The 2012 Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Governors' Cup, was the third and last conference of the 2011–12 PBA season. The tournament started on May 20 and culminated on August 5 with the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters team defeating the B-Meg Llamados team by 4 games to 3.
The tournament was an import-laden format, which allowed an import or a pure-foreign player for each team and with a height limit of 6-foot-5.
The following format was observed for the duration of the conference:
- Single-round robin eliminations; 9 games per team; Teams are then seeded by basis on win-loss records.
- The top six teams after the eliminations will advance to the semifinals. In case of a tie, a playoff will be held only for the #6 seed.
- Semifinals will be a single round-robin affair with the remaining six teams. Results from the eliminations will be carried over. A playoff incentive for a finals berth will be given to the team that will win at least four of their five semifinal games that does not finish within the top two. In case of a tie, a playoff will be held only for the #2 seed.
- The top two teams (or the #1 team and the winner of the playoff between team with at least 4 semifinal wins and the #2 team) will face each other in a best-of-seven championship series.
