Hospital and Housing Facilities, the PA Officer’s Quarters and Hospital, and the AFP Housing Facility at the Joint Military Assistance Group (JUSMAG) area in Fort Bonifacio.

Doing More for the Community

Communities around BCDA’s high-impact project were among beneficiaries of social inclusion projects.

BCDA is among the supporters of the 311th Capas Day celebration themed “Capas: Weaving Traditions, Inspiring Generations (Capas: Pagtatagni ng mga Tradisyon, Inspirasyon ng mga Susunod na Henerasyon”). This is in support of an event that celebrates the vibrant culture and heritage of Capas, which is also home to the New Clark City.

Further, BCDA has partnered with the Bamban Local Government Unit for the donation of high value vegetable seedlings, specifically eggplant and green chili and farming hoe to around 14 farming organizations in the Municipality.

Sta. Juliana High School also sought for BCDA’s assistance in supporting its student athletes.  To help strengthen the performance of their youth athletes and boost their morale as a group and as representatives to  national athletics competitions, BCDA donated sports equipment and provided the opportunity for them to tour New Clark City.

Also, Decathlon Clark has served as a valued partner of BCDA with its social inclusion program. The initiative allowed for Decathlon to provide customer service training to indigenous youths/ within the community and also short-term employment as partners of Decathlon Clark.  The initiative rallies behind Decathlon’s campaign that sports is for everyone.


Responding to Their Needs

For the year, BCDA continued to provide medical aid to our soldiers by augment their facilities.   Receiving hospital beds, bunk beds and isolation booths is the Medical Dispensary, Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) of the Philippine Army located at Camp O' Donnel, Sta. Lucia, Capas, Tarlac. The donation is in support of the Dispensary's vision to become a station hospital that is one of the finest military treatment facilities that can provide protection and medical assistance to military personnel and its community.

Another beneficiary of medical equipment such as hospital beds and wheelchairs is the PN Civil Military Operations Group-Civil Affairs Unit (CMOG-CAU). In partnering with them, BCDA hopes to support their goal of providing humanitarian assistance to their identified Medical Hospitals and Facilities which include:  the Manila Naval Hospital, CMOG-PN Headquarters, CMOU-National Capital Region, CMOU-Northern Luzon, CMOU-Southern Luzon, CMOU-West, CMOU-Central. CMOU-Western Mindanao, and CMOU-Eastern Mindanao.

Further, among groups supported by the BCDA was the HERO Foundation, Inc., Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association, Inc (PMAAAI), PMA Retirees Association, Inc. (PMARAI)   and the Naval Special Operations Command.

Sustainability & Greening Advocacies

In line with its reforestation and greening campaign, BCDA participated in several mangrove propagation activities in partnership with media groups namely: the Central Luzon Media Association (CLMA) and the Samahan ng Mamamahayag sa Subic Freeport (SMSF). 

The tree planting activity was held at the Binictican Mangrove Area at the Subic Bay Freeport in Zambales.

This allows BCDA to deliver on commitments made with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to replace trees that will be affected by its infrastructure projects.

During the launch of its One Clark campaign in September, BCDA employees also conducted a corporate-wide tree-planting activity at New Clark City and surrounding areas.  This manifests BCDA’s adherence to its sustainability principles, and contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goals declared by the United Nations.

Recognizing Our Heroes

One of the key activities under the BCDA’s Stakeholder Engagement Program dubbed “Saludo sa Sundalo” is the AFP Forum, a platform for BCDA to continuously collaborate, and meaningfully engage with the AFP. The forum was pursued to inform our military stakeholders about the role of BCDA in the AFP modernization and its contribution to nation building under its mandate.  

To date, BCDA has organized 29 forums all over the Philippines. Among the forums held in 2023 were the Forum for the AFP Chief of Staff, Major Services and Unified Commands, the Forum for the Philippine Navy Flag Officer In Command, the Forum for the AFP Western Command and the Forum for Public Information Officers of the Department of National Defense and the AFP.

The year also saw the memorable signing of the Memorandum of Agreement for the installation of “Bantayog ng Kabayanihan” in Fort Bonifacio. The monument is a project of the AFP Civil Relations Service, in partnership with BCDA, the Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation and the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc.
