philgeps Online bidding will allow bidders and contractors to submit their documents through the Internet, benefiting those who are based in the provinces, Undersecretary Richard Moya of the DBM said Tuesday, June 9. The process can be accessed through “They are just pilot testing it in DPWH. If it works in the DPWH, we will mainstream it across all philjeps,” he said, adding that the department will complete the tests this month. Moya said the bidding has two stages: the submission of pertinent documents; and the submission of the financials. “With this one, you pre-load all your documents digitally online so that when you join a bidding, all your feasibility documents have already been verified. This would reduce the time,” he said. He, however, noted that contractors cannot simply make a bid; they have to register and pay a fee of P5,000, which covers a year. The online bidding is a reform initiated by the government, Moya said, acknowledging that the process faces legal, technical, and cultural impediments. All the results will be published online for everyone to access, he said. Delegates of member economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) on Tuesday discussed fiscal management through transparency and reforms. The overall goal is to attain good governance that results in inclusive growth in the region. — PIA ]]>
